Lancaster, Catacombs, and Candies

$159.00

Cost includes transportation, guided tours, lunch, snack and tips. 

We will start the day with a guided Historic Lancaster walking tour. We’ll discover Lancaster’s rich history while marveling at the well-preserved architecture, including one of the oldest public markets in the United States, which was established in 1730. Next, we will make our way to Bube’s Brewery, which dates back to 1803 and was built by a German immigrant named Alois Bube. At that time, Lancaster County was known as the “Munich of the New World” due to its thriving beer industry. On a guided tour, we will explore this historic brewery, which was built over catacombs (29 steps to get there) and stone-lined caves that were used to hide their products during Prohibition. After our tour, we will have a delicious buffet lunch in one of Bube’s three restaurants. The final stop in our day will be at Miesse Candies, where we will sample chocolates and caramels while we take a tour of the production facility and learn how these yummy treats are made.
