Best Kept Secrets Tour

A Shopping / Food and Fun Adventure

Lancaster County's

Twelve Shops of Christmas Tour

  Dec 5 thru 13

A unique shopping adventure--featuring 12 wonderfully festive, off-the-beaten-path shops.  Set up like a home or garden tour you will travel place to place, in your own vehicle, enjoying the amazing holiday decorations, unusual gift ideas, valuable coupons, door prizes, games, gifts, refreshments and Christmas spirit the businesses have planned for you.

The stores are located in the towns of New Holland, Stevens, Denver, Adamstown, and Ephrata.  The total mileage from #1 to #12 is approx. 34 miles and total driving time is 1 hour. 

Your ticket is valid the entire time—take the tour for a day or 9 days—it’s up to you.   Although we won't tell you the names of the businesses ahead of time (that's part of the fun secret!), we will tell you the types of places you'll find:  unusual home, garden and gift stores in huge barns, on a family farm, in a restored carriage house or tucked in a replica Bavarian Village, an incredible orchard in a gorgeous wooded setting, vintage, upcycled and antique shops, a floral shop with holiday wreaths and arrangements, a sweet shop, a handmade craft show in a country home, a local favorite café and more!  

Play our Christmas tree stamping game and be entered to win one of 2 $325 shopping sprees—just in time for Christmas!  What a jolly way to explore the county!

Tickets are $8 each.  Help spread the warmth of the season--$1 per ticket will be donated to the EASS Fuel Assistance Program.  Your ticket is a booklet which contains a listing and description of each store, a map to get you around, coupons from every business and your entry form for the tree stamping game.
