An unusual shopping/food and fun adventure featuring 40 off-the-beaten path businesses, hand-picked for their uniqueness. Set up like a home or garden tour, you’ll travel place to place, in your own vehicle, enjoying all the special free things (refreshments, games, gifts, farm tours, demos, workshop tours, make & take projects, etc) the businesses have planned for you. Your ticket is valid the entire time—do what you can in a day or take 16 days—it’s up to you. Collect tickets to play the shop & win game and enter to win over $800 in prizes. Enter to win a $200 shopping spree at the tour business of your choice. Plus, each place has given you a valuable coupon. Although we won’t tell you the names of the businesses ahead of time (that’s part of the fun secret!), we will tell you the types of places you’ll visit & what you’ll see— handmade crafts, unusual gift shops, home décor & furniture shops, artisan shops, a few made-from-scratch bakeries and yummy sweet treat shops, greenhouses blooming with autumn color and garden centers filled with everything a gardener needs. Plus enjoy a home tour of a 1700’s log cabin, local cafes & restaurants, creameries, several Amish farms with stores, chocolatiers, pretzel bakeries, a goat dairy where you can feed the goats and taste the products, fashions & jewelry boutiques, amazing floral creations, a fascinating museum, gourmet food & spice shops, local farm markets, a leather craftsman, antiques, upcycled & collectible treasures, a few specialty shops and more!! There is something for everyone! What a fun way to explore the county! The stores are located throughout Lancaster County but if you follow our path you will never travel more than 15 miles between places and most are closer together.
