  • Historic Lititz Springs Park

    The Lititz Springs Park is a large PRIVATELY OWNED Park that is free and open to the public. Take a minute to goto their webpage - it really has an interesting history. A great place to picnic or let the kids run. There are tons of ducks here and duck food machines. Surprisingly the duck poop isnt too bad! Walk the whole way to the back of the park...

  • PARKVIEW HOTEL - A Nice Watering Hole

    This old fashioned bar is a great place to have a cold beer. It even has the original pressed tin ceiling. It no longer offers public rooms and all of its renters are males (supposedly it only has one bathroom upstairs). If your wife or girlfriend has dragged you along to Lititz so she can shop in its many little fancy stores and boutiques, tell...

Lititz Restaurants

  • Swiss Gold Rush Victim Sutter

    John Sutter was born in Switzerland and in 1834, fleeing creditors in Europe, arrived in New York. In time, he headed west and sailed up the Sacramento River to begin a settlement. By 1848, work was being done on a mill when some gold flakes were spotted in the water. Soon Gold Rush fever struck and Sutter’s land was overrun. Because of his need to...

    Dining here was a frustrating experience for a vegetarian. Nothing but horrid chain places like Subway or bars serving meat. There might be some nice restaurants here but we never found them during our several visits.

  • Lancaster County's Best

    Arguably, the best restaurant in Lancaster County. It is also the most expensive restaurant in Lancaster County. If you like appetizers and deserts and drinks with your meal, be prepared to spend about $100 per person. The restaurant has a variety of rooms. The main dining room features a fireplace, which, in winter, adds to the cozy, comfortable...

Lititz Off The Beaten Path

  • cantilever barn

    curiously nobody converts these beached barns into houses or offices. They just sit at the entrance to new suburban cul de sacs.

  • HIDEAWAY BAR - Duck As You Enter!

    Probably the funkiest of several Lititz bars and taverns. This is one place that the rich, famous and often snotty touristy shoppers will never be found! Located just a few blocks from the shopping district this bar is in the basement of a building and is definitely a locals hangout. No food over the winter so eat before you get here but the beer...

  • Watch Airplanes Take Off Over Your Head!

    For about a hundred years, Moravian church members were the only people permitted to live in the town. A Brothers’ House and Sisters’ House were erected for the unmarried men and women, although they did not live communally. It was not until 1855 that non-Moravians were allowed to own their own houses.
