Welcome Back, Friends

It's been over a year since Authentic Bed and Breakfasts posted our last blog. A blog that featured mudsales, quilt shows, and more that unfortunately never happened. However, it's a year later, and although we're not completely back to normal, things are looking promising. All of our inns are committed to safety and taking all necessary precautions for our valued guests. So, whether you are ready to dine out, catch a show, support our amazing small businesses, or spend some time in the great outdoors, we've got you covered. We can't wait to see you again and introduce you to some of Lancaster's finest attractions.

When it comes to dining, Lancaster County restaurants have taken impressive and innovative strides to adapt this past year. Whether you want to dine in your own personal igloo, outside on a cobblestone street, or grab a meal and adult beverage to go, restaurants across the county have you covered. There is also an impressive number of food trucks throughout Lancaster County. Find where they're parked by visiting Food Trucks in Lancaster.

For those who love the theatre, Lancaster is home to some of the best. It might take a bit of planning ahead, but it's worth the extra steps. The Magic and Wonder Show is getting rave reviews for it's exhilarating and edge-of-your-seat performances. Guests can get a good laugh with Ryan & Friends at Bird-in-Hand Theatre.
