The Lancaster Art Market, an outdoor gallery for artists to sell their items, has finally opened. Feel free to peruse the artwork, just like you would in the many other galleries Downtown. The market is only open during First Fridays, so plan your trips accordingly!
Another popular outing is antiquing in Adamstown, the antique capital of the world. With many shops to choose from, you will be surrounded in treasures and memorabilia from days past. For a local treat, head to the Kitchen Kettle Village, a fun time for any age. Known for their canning kitchen, they also have specialty stores, educational activities, and many festivals throughout the year. Two of the summer events include the Rhubarb Festival the weekend of May 18th, and the Music Festival, on Saturday June 16th.
Of course it wouldn’t be a trip to Lancaster County, without visiting the famous town of Hershey! In the “sweetest place on Earth”, you’ll enjoy a free tour ride simulating the journey of a cocoa bean from the rainforest to your favorite chocolate candy. Then on Sunday evenings swing by Long’s Park to listen to their summer concert series. While music flows through the evening air, enjoy the playgrounds, tennis courts, lake, and fitness trail. What’s your favorite affordable activity in Lancaster County?
