I started the Best Kept Secrets Tour in 2008 as a new, out-of-the-box way to generate traffic to my family’s business and to raise funds for my favorite local charity.  The results of the first tour far exceeded my goals and the lasting success of the program has been greater than I could’ve imagined! Ten years later, the Best Kept Secrets Tour is being offered in 12 Pennsylvania and 2 Maryland Counties!  For every tour ticket purchased $1 is donated to a local charity. I am proud to announce that by the end of 2018 will we reach over $100,000 donated to local non-profits.  I am thrilled to achieve this milestone for the 10th Anniversary of the tour!

Best Kept Secret GirlsFor 10 years I have traveled the back roads finding new “secrets” to showcase on the tour.  Hundreds of brick & mortar, mom & pop shops have benefited from the added traffic the tour provides and thousands of tour-goers have found tucked away treasures in their own backyard!  It gives wives and husbands, moms and daughters, sisters and friends an affordable fun way to spend some time together.  I get letters and emails weekly from tour goers sharing their experiences:  couples who have made this their annual anniversary tradition, the large, spread out family who has made the tour their annual reunion get-together, sisters who make a weekend out of it, old friends getting together to tour, daughters planning it as a mother’s day gift.  The tour is self-directed in your own vehicle and the ticket is valid for 16 days so you’re able to do it at your own pace which makes it perfect for every age.  My 91-year-old grandmother even enjoyed it!

The tour really is an exciting and easy way to explore!  No two tours are ever the same so you will always find something new.  I have tour-goers that are addicted to the fun and have done every tour that I have ever offered!  It’s set up like a home or garden tour where tour-goers travel place to place receiving valuable coupons, gifts, goodies, promotions, tours, raffles, demonstrations and/or drawings plus VIP treatment at every featured location.

Best Kept Secret GoatAlthough I won’t tell you the names of the businesses ahead of time (that’s part of the fun secret!), I will tempt you with the types of places you’ll visit— unique home, garden & gift stores, blooming garden centers and a succulent plant farm, gourmet foods & sweet treat shops, a gourd farm, a spa boutique, art & artisan galleries, a goat dairy with lots of samples, a leather shop, natural & gluten free food stores, handmade craft stores, wine tasting at an historic inn, a one-of-a-kind fashion bus, an inspirational gift shop, clothing & jewelry boutiques, a mini horse farm, local favorite restaurants & brand new cafes, handcrafted soaps & body product shops, a flea market, antiques, vintage, upcycled & consignment shops, a few specialty shops and more!!  With such a wide diversity of businesses there truly is something for everyone.
