Three Lancaster County Small Towns Worth A Walk-Through

Some of the best Lancaster County has to offer can best be seen
and experienced by taking a stroll.

That’s especially true of several charming
small towns in Pennsylvania Dutch Country. In particular: Ephrata, Lititz, and
Intercourse.

With downtown districts that have so much to do and see, ditch
the car and check out these traditional towns on foot.
Ephrata
Nearly centrally located between Reading and Lancaster,
Ephrata is easy to get to and full of character.  And
our inn
is just a mile from the heart of it all!
Check out live theater productions at Ephrata Performing Arts
Center
and the latest blockbusters at the Ephrata
Main Theatre
. While you’re out and about, explore the quaint thrift stores
overflowing with trendy treasures and fun fashions.
The eateries in Ephrata run the spectrum of casual Italian
to Vietnamese to Spanish to American fine dining. And then there’s the Black Forest Brewery and sweets
shop Scratch Bakes. You’re sure to
find something to please your pallet perfectly during your walk through town.
Lititz
An online survey by Budget Travel named Lititz America’s
Coolest Small Town in 2013, so you know you’re in for a treat. In Lititz, the
architecture is breathtaking and all of the below are there for you to enjoy as
you walk downtown:
·      
Wilbur
Chocolates
·      
Brew pubs
·      
Bakeries (breads, pastries, and other sweets)
·      
Ice cream parlors
·      
Boutiques (unique clothing, jewelry, artwork,
and perfect gifts)
Intercourse
No stay in Lancaster County is complete without experiencing
the authentic Amish heritage of Intercourse.
This sampling of Pennsylvania Dutch Country is a world in and of itself. Be
sure to browse the classic shops of Kitchen Kettle Village to
sample jams, jellies, salsas and more. You’ll also see handcrafted furniture
being made, and you can even catch a ride in an Amish buggy. And
with traditional PA Dutch eateries to satisfy your appetite, you won’t leave
Intercourse hungry.
Of course, all that walking can be exhausting, so book your stay with us, and we’ll make sure you get a good night’s rest and warm
breakfast before you head out on your next Lancaster County adventure.
