    Bring the Family | Spring 2022

    Spring has arrived! And Lancaster is ready to help you and your family create new memories this season.


    One of the most beautiful things about our city is its bustling small business and arts community, which gives locals and visitors alike an endless number of places to cross off their Lancaster bucket list. With so much to see and do, it’s time to gather your family and friends of all ages to discover some must-visit spots.


    Tina Parks, a future resident of Garden Spot Village, and her granddaughter Gwen, went on a tour of five spots that are sure to be fun for the whole family. We hope you’ll wake up on a sunny Saturday morning when that spring feeling is in the air and use this guide to plan a day of adventures.


    Bring the Family is a special section sponsored by our friends at Garden Spot Village, who are passionate about living life to the fullest. They believe in offering their residents opportunities to live and thrive in community because creating a meaningful future never ends.
