Downtown New Philadelphia
We are so accustomed to going online to shop or look for things that we forget about the resources in our own community. Downtowns were once the hub for the entire community. We lost that thought process when shopping malls and strip malls became the trend. When was the last time you needed something and thought to yourself, “I’ll run downtown and pick that up?” It may have been awhile, or it may have been never. It’s time to change that mentality. Downtown New Philadelphia has over 30 shops, stops, and restaurants. Let’s take a moment to explore, shall we…
The most common reason people head downtown is to eat, drink and socialize. Sometimes we forget just how many independently owned restaurants we actually have downtown. We have eight restaurants in the downtown vicinity. These businesses stand on our community’s support. How many have you tried?

One of the coolest things about our downtown is the vibrant art scene. We have so many talented artists in Tuscarawas County. Right on the square, we have an art gallery- Loves Gallery who frequently has fun, public events. We also have a new space called “Alley Cats Marketplace.” Located in this business, you will find dozens of various vendors selling their handmade and hand crafted products. You will find just about anything you can think of inside Alley Cats from pottery to coffee to wood work and everything in between—check it out. Another cool feature of downtown New Philadelphia are the giant wall murals located on Ashwood lane. These murals were created by local artists with the help of clients from Starlight Enterprises, who also have an East High Ave storefront filled with art, crafts, soaps and other products to buy to support their mission of helping those with developmental and other disabilities. In front of the murals sits the Ezekiel Project. The Ezekiel Project, home to 10 Hands Art Collaborative. The shop has cool vibes that invites a nice place to shop and see locally produced art. They also house different musicians throughout the year. These stops are all worth the visit.
