Things to do in and Around Lancaster County

The heart of PA Dutch Country, Lancaster County is filled with farms, food and fun for all ages. Traveling, retreating, recreation, shopping and so many more activities somehow seem more enjoyable in the relaxed, hospitable and family-friendly atmosphere of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Lancaster is an hour from Philadelphia and lies between New York City and Washington, DC, a few hours to the north and south respectively. More information on various attractions is avaliable at: www.padutchcountry.com

Millersville
The Borough of Millersville is located outside the southwest corner of Lancaster City and just 5 minutes south of US route 30. Millersville is 40 minutes from York PA (our nation's first capital), about an hour from Gettysburg to the west and an hour from Philadelphia to the east, 40 minutes from Harrisburg (PA's capital city), and 40 minutes from Hershey Park. Several museums are a few minutes away, as well as outlet stores, malls, Fulton Opera House, Sight and Sound Theater, Strasburg Railroad and the heart of Amish Country. We are also within walking distance of Millersville University (MU) campus, a few miles from the campus of Franklin and Marshall College, minutes from Lancaster Bible College and minutes from Stevens School of Technology.

Blue Rock B&B is 3.5 miles southwest of the Lancaster City square (site of the Lancaster County Convention Center). We are uniquely situated across the street from farm land, yet within walking distance of many conveniences. The community park is 1/2 block down the street. A supermarket is next to the park with two convenience stores across from the park entrance. Eight doors down is a wonderful restaurant and within 4 blocks are four pizza shops, 3 cafes, a post office, beauty salon, barber shop, laundry mat, 3 banks, 2 drug stores and other small shops. The MU campus is a pleasant walk as well and just beyond the campus is a golf course and farmers market. A large movie theater is about 2.5 miles away in Lancaster. The city bus route passes within one block of our location. Whether by foot, car or bus, your options for places to go and things to do are limitless.

By letting us know at reservation time, we can arrange for you a visit with an Amish family on their farm nearby. A tour(s) of Lancaster County with a personal tour guide can also be arranged.

Also available are Retreats/ Pastoral Counseling and massage therapy.

We also recommend Refreshing Mountain Retreats & Adventure Center .
