We've got the family fun on the farm you expect

Lancaster is known best for it's beautiful farmland and the experience of getting away from it all, and heading to a simpler lifestyle. Sometimes traveling with kids is... challenging, but let me just say that boredom is so un-Lancastrian. From amusement parks to farmland fun activities, we're sure that every member of your family will have plenty to keep them happy. It's great to be able to spend the day doing farm fun activities, getting energy out, and then driving into one of our towns and having dinner at a locally owned restaurant.
