From theme parks to dinner theaters, there are plenty of activities and attractions to keep you busy throughout the weekend. Make this Memorial Day weekend something more than a long weekend, but rather a family journey to remember for years to come.

Your family will love the opportunity to take in a show at the world famous Sight and Sound Millennium Theatre. Give your family the treat of watching the biblical story of Adam and Eve unfold live on stage with In The Beginning. This amazing show features numerous theatrical effects to add to the experience such as running water and live animals on stage. Behold The Lamb is another popular show at the Sight and Sound Millennium Theatre, which takes you through the many miracles of Jesus with a vivid performance. These and other shows are playing regularly at the Sight and Sound Theatre, a massive theater with 2,000 seats and a 300 foot stage.

When you get hungry, you can continue your immersion into Dutch culture with a great Dutch-style meal at the family-owned and operated Good 'n Plenty restaurant. The Good 'n Plenty Restaurant serves up chef-prepared Amish Dutch dishes such as baked country sausage and shoo fly pie in a charming and recently remodeled farmhouse. Or choose to dine at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre, where you can enjoy Broadway-style shows such as High School Musical and Singin' In The Rain, while you dine on delicious Dutch menu options.

Spend some time on your extended holiday weekend learning about the Amish lifestyle with the Amish Experience Theater and Amish Homestead Tour. This tour gives you a glimpse into the simpler lifestyle and culture of the Amish by letting you visit the home of an Amish family, as well as gives you the opportunity to catch a showing of "Jacob's Choice" at the F/X Theater. You can also learn more about the Amish lifestyle through a visit to the Mennonite Tabernacle and Information Center. This center features a three screen theater with educational films on the Amish, a bookstore filled with books on the Amish culture, and a beautiful reproduction of the Old Testament tabernacle.

It may be Memorial Day weekend, but it's Christmas year-round at the National Christmas Center Family Attraction and Museum. This museum is a family favorite, telling the original story of Christmas through exhibits, as well as showing what Christmases past were like. This 20,000 square foot facility also looks forward to consider that Christmas in the future may look like.

Give your family more than just a long weekend at home this Memorial Day weekend. Treat them to an experience that will love with them for many years to come with a visit to Lancaster!

The Amish Experience Theater and Country Homestead Tour Combo - Bird-in-Hand, PA
Loved everything about this amish experience!The film,jacobs choice,gave an inside look into the life of an amish family & the human decisions that they are faced with.It also gave a historical back round ,which was very interesting.The film was shown in a barn setting,which also added to the experience.The film was then followed by a guided tour of the actual homestead.The tour guide was very informative.I suggest this experience to anyone!It really makes you think about the world we live in.There was also a fantastic gift shop on the premises,along with a couple amish-run stores.We also ate at the restaurant on the premises.If you decide to eat there,choose the family style sit down meal over choosing the menu.You'll be able to try all the varieties of food and will meet some really interesting people.We ended up with some new friends.There is also a buggy ride available on the premises.That was also a worthwhile trip.It took you right onto an amish farm.Let's me just put it this way,we were thinking we would be done with this experience in a couple hours.Well,we were there for 6 hours!We don't regret a thing!

The Amish Experience Theater & Country Homestead Combo Tour
This tour was very enjoyable and the movie was really educational. I knew that amish teens could go out in the world, but not for that long. The only way it would have been better is that if the homestead tour had been of an actual amish home and school. It was really nice, too, that you could catch a buggy tour right down the street and our guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely go here again!

The entire tour was very educational. Our tour guide was great! Those straight back bench seats in the theater gotta go! You are sitting on a downward angle with no place for your body to go. I felt very uncomfortable!
