Bike rides, theater and beer!

It seems like years since the sun's been here in Lancaster County. Rain and overcast skies fell on what seemed like every day, but slowly and surely, we're seeing the sunshine more and more. And with the approaching summertime comes a lot of great events. As always, book a room at one of our many inns at www.authenticbandb.com.
