Fall in love with Lancaster

I love fall! It’s my absolute favorite season of the year. That’s yet another reason why I love Lancaster; it is a quintessential fall destination. The countryside is beautiful and there’s lots of fun fall activities for all to enjoy. Here are my Top 5 favorite fall activities in Lancaster County:

1. Hiking

Lancaster County offers many unique parks for your hiking and biking pleasure. Fall is the perfect time to soak in the beauty of leaves changing color, plus the temperature is perfect- the mornings are chilly and the afternoons are comfortably cool. My personal favorite spot to hike is to Chickies Rock, which is a “light to moderate” hike. Once you reach the top, you see a stunning view of the Susquehanna River and the surrounding farmland.

2. Lancaster City Cafes

When I think of fall, I think of putting on an over-sized sweater with a big scarf, drinking a cup of coffee, and reading a good book. Whether you want to get work done or meet up with friends, spend a relaxing afternoon in one of Lancaster City’s numerous cafes. My personal favorite is Prince Street Cafe, located across the street from the Fulton Theatre. The food is great and the hot beverages will warm up your heart and your fingertips.

3. Cherry Crest Adventure Farm

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is a great place for families to have a fun-filled day. The farm features a corn maize, a courtyard, and a barnyard with numerous activities. One can pet a llama, learn about farming, and go for a ride down a giant slide. A fun play area is also available for younger children. Oh, and don’t be surprised when you hear a loud train whistle – the Strasburg Rail Road steam engine passes right through the farm! It’s an incredible sight to see!

4. Haunted Attractions

For those of you who enjoy adding some thrill into your fall season, Field of Screams and Jason’s Woods are just two of many great Halloween attractions in the area.

5. Lancaster City Ghost Tours

Spend an evening walking around Lancaster City by candlelight. Explore the mysteries of one of America’s oldest cities. Experience the haunting tales of phantoms, unsolved mysteries, and star-crossed lovers. This 90-minute tour will be sure to send shivers down your spine!

Cherry Crest Adventure Farm’s Sweet Corn Festival

The boys and I were able to visit Cherry Crest Adventure Farm recently during their Sweet Corn Festival. While I’ve documented how much fun we have at Cherry Crest Adventure in this space before, some of the things we love about this place bears repeating.

Noah, my 7-year-old, still loves the tractor pedal kart / hay bale race course, the pumpkin slingshots and the corn maze. But what’s great about Cherry Crest is that there are so many things to do, your young ones can ease in to activities when you come back year after year. This year Jacob, my 4-year-old, went on the potato sack slide, the jumping pillow and the aforementioned pedal karts when last year he would have been too timid or too small to try one of those things (he’s not overly adventurous).

Old favorites for everyone include the farm animal center where the boys got to hold a chick and feed goats and llamas, the water pump rubber duck race, and the corn bin. There were some new additions this year as well. The had some giant Lincoln logs where you could build a playhouse sized cabin, and some carnival style areas where you could throw footballs, baseballs and basketball at their respective targets, hoops etc.

Roasted Sweet Corn

Because we went to Cherry Crest Adventure Farm during its Sweet Corn Festival, we received a voucher for a free piece of roasted sweet corn with each admission. As we’re Lancaster County residents, we get our fair share of sweet corn at home, but I rarely roast it for the family (we’re boilers) so this was a special treat for the boys. The roasting really brings out the sugary sweetness of late season corn. Noah loved it so much I anted up for an additional ear or two for him. I’m a sucker like that.

I took my video camera along for our day and I put together a short video. Hopefully it captures just how much fun of an attraction Cherry Crest Adventure Farm can be for families of any age in Lancaster County.

Halloween in Lancaster County

I know tons of people who’s favorite holiday of the year is Halloween – it’s fun to get dressed up in costumes, and take your kids out to get tons of free candy – or to go trick-or-treating yourself!

Well, fall is in the air, and that means a lot of things, but one in particular – Halloween is coming! So I’d like to share with you a few traditions that our family has taken on and some great things to do at Halloween in Lancaster County! Here are my top 3:

1. Hersheypark in the Dark is a must for the Halloween season. Are you a person who loves amusement rides but hates the lines? Well, then this is for you. Not all the rides are open, but there’s plenty and the lines are generally shorter than they are in the summertime! Also, when you go, with your park admission, you can get into Creatures of the Night & ZooAmerica! Visit their website for more details!

2. Dutch Wonderland has Happy Hauntings. It’s a family-friendly event where kids are encouraged to dress up in their costumes and enjoy themed rides & attractions, trick-or-treating, magic shows, and much more! See their website for more details!

3. Cherry Crest Adventure Farm has a Pumpkin Madness Festival. Throwing, launching, hurling, rolling, and dropping are all part of the festivities. Bring your own pumpkins or use some of their left over stash. See their website for more.
