Lancaster County abounds with energy during the holidays and even has some of their own traditions. Downtown Lancaster celebrates 3...2...1! with events at the local YMCA and by dropping a giant red rose in Clipper Stadium. There are events for the entire family, including ice skating, fireworks, music, food, games, and entertainment.
If a tradition celebration isn’t what you’re looking for, then try the Mount Hope Estate Gala. Don your best Victorian style clothing and ring in the new year with a 19th century charm. The American Music theatre will be featuring Cirque de la Symphonie. Listen to the sounds of the Lancaster Symphony Orchestra while watching the acrobatic and aerial dancers interpret the music. If you’d prefer to dance the night away, then visit Manheim for their Dancin’ in the Streets Celebration. For a more traditional night, you could visit Stoudts brewery and then return to a jacuzzi tub and feather bed to watch the ball drop in New York City.
Whether you decide to create a new tradition with a weekend getaway or you choose to bring the entire family and gather around to watch Dick Clark (we have tvs!), Adamstown Inns & Cottages has the accommodations for any family. There are only a couple rooms and cottages left at the Amethyst Inn, so make sure to book soon and have a memorable beginning to 2012!
