Arts and Theatre
When you get tired of watching the same old movies and shows at home, head down to the PIX Theatre in Lapeer's downtown area. Originally constructed in 1941, the renovated theater serves as home base for the thriving arts community in town. You will be able to catch live theatrical and musical performances in the 306-seat theater that are sure to have you completely enthralled. In addition to live performances, the venue often hosts second-run film showings and offers residents the option to rent out the entire building for a truly unique twist on celebrations and special events.
Downtown Lapeer provides ample opportunity for a great day of retail therapy. The quaint shops offer residents a level of quality, work pride, and customer service that is getting increasingly hard to find in more urbanized cities. Get lost in a maze of great works of literature at The Book Shelf, a small bookstore that also sells puzzles and games for the little ones. Silver Screen Embroidery specializes in adding company logos and custom stitching to nearly any fabric item you can think of. Keep them in mind when you are on the hunt for a gift with a personal touch.
Satisfy Your Cravings
You will find lots of unique dining experiences in Lapeer's downtown district. Hungry bellies will take delight in The Old Stove Cafeteria, where you will be able to build your own meal from a selection of casseroles, soups, and other homemade goods that are as delicious as they are healthy. If you are in the mood for the tastiest burgers you have ever had, head down to The Old Detroit Burger Bar for inventive twists on an old favorite. The restaurant also carries a selection of sandwiches, salads, and appetizers, so you can be sure that there is something for everyone in your party.
