Lititz Springs Park

Reviewed By RicRei - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

We walked through the park a few weeks ago visiting my daughter. Very nice park, lots of ducks, geese, etc to feed, but nothing extremely special. Nice place to relax and perhaps read. Not very large, but appears good for local activities. Historical town to walk through as well. I would not go out of my way to visit this park, but if your in Litutz on a nice day, it's worth checking out.

We thoroughly enjoyed this historical and energetic musical set within an Irish Pub named McCourts. The 6 performers had marvelous voices and you could tell they enjoyed what they were doing. I highly recommend seeing this tribute to the Irish.So glad you enjoyed it. Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. We hope to have you with us again soon.

Root's Country Market & Auction

Reviewed By Audrey T - Boca Raton, Florida, United States

It wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but it was cold and rainy. Most booths outside were closed. The inside had a lot of food stands and meat stands. I wasn't impressed with the prices on some things. I prefer to go to Shrewsburys Amish Market and The Green Dragon.

We had company visit from Brooklyn. They had a toddler so we decided to visit the Alpaca Farm. It was packed with people as it was an open house day. It was a great little treat and we all enjoyed it.

Mount Hope Estate & Winery, home of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire

This winery is also home to a theater group, Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire's Acting Company, which puts on performances regularly.

Reviewed By eaglesnesttraveler - Hammonton, New Jersey

We enjoyed the historical part of the Renaissance Faire the most. Highlights for us included the drama of the King/Queen at start of day, the Royal Falcons exhibit (aviary), the archery demonstration (very knowledgeable), the umbrella/walking stick vendor, the jousting, the fire/whip Bonk man, the German musicians, the strings musicians in Pastimes, the artillery, scenery and all the actors and actresses! We enjoyed it very much. I would try to attend on non-Halloween weekend in future since many of the costumes were not Renaissance related. I didn't care for the occult influence (tarrot card reader). Water fountains would be helpful too. Bakery far too crowded and should have a larger venue. Bees were a nuisance. Overall a great day and plenty to do and see. I would recommend you try this event!

Wolf Sanctuary of PA

Wolf Sanctuary of PA is dedicated to providing as near a natural life home to the wolves and wolf hybrids that live here. We hope to share educational information with our visitors and introduce you to the world of the wolf.

Reviewed By Kare2Bme - New Cumberland, Pennsylvania

We visited late March on a Saturday with out-of-town guests. The youngest was 10 yrs and not really interested; though other 10 yr olds may have a bit more interest. The volunteer guides were very informative giving history and many stories. I went away knowing more & feeling good that I was supporting a worthy cause.
There is a free tour if you can show ID that you are a military veteran. Children under 16 yrs are not permitted to take the tour in the evening; perhaps they may be scared with the wolf howlings.
The interest in the wolf sanctuary has grown through the years from 12 to 250 visitors in about 12 years! There is no outside (government or private corp funding); so your ticket goes directly to the wolf preservation. Private tours of 2 or more can be arranged; but are booked solid for the next 6 months. On that tour you can see all 47 wolves. The best time to visit is in the cooler weather or probably evening as they are nocturnal animals. Several were awake and active when we visited Sat afternoon. Wear boots or old shoes...There is one steep hill at the end to climb.

Governor Dick is a great destination for hiking, biking, bouldering, cross country skiing, horseback riding, and just being outdoors! Loads of trails on a thousand acres of park land. Also connects to Lebanon Valley Rail Trail and adjoins State Game lands. Horseshoe Trail bisects the park.

Kreider Farms

Kreider Farms offers a farm tour for guests with a reservation. All tours begin and end at the Welcome Center, located at 1463 Lancaster Road, Manheim, PA 17545.

Reviewed By Ronald K - York, Pennsylvania

I enjoyed the tour very much. The only suggestion that I have, is that a different frequency or different transmitter should be used in the guides car. While out on the local roads, we could hardly receive his transmission. We kept hearing many different radio stations, rather than being able to listen to our tour leader. When he stopped at different locations on the farm, we could hear him OK.

Moravian Church Square

The center for Moravian life and culture in Lititz, the square holds the Brother and Sister Houses (men and women were separated in the congregation) as well as the original church, erected in 1787.

Reviewed By gwenrich8 - Reading, Pennsylvania

Not only a simple and lovely church, the surrounding grounds are worth a walk around. There are informative signs and nice pathways. Navigate to the Historical Foundation for wonderful information on these buildings and the history of the community.
