Recently named by Forbes as one of "The 10 Coolest Cities to Visit in 2018," Lancaster is quickly becoming a destination spot for visitors and dubbed as the "newly hip Victorian city ... boasting a bustling food bed and quickly becoming a cultural hotbed." And we couldn't agree more.
After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, the winter months can be a real drag. Break up the lull of the winter with a weekend getaway and explore new territory. Check out downtown, explore Amish country or hit up one of the many specialty shops. For train enthusiasts, Strasburg is a great town to explore centered around trains, including the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania. Swing by the Speckled Hen for a bite to eat or a cup of java. A trip to Lancaster isn't complete without a horse and buggy ride so visit Aaron & Jessica's Buggy Rides in Ronks.
If you're more interested in the city life of Lancaster, be sure to peruse Central Market, which is named one of the world's top markets, offering everything from locally grown produce to meats and cheeses, prepared foods from around the world, handmade trinkets and more. Head down the street to see what's on tap at Lancaster Brewing Company (may I suggest a pint of their Double Chocolate Milk Stout?) or enjoy a first-class meal at the Pressroom Restaurant & Bar. And the good news is, these establishments are all passport partners with discounts at inns. Ask your innkeeper for more information.
Whether it's a romantic weekend away in February or an impromptu adventure out of town, visit Lancaster County and one of the many attractions - we hope to see you in Lancaster County in the new year!
