What Is There To Do in Lancaster County?
That seemed to be the biggest topic of interest for 2015, because four of our ten most popular pages last year related to things to do in Lancaster. Our main Things To Do in Lancaster page was the second most active page for the year. This page shows the diversity of fun, attractions, and points of interest here. Also cracking the top ten pages were Kids’ Attractions, Amish Attractions, and Free Things To Do in Lancaster. Another popular page was Family Attractions.
Events Are Popular in Lancaster
Our popular Lancaster Events Calendar was another top ten page last year. This page lists events day-by-day all year long. You can check out any day of the year to see what is going on in and around town. Topical events pages were also popular last year, especially our Mud Sales page, our July 4th Activities page, and our Christmas in Lancaster page.
This Week in Lancaster is updated every week or two to highlight popular goings on during the current week as well as presenting upcoming events and items of interest.
The three most popular individual events for 2015 (in case you were wondering) were the Gordonville Spring Mud Sale, Joseph at Sight & Sound Theatre, and the Strasburg Spring Mud Sale. (By the way, the 2016 Mud Sale Schedule kicks off on February 27th with this year’s edition of the Strasburg Spring Sale. The Gordonville Spring Sale will be on March 11-12. And Samson will be replacing Joseph at Sight & Sound.)
Our Amish Neighbors
The Amish settlement in Lancaster County is the oldest Amish settlement in the world. It still attracts a lot of attention because of the Amish community’s firm convictions, strong faith, and family values. Our Amish and the Plain People page was once again one of our top pages last year. Also popular was our page on Amish People and Culture.
While the Amish are known for being non-violent, our society unfortunately is not. Our pages on the 2006 Amish School Shooting and the resulting Amish Forgiveness of the shooter remain popular to this day.
