One of the most endearing attributes of Lancaster County is the beauty of the scenery as it evolves with each changing season. Visitors often develop a deep appreciation for the changing seasons of southern Pennsylvania, which leave a picturesque memory for them to cherish forever.
There is nothing more inspiring than a springtime in Lancaster County. Relax and enjoy the beautiful days. With daily temperatures in April averaging 56 degrees, slide on a jacket while watching thousands of Canadian geese, snow geese, and swans flock to the fertile fields. Enjoy the serenity of newborn lambs, calves, and foals grazing on the lush green pastures while wildflowers adorn the winding country roads. Pennsylvania Dutch Country is an extraordinary explosion of life and color during this refreshing time of the year.
You've never seen just how green the color green can be until you've visited Lancaster County in the summertime. With temperatures averaging 82 degrees, a light jacket for evenings is all you need worry about when packing for your vacation to the Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Whether you're hiking scenic river trails, exploring an Amish farm, riding a speeding roller coaster, or discovering one of the many historic sites, you'll find the natural beauty of Lancaster County to be breathtaking during the beautiful summer season.
As the temperatures begin to drop and the days become shorter, Lancaster County begins to transform itself from lush green meadows and woodlands to fiery oranges, yellow, and reds. Temperatures during this time of year only climb to around 63 degrees during the day and can drop to a frosty 32 degrees at night. During this time of year, Amish farmers are busy harvesting their bountiful crops, and visitors are busy enjoying the famous, fresh produce at farmer's markets, roadside stands, and many local restaurants.
Snow-covered farms, horse-drawn sleigh rides, steaming mugs of mulled cider, and blazing fireplaces...this is Lancaster County in the wintertime. Be sure to dress warmly when you venture out to the many holiday festivities or shops, because the average daily temperature is only 35 degrees. A coat, hat, gloves, and a joyful holiday spirit are the essentials when visiting during this season.
