From fresh baked goods to a breathtaking show, this is one trip you do not want to miss in the upcoming year.
We were back on the road with a wonderful group to Lancaster, PA for a fun filled two days! We started our trip at the Kitchen Kettle Village where you will find anything from bakery goods to gifts, featuring 40 distinct merchants offering everything from locally-made art, pottery and PA Dutch quilts to name-brand favorites like Brighton, PANDORA Jewelry, UGG and Minnetonka moccasins. Kitchen Kettle was all decked out for the fall, it was so gorgeous! After spending a few hours, we checked in at our beautiful hotel, Eden Resort and Suites. We saw “Million Dollar Quartet” at the Dutch Apple Dinner Theatre later that night after we enjoyed our dinner, The performers were phenomenal! Everyone raved about them. The Dinner Theatre had a buffet with the best carved brisket which melted in your mouth, they had anything from chicken, fish or baked veggie lasagna, an option for everyone! For dessert they had our Escort, Crystals favorite, pecan pie!!! They also had different pies and ice cream. (our driver, Kevin’s favorite)
On Wednesday, we woke up bright and early to a beautiful day! After enjoying our breakfast at the Resort we headed over to an an Amish Bakery and Riehl’s Quilt Shop, boy was this a treat! The quilts were gorgeous. We saw cows, horses, goats and even got to see puppies! It was really hard not wanting to bring one home on the bus! The Amish are so skilled, they make beautiful items and the baked goods were awesome. Next, we made our way to the feature of the trip, the play of Queen Esther at the Sight and Sound Theatre. There are really no words that can describe the performance we saw. It was breathtaking. “QUEEN ESTHER” set in the opulent yet perilous Persian Empire, QUEEN ESTHER is a captivating tale of beauty and bravery. Experience one of the most riveting Bible stories of the Old Testament as it comes to life with magnificent sets, special effects and live animals in this brand-new, original stage production!”
