What is Open / Closed on Sundays?

I haven't been to Lancaster in many years, but I do remember that most things were closed on Sundays. Would like to know what is open / closed on Sundays so I can plan my trip accordingly.

Mostly concerned about the following being open on Sunday: restaurants, stores, Dutch Wonderland, Strasburg Railroad, etc.

It must have been a long time since you were here...

For most businesses & attractions, it is only the Amish & Mennonite owned establishments (and roadside stands) that are still closed on Sundays. In season, for nearly all other stores, restaurants & attractions, the only thing different about Sundays is they open a little later.

You can now even buy beer/wine/alcohol on Sundays between noon & 8pm.

Kitchen Kettle Village and lots of other stores in Intercourse, Bird-in-Hand and Strasburg will all be closed, too. The outlets will be open.

You are correct in thinking that things close early or are not open at all on Sundays here. However establishments that are frequented by people from out of town are usually open on sundays, especially during the warmer weather.

Restaurants will stop seating early on Sunday. In the off season I have seen some places stop seating as early as 6:00pm !!!! Dutch Wonderland is open, again I dont think they stay open as late, and the same goes for strasburg railroad. The outlets open at 12 and I think they close at 5.
