Activities & Area Events

Pennsylvania Dutch Country is the perfect rural getaway. You won’t find a more family-friendly destination out there! There is so much to do, so many places to shop for handcrafted goods, and so many places to enjoy a hearty meal that you’ll want to book your reservations for either a longer stay or multiple stays!

We recommended Guests bring plenty of cash & checks (physical currencies) with them on their trip to Lancaster County. Almost all local Amish businesses do not use modern forms of electronic payments.
