Although some tourist attractions and shops close at 6 p.m., many theaters, restaurants, and shops stay open late into the evening. The first Friday of every month is one of the best times to experience Downtown Lancaster, and shops extend their hours to 9 p.m. There are a number of businesses that are regularly open late, and it’s possible to see musical or dramatic shows at night, eat out late, and see Lancaster’s own baseball team, the Lancaster Barnstormers play at Clipper Magazine Stadium.

Of course, one of the great features of Lancaster County at night is the lack of lights. If you head outside the city limits, you can spend the night looking up at the stars and marveling at the beauty of the night. Sometimes getting away from the city for a few days is just what you need to rest up!
