    Get creative, Lancaster

    Lancaster City is located in the heart of beautiful Lancaster County—a national destination for fine art, creative outlets, and family-owned businesses. In collaboration with Discover Lancaster, we invited Kendra Wolfe, Founder of Unique Lancaster Experiences, and her son Ivey along with their friends Brooke and Esiah to explore some of Lancaster’s most exciting arts & culture experiences.



    First Friday in Lancaster City


    First Friday embodies what we stand for as a community in Lancaster City. The doors are open and welcoming to every finger painter, novice, or art connoisseur. Many galleries boast family-friendly artistic activities for children while parents can explore the talent featured. It’s also an incredible time to learn about up-and-coming creative events that can be enjoyed locally as a family. View participating galleries and shops.

    Fulton Theatre


    The Fulton Theatre is a culturally enriching experience for all ages. The beautiful architecture and molding added to the wow factor right as you walk in, and the balcony seating transported us back 150 years. We loved that this historic treasure offers shows children can relate to as well. Shrek was the perfect first theatre experience for our toddlers. The cast interacted with them and kept them engaged the whole way through. Find the 2022/2023 season starting this fall.


    Old Mill Antique Store


    This family owned and operated antique shop in Strasburg is a wonderful opportunity to take your family on a stroll down memory lane. Our toddlers loved playing in the old antique vehicles outside and seeing all the vintage toys inside, and we appreciated the quality and preservation of their antique furniture and vintage pieces throughout the two floors. Find them at 215 Georgetown Road, Strasburg, and at

    Lancaster Mural Tour


    Everyone should take the self-guided mural tour around Lancaster. Discover Lancaster made it so easy to find them with their interactive map. We took part of the tour through Lancaster City from east to west and found colorful and vibrant wall murals that sparked our children’s curiosity. We loved that the murals were diverse and represented a variety of skill levels, demographics, and historical eras. Plan your tour with Discover Lancaster’s help.
