Lancaster County Christmas

Lancaster County Christmas is the best kind of holiday wish list

As November turns to December, the holiday wish list becomes a prime focus of attention and conversation. But at heart, the yuletide season is all about traditions and family.

So why not combine the two this year with a Lancaster County Christmas wish list that's less about getting and more about connecting.

Need some quality time with family and friends? Want to simply celebrate the sheer fun of Christmastime? Looking for some new seasonal memories you'll cherish for years?

Then head for the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country and a more fulfilling type of holiday wish list, where you & yours can:

  • Sing along with yuletide favorites during American Music Theatre's annual Christmas Show, or discover the true spirit of the season with holiday productions at the Fulton Theatre, Sight & Sound Theatre, or Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre.
  • Marvel at the creativity and variety of shopping "finds" while strolling through our charming towns and villages.
  • Ride with childlike wonder on "Kite Flight" at Dutch Winter Wonderland, or on one of the Christmas Trains at the Strasburg Rail Road.
