The quaint shops and many of the museums in Amish country usually close their doors around 5:00. However, there is still so much to do during the evening hours in Lancaster County

We just spent a wonderful evening playing miniature golf at Village Greens in Strasburg. They are open until 9:30 during the week and 10:00 on weekends during the summer. Their two beautiful golf courses are set on a hillside winding through lush gardens. We finished the evening with ice cream from the Strasburg Creamery just down the street from the golf course. The Creamery is open until 10 pm.

Or for those who enjoy some haunting tales, there are Ghost Tours beginning at 8:00. These candlelight tours begin in either downtown Lancaster or Strasburg.

Maybe you would enjoy the local music scene. There are many venues around Lancaster featuring DJ’s, local artists, open mike night and even comedians. Be sure to pick up a copy of The Fly Magazine while you are in town to check out the current entertainment calendar.

And for stage and screen, we also offer numerous live theater productions and movie theaters including our new IMAX Theater.

So, although the serenity of Lancaster County is a great escape from the big cities, be aware that there is still plenty to do when the sun goes down!
