Lancaster County's Best Kept Secrets Tour

Set up like a home or garden tour, you’ll travel place to place, in your own vehicle—going where you want, when you want.  Your ticket is valid the entire time—do what you can in a day or take 9 days—it’s up to you. 

The Twelve Shops are concentrated in central Lancaster Co. (only 30 miles total) so you can easily visit all of them in a day if you choose. 

All tour shops are open at least Monday thru Saturday from 9 to 5 and Fri 9 to 7.  Restaurants, cafes & wineries will hold the hours posted in the guide booklet.    A few of the businesses will also offer Sunday hours (All hours are noted in your tour guide booklet).  ​
