Landis Valley is more than a museum, for some reason people think museums are boring, this outdoor fun that is mixed with experience. May 11-12 is their Herb & Garden Faire. There will be vendors and hands on things to try, plants to take home or just see them growing. You spend a few hours or all day depending on your level of interest.
Small town America is a wonderful way to live. To showcase this what they offer two very local towns have 4th Friday events. Mount Joy (just 3 miles) has little shops open till 8 and food in abundance at the cafes and restaurants. Usually there is street music and town is bustling with people walking the streets and enjoying the locals. Columbia (6 miles) offer food, art and other goings on. It gives a different prospective on how people really live.

Lancaster County has a very unique dining option called Katie’s Kitchen. About 5 years ago an Old Order Amish family bought a Freeze and Frizz and made it into a small restaurant which has homemade food that is really simple and delicious. Most of the girls who wait tables are Amish. The food is fresh and wonderful.
