Why visit Lancaster?
Our family really enjoys going on long drives or long walks to see the cows, farms, the Conestoga river flowing by. It's so peaceful and something we don't have much of where we live. If you're not really into farms or animals, then try stopping at a road side stand for a fresh baked soft pretzel, a bite to eat or an ice cream cone. What's not to like about stopping for food? Food is the highlight of my vacations. I don't have to make it, and it always tastes better. Those of you who are moms out there know what I'm talking about, right? ;-)
There are cultural experiences like visiting an Amish farm, taking a buggy ride, touring a one room schoolhouse and more. We from these, but the don't usually flock to these as a family as out kids are young, but they are a great way to learn about a different culture and way of living. Summer break doesn't mean the kid's don't learn anything. There are always learning experiences.
If you want to amp up your kids learning adventures when you visit Lancaster, try visiting a snapology location. At Snapology children will be guided through hands on activities using things they already love: LEGO® bricks, K’Nex and technology. Great for children ages 1-14. They offer classes, camps and parties that are so fun I bet kids won't even realize they're learning. That's the best kind of learning in my opinion. My oldest son would LOVE this. I wish I'd learned about it in time to go this past Summer. There's always next year!
We also visited the Turkey Hill Experience while we were in the area. I have to be honest and say this was a let down for the adults, but the kids had a good time. My boys loved the small slide and ball pit at the very end, and of course, the endless scoops of ice cream. It's something to do, but if you ask me, I'd say skip it. There are more interesting things to see and do.
If you're into shopping, then look no further. Lancaster has several sets of outlets. They have the Tanger and Rockvalle outlets. They have store ranging from high end names like Lord & Taylor and Ann Taylor Loft to Charlotte Russe and Rue21 to home stores like L.L. Bean and more. I feel like there is a store for everyone.
I think it's a really great place to go for a family vacation. It has great food, shops, family activities and peace and quiet. That's all I ask for in a good vacation spot. What's your favorite vacation spot? Let me know below!
