    Cold Weather, No Problem!

    Baby, it’s cold outside. Really. Really. Reaalllllllly cold. But don’t let the dropping temperatures keep you at home. Bundle up and see all that Lancaster has to offer this Winter.



    A Brisk Morning:

    There’s nothing like cold winter air to wake you up. Get up early and hit Central Market. Treat yourself with a warm beverage as a reward for braving the elements + stock up on healthy fresh food to help you start off the new year on the right foot.





    Bundle Up for Brunch:

    Hungry? Lancaster has plenty of great options for brunch, including Commonwealth on Queen, Commonwealth Kitchen & Cafe, Rachel’s Cafe and Creperie, and Annie Bailey’s.

Plus, check out the upcoming Creatively Lancaster Makers Markets on January 13 and February 2 for an awesome array of goods created by local makers.
