Take It All In

So Much To See, So Much To Do

Every sunrise over the gentle hills of the surrounding farmlands brings a day full of possibility. If you’re looking for events and things to do in Lancaster County, our Bird-in-Hand family of properties offer the perfect place to stay close to everything you want to do. As our Guest, you’re invited to get to know the side of Amish Country we call home, with a complimentary tour of back roads and farmlands. Enjoy a memorable ice cream social with the Smucker family. Test your stamina or cheer on the runners in the Bird-in-Hand Half Marathon. Take a hot air balloon ride or tour The Amish Village. Nearby, you’ll find farmers markets, quilt shops and boutiques, as well as outlet stores, Sight & Sound Theatres, Hersheypark, Dutch Wonderland, the Strasburg Railroad, and more. If you want to know more about events and attractions, explore our website or ask our knowledgeable staff for recommendations.

Why work alone? Being an artist/creator has its challenges. Be with others who truly understand and have experienced those challenges.

On select nights, Horst Arts in Manheim, PA will open its doors to artists and creators of all sorts to exercise their craft in a common space. This space includes an 11′ diameter round scrap-wood table housed in a bright, eclectic studio. There’s no fee and no set activity. Simply bring your supplies and work on your project while hanging out with other local artists. Compare notes, challenges and successes. Share critiques. Be encouraged!

Note that while this is a free event, you are required to sign up.
