Do you happen to be visiting our bed & breakfast, Amethyst Inn during October and want to make sure you don’t miss autumn festivities of Lancaster Amish Country? Every weekend there are opportunities to frolic through the Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, to learn about the ghosts of historic Lancaster, and to explore the haunted attractions at Jason’s Woods.
My favorite fall activity is the challenge of a corn maze and trying to find as many checkpoints as possible. I usually end up lost and mindlessly wandering in circles, passing the same cornstalk over and over again to the point where I start to recognize that I’ve been there before! Luckily I’ve made it out every time; usually with the help of my friends after they’ve had numerous accounts of fun scaring me in the dark. The Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, in Ronks PA, has a 5 acre corn maze where hopefully you’ll have better luck than me! There are also plenty of other activities such as a barnyard with games and a singing chicken show, as well as a courtyard with wagon tours, goats and ice cream! Every Saturday in October from 12-6 pm they are celebrating their Harvest Festival!
If you’re not a scaredy cat like me, you’ll probably enjoy Jason’s Woods and the Lancaster Ghost Tour. Jason’s Woods has eight creepy attractions such as a hayride, museum, psycho circus, and a mystery maze. Even the roads leading to the site is unnerving and the epitome of Halloween entertainment. Historic Downtown Lancaster offers a candlelight tour that explores haunted mansions, eerie graveyards, and spirits. Every night a 8 pm you’ll be able to relive the past 300 years of haunted history of Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish Country.
So whether you decide on the family adventure at the corn maze, the haunted woods, or the historical ghost tour, Lancaster has an adventure for everyone. After a day on the farm or an evening among the ghosts, you’ll be relieved to the return to the Amethyst Inn, a Lancaster Pennsylvania bed and breakfast, for a relaxing and safe nights rest.
