In its Best College Towns online feature, Southern Living magazine had warm words for Centre College and Danville, and mentioned our very own Pioneer Playhouse as one of the town’s top attractions.
It’s something we already knew, but it’s always nice to be recognized in the South’s premiere lifestyle magazine.
The small town of Danville is a cozy haven for the discipline and studiousness of students at Centre. Consistently rated one of the best and most historic main streets in the nation, what Danville lacks in size it makes up for in picturesque charm. Catch a show at the Pioneer Playhouse, an outdoor theater and campground. Students hang out at The Hub Coffee Shop and enjoy craft beers at Bluegrass Pizza; you’ll find them grabbing fajita nachos and pitchers of margaritas at Guadalajara (a.k.a. “the Guad”) or Italian at Freddie’s. After a day in Danville, enjoy a lovely meal at Cue on Main, or sample some of the 70 different bourbons at Old Owl Tavern in neighboring Harrodsburg.
