Best Kept Secrets Tour
An unusual shopping/food and fun adventure featuring 40 off-the-beaten path businesses, hand-picked for their uniqueness. Set up like a home or garden tour, you’ll travel place to place, in your own vehicle, enjoying all the special free things (refreshments, games, gifts, farm tours, demos, workshop tours, make & take projects, etc) the businesses have planned for you.
Your ticket is valid the entire time—do what you can in a day or take 16 days—it’s up to you. Collect tickets to play the shop & win game and enter to win over $875 in prizes. Enter to win a $200 shopping spree at the tour business of your choice. Plus, each place has given you a valuable coupon.
Although we won’t tell you the names of the businesses ahead of time (that’s part of the fun secret!), we will tell you the types of places you’ll visit & what you’ll see— handmade crafts, unusual gifts, home décor & furniture and artisan wares housed in restored barns, historic house and interesting buildings, farmers markets, garden centers filled with the colors of fall, and a one-of-a-kind art studio. Plus enjoy local cafes & creameries, bakeries, chocolatiers, fashions & jewelry boutiques, consignment and thrift boutiques, shops with homemade rootbeer and jarred goods, quilt and fabric shops, antiques, vintage, upcycled & collectible treasures, a mini horse farm, a few specialty shops and more!! There is something for everyone!
The stores are located throughout Lancaster County but if you follow our path you will never travel more than 15 miles between places and most are closer together. What a fun way to find the best kept secrets of Lancaster County!
