Autumn Leaves in Lancaster PA

In Southeastern Pennsylvania, the Autumn leaves reach their peak colors during the last two weeks of October. If you happen to be vacationing with us at Adamstown Inns & Cottages this month, you will be treated with beautiful red and yellow leaves. Or perhaps you’re from a part of the country that doesn’t have 4 seasons, then we encourage you to visit and experience this natural beauty.

After enjoying the gardens at the Amethyst Inn, there are plenty of sightseeing opportunities and hiking trails to catch the red hues this season! Here’s a list to get you started:



So grab your camera, hiking boots, and mittens for a day of capturing beautiful pictures of the Lancaster County skyline. And just so you have something else to look forward to, you can warm up by the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa after!

Fall in Lancaster, Pa

If you’re travelling to Adamstown, in Lancaster County, PA this October, you won’t miss out on celebrating the Halloween season. With haunted adventures at Hershey Park, corn mazes, and haunted hayrides, you’ll keep your family entertained during your entire vacation!



Hershey Park uses their famous milk chocolate to make fall even sweeter. They have set up a trick-or-treating adventure for kids and have a trolley tour on the weekends, in which the history of Hershey comes to life. Also on weekends, they are hosting a s’mores campfire party with stories, songs, and obviously their famous melted dessert!
For more family adventures, visit the Cherry Crest Adventure Farm. Their 5 acre corn maze is open in the evenings, so make sure you take a flashlight to help find your way out! Once you’ve found your way out of the maze hop on a wagon ride, and then stay warm by the campfire. If you can visit on a Saturday, there are more activities during the Harvest Fest. You can pick pumpkins, take a pony ride, get your face painted, and even pick your own popcorn!


If you’re looking for a spookier Halloween adventure, visit Jason’s Woods and their 7 attractions. Choose just a couple tours, or explore all of them, including their new paranormal bus tour! On Friday night, they host a bonfire and tailgate party with music that is included in your admission price. With 2-3 ½ hours of fun, you’ll be glad you visited this Halloween attraction. Just remember to take cash, as they do not accept credit cards.

After your corn maze, or your time in Jason’s Woods, you’ll want to relax and warm up. Adamstown Inns & Cottages has the perfect amenities to do just that! You can sip tea or hot cocoa by your personal fireplace, or relax in a whirlpool tub. Then in the morning relax on the porch and enjoy the fall colors of the Pennsylvania foliage!
