Lancaster is the perfect destination for a Christmas vacation. With the rolling countryside often blanketed with fluffy, white snow this time of year, and picturesque farmhouses interspersed with numerous charming small towns, the scene is set for a spectacular holiday. There are some special events that are held in the area each year, including holiday productions at the famous Sight and Sound Millennium Theatre, holiday shows at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater, and the Wayne Christmas Tree Lighting event.




The spirit of Christmas lives throughout the year at the famous National Christmas Center in Lancaster. The National Christmas Center is a year-round attraction, and is just perfect for a holiday vacation in December, a couple's retreat in the warmer months, or any other vacation plans you have in mind. This popular attraction brings in thousands of visitors each year. Spanning across 20,000 square feet, this festive attraction explores the history and traditions of Christmas across the centuries. Exhibits feature life-sized wax replicas and beautifully accurate sets that explore famous Christmas scenes. Some of the exhibits include the first Christmas, Virginia's famous letter to Santa Claus, a 1950s style Christmas, Santa's work shop and reindeer barn, and Woolworth's Five and Dime Christmas. There are other exhibits that explore the cultures of various countries around the world as they celebrate the holiday, a toy land exhibit with a train, and others. As you walk from exhibit to exhibit with your special someone or with your whole family, you will be filled with the warmth of the holiday season.




Altogether, there are fifteen permanent galleries as well as several temporary exhibits that are displayed regularly, too. You can lose yourself in the spirit of Christmas here, and it is the perfect place to spend a few hours on your holiday vacation or any other time of year. Be sure to stop by the gift shop when you visit the National Christmas Center. The gift shop is filled with holiday-themed collectibles, ornaments, and more that make wonderful additions to your home holiday decor and are also excellent gifts for your friends and family, too.

Just saw the sound of music yesterday--beautiful production! The food is o.K, but the show is the reason for being there. Some drinks are not included in the ticket price, and the soup seemed to be an add-on, which i wasn't thrilled about. For the bigger tables it is family style and a bit crowded. It is better to sit in the fron of each section (2 rows per section). Looked like a lot of bus groups occupied the front two sections. Back row seats aren't too bad. For the show--maria was outstanding. I've seen this production many times, and she is one of the bets maria's i've seen. Great presence and great voice. The children are wonderful--liesel was great, and the little blonde gretl was a joy to watch. Mother abbess was very, very good and had a very powerful voice. Ducth apple has picked a great show and produced a wonderful production. Many thanks!
