Best Kept Secrets of Lancaster County Tour

Springtime is ready to bloom, and so is Lancaster County! Get a taste of all that Lancaster has to offer at this year’s Best Kept Secrets Tour.

What is the Best Kept Secrets Tour?

Like a home or garden tour, the Best Kept Secrets Tour offers an experience you can enjoy at your own pace and in whatever order best suits you. Spend a day hitting up the most eye-catching entrants or take a week to dig in to the local culture. Running April 5-21, tickets are just $10 and are valid for the entire span of the Tour.

39 hidden gems and local favorites have prepared refreshments, games, gifts, farm tours, demos, workshop tours, make & take projects and much more to help you get a first hand Authentic Lancaster County experience. Peruse art & artisan galleries, smell the roses at tucked away nurseries and garden centers, update your wardrobe at local fashion boutiques and taste the farm fresh goodness of our favorite restaurants, confectioners and dairies. While the participants are kept secret until the tour dates (that’s part of the adventure!) there will truly be something for everyone.

With the purchase of your ticket you receive a tour guide booklet describing each tour stop, a map to help you get around, valuable coupons from each business, entry forms to win a $200 shopping spree and over $1000 in prizes (No purchase necessary. Ask a clerk for a list of rules.) And the first 2000 people will also receive a free goodie bag filled with promotional items and gifts from the participating businesses.
