1st Day: Upon arrival in Lancaster, Pennsylvania we will check into our home for the next two nights. Tonight, enjoy a show at the American Music Theatre. Playing at this time is Home for the Holidays. The show is sure to be the highlight of your holiday season. It will warm your heart and touch your soul with world-class entertainment and sentimental tributes to the true meaning of Christmas.
2nd Day: This morning, we will step back in time with a visit to Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum, considered by many to be the “best kept secret in Pennsylvania.” Founded by brothers Henry and George Landis, it is the largest “living history” village in the country dedicated to the total preservation of early Pennsylvania German/Dutch life. The authentic crossroads village includes historic buildings with costumed guide interpretation, a vast collection of historic agricultural equipment, and ongoing farming based on 1700’s and 1800’s practices and traditions, using historic breeds of animals and crops authentic to the period. Through its Heirloom Seed Project, Landis Valley preserves over 240 varieties of seeds—the same types of seeds that were in the pockets of the first Pennsylvania German settlers. This afternoon we will visit the Kitchen Kettle Village, with over thirty shops and restaurants jammed full of Lancaster’s simple pleasures. We’ll also go to a Farmer’s Market (if open). Tonight, an Amish Feast is included. After dinner we will go to the Sight & Sound Theatre to see David. Master Poet. Fearless Warrior. Anointed King. After unprecedented victories lead to devastating failures, this passionate warrior will face the biggest battle of all: the one within himself. Experience one of the most legendary Bible stories as it comes to life in this brand-new stage production from Sight & Sound Theatres. (CB, D)

Follow the cocoa beans on a journey from the tropical rainforest to the SWEETEST PLACE ON EARTH – Hershey, Pennsylvania!
