It is said that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.  We started the month by marching into Lancaster with snow.  By the end of March, the flowers will all be blooming and the weather will be perfect for evenings in the swing.  But, what to do in the meantime?  Well, it’s Lancaster County and there is no shortage of fun things to do, some free, some not.

Enjoy Nature:Lake with Snow Geese and bare trees

Starting March 1 – the snow geese are back at Middle Creek.  Take a camera and tripod and capture some amazing photos.  Dress warm, because the wind can really blow through here!  There are also some lovely paths to hike (literally marching into Lancaster)  while trying to find the best view of the snow geese.

Take a backroads bike tour with Intercourse Bikeworks

Spend a day at Longwood Gardens.  The meadows are lovely and filled with hiking paths for your enjoyment.  But, the orchids in the conservatory will knock your socks off!

Have a Great Meal:

March 4 – 10th – it’s Restaurant week in downtown Lancaster.  Now before you get worried about going into the ‘big city,’ know that downtown is 11 miles from Carriage Corner and Restaurant Week is the best time to check out an interesting restaurant for a fixed price.

March 5 – Fasnachts Day – head out to Roots Country Market and grab your Fasnachts from Mary Jane

March 15 – 17 Annie Bailey’s Irish Public House Straight from Annie’s website:  Everyone’s favorite holiday is upon us! And if celebrating at Downtown Lancaster’s favorite authentic Irish pub isn’t alluring enough, then perhaps an ENTIRE WEEKEND filled with loads of live music, Irish dancing, festive food, delicious drink & hanging on the deck (weather permitting!) will all help to sway you in the right direction… Sláinte!
