Bring the Family | Fall 2022

You're always the perfect age to enjoy Lancaster.

As leaves begin to change and cozy wardrobe staples are slowly reemerging, there are still plenty of beautiful days left in the year for adventuring. It’s time to take a stroll and experience the culture that abounds in Lancaster City—we’re featuring five fall stops that you can enjoy with the whole family.

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 opportunities to live and thrive in community because creating a meaningful future never ends.


Looking for a few ways to spend crisp autumn days with the family? Garden Spot Village team member Colleen Musselman and her husband Mark took their grandchildren to explore five spots you can add to your list for family fun.
