Taste Your Way Through Lancaster County

Visit Lititz, where the family can savor edible goodies, and make them too, at Wilbur Chocolate Factory and Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery. Or stop by the town of Intercourse for some treats at other great locations!?

Morning

The best way to start the morning is at the Bird-in-Hand Farmers Market. It’s an indoor market featuring local vendors with a wide variety of homemade goodies, fresh meats, cheese, fruits & vegetables, baked & canned goods, spices, and candy. Visit the other stores on the premise before you leave.

Just down the road you will find the Bird-in-Hand Bakery & Creamery brimming with baked goods from the recipes of Grandma Smucker's kitchen including the famous wet-bottom Shoofly Pie, large oversized apple dumplings, and more.

Continuing on a little further, you’ll see another local, non-chain bakery, the Bird-in-Hand Bake Shop. Here they offer some of the world's finest, freshest homemade goodies.

Afternoon

Love the 50’s? Then this is the place for you! DJ's Taste of the 50's has burgers, fries and shakes along with 50’s-style furnishings, menu selections and outstanding service reminiscent of the good old days. If you want something a little more refined, head to Lititz where you’ll be experiencing more delectable treats this afternoon.

Café Chocolate features foods made from local, organic, and fair-trade products. The shop is brimming with cakes and tarts and premium chocolate sweets made with 70% cocoa solids. Cafe Chocolate is commitment to both chocolate and sustainable agriculture.

Wilbur Chocolate Factory Store is a child's dream and a grownup's delight! Indulge in gooey caramel crunch or creamy Wilbur buds while you meander through the museum and factory store.

Come twist your own pretzel! Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery, established in 1861, is the first commercial pretzel bakery in America. Tour the original 19th century pretzel bakery, get a hands-on lesson in pretzel twisting, and learn the history of pretzel making.

Evening

S. Clyde Weaver Smoked Meats & Cheese has been serving Lancaster County with natural hardwood smoked hams, bolognas, cheeses and a wide variety of deli items. What better place to find a satisfying meal?

Close by are several great hotels: Homewood Suites by Hilton® Lancaster, the Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Lancaster, and the Hilton Garden Inn – Lancaster. Any one of them would provide a great overnight experience.
