Experience Lancaster like never before – with a hot air balloon ride by United States Hot Air Balloon Team! Relax and enjoy the exhilaration of floating effortlessly over Lancaster County's picturesque Amish farmland. Wave from aloft to earth bound spectators, and farmers working in their fields. Rides leave from the Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant & Smorgasbord, and you’ll want to grab a granola bar or bagel since you’ll be leaving the ground early in the morning.
With an early morning balloon ride behind you, what better way to relax from the morning’s activity than to relax at a spa. Check out one of our spas for a quiet moment of pure indulgence.
If you choose, you can get lunch brought in for you at Bernard’s at Brighton, or enjoy the best of traditional Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine at Oregon Dairy Country Restaurant & Buffet. When you’re done eating, be sure to visit their gift shop and grocery store.?
If a hot air balloon ride wasn’t enough adventure, then you need to visit the Wolf Sanctuary of PA. This unique place is home of the Speedwell Wolves. The Sanctuary currently provides food, shelter and veterinary care for over forty Wolves.
Or if you'd prefer an outdoor water adventure, check out Chiques Rock Outfitters located on the Susquehanna River in Columbia. You can climb, kyak, canoe, trail hike, and so much more!
For dinner, the Lititz Family Cupboard Restaurant & Buffet has everything you need.
Find a unique blend of true PA Dutch cuisine along with a sophisticated fare of delicious entrees, wraps, specialty salads and delightful made-from-scratch desserts. If you’re a chocolate lover, you’ll definitely want to head to Café Chocolate instead – there you will find delicious food made with local, organic and fair-trade products, and chocolate of course!
It’s time to rest for the night. The Lititz House Bed & Breakfast located in the heart of downtown Lititz, is a charming turn of the century home that offers a relaxing retreat. Another option close by is the General Sutter Inn with authentic Victorian and Colonial décor.
