Rainy Day Activities

Indoor WaterPark Kalahari resort

An old timey trip to the past awaits you in south eastern Huntingdon County at the Rockhill Trolley Museum. Ride the rails in restored antique trolleys like your grandparents did. For a truly unique experience, try the “Run-A-Trolley” program, where you’ll learn to operate an authentic, antique electric trolley car. You’ll get two hours of one-on-one guidance with an experienced trainer before taking the controls!

Pick Your Own

Blue Berries from Brown's Orchards

Spend a beautiful spring day with your family picking the most delicious fruit you’ve ever tasted at Brown’s Orchards & Farm Markets in York County. The pick-your-own season starts with strawberries in May, while summer brings blueberries and peaches before the apples of fall arrive. After leaving the orchards behind, you’ll find plenty of other fresh produce inside the market. You can even enjoy a tasty lunch or coffee at the Brown Bean Café.

Mud Sales

Named for the state of the thawing ground in late winter and early spring, Mud Sales are a Lancaster County original, referring to annual auctions/sales at a number of local fire companies. It’s no wonder they’re called a “mud sale,” since so many Amish in attendance are barefoot, squishing through the mud on a warm spring day as thousands of shoppers trod through to bid on the local treasures.
