  1. I was surprised to come across this listing in Washingtonian, Lititz, Pennsylvania How to improve on a choreographed-to-music fireworks extravaganza? Light up a creek flowing below the pyrotechnics with 5,000-plus candles. This Lancaster County borough’s “Fairyland of Candles”—borrowed from a Moravian Christmas tradition—has been a staple of Independence Day here since 1843. Arrive July 3 for the 6:30 pm parade, live entertainment, and dance party in Lititz Springs Park. Stay for the July 4 celebration, with concerts, a parade of infants and tots, and the Queen of the Candles Pageant. Distance from DC: Three hours; lititz4thofjuly.com. Distance from Philadelphia: Two hours It's a bit of a haul, but Lititz is a charming getaway from the District. There are two wonderful places I may suggest checking in for the long holiday weekend. General Sutter Inn is at the top of my rec's conveniently located on Main St Lititz. The other would be Hotel Rock Lititz. The latter is a short drive away from downtown Lititz, but provides a lively place to stay. As far as food and bev rec's , one should not miss visiting restaurant and taproom at Rooster St Butcher, and afterwards walk down the street to try Stoll & Wolfe Distillery. PA is infamous for their factory tours, and Julius Sturgis Pretzel does not disappoint. This place is known to be the first commercial pretzel bakery in America. Main St Lititz is dotted with several locally operated businesses ranging from book stores, tea shop, sweets shop, candy stores, as well as vintage stops. There is something for just about everyone to enjoy while visiting Lititz.
  2. As I am learning, and digging in deep in to the folklore of the Pennsylvania Dutch, I recently learned of the mud sale. I have yet to go to one, but am fascinated by this group of humans and their semi colonial ways. In the short time I have spent in Lancaster, I have become rather smitten with it. There is so much to learn, as well as explore in Lancaster. With each interaction I have with both locals, as well as transplants, it all creates a rather vibrant quilt . There are spots that I have wandered into that I am hesitant on sharing for fear it may lose its local charm and be overpopulated with tourists. Although at the same time I want to shout from the rooftop that Lancaster is filled with art, culture, and dining spots that are worthy of media accolades. I suppose while learning about the locals, I will learn what to share, and when to keep my lips sealed. After all the best kept secrets of any city are best discovered on your own,or perhaps with a hint of print. Stay curious, kat
  3. A couple blocks away from the Millenium Hilton and the 9/11 rebuild and memorial is a great market and cafe called the Amish Market. Why the name? No idea. It is really like a small Whole Foods. They have groceries and gourmet items and a huge hot bar, salad bar, dessert and pastry section, wood burning grill that makes pizzas and sandwiches, taco and burrito station, etc, etc. This is a great quick stop for breakfast or lunch, although they are open for dinner too. We grabbed a bunch of stuff off the hot and cold bars after a long long shopping spree at Century 21. Everything was fresh and nicely prepared, they had a great selection of drinks and desserts and a nice little area with tables to sit at. Anyway if you are staying nearby, this is a great little place to know about for a quick stop.
  4. Dutch Eating Place in Reading Terminal Market This Amish-run, counter-seating spot is probably the best place to grab breakfast in Philly. Oh, I love my diners (Little Pete's), but the food here can not be beat-nor the price. I enjoyed fresh orange juice along with an egg platter that included excellent scrapple; crisp on the outside and creamy cornmeal inside. Toasted rye bread was slathered with their homemade butter. Mr. MV ordered blueberry pancakes-3 large cakes that overflowed the plate. Service was incredibly friendly and the prices were very reasonable. Get there early on Sat. or be prepared to wait in line for a seat. DEP opens at 8am on Sat, closed Sun.
