After our H-D Tour, we’ll stop by the York City Pretzel Company. Downtown York’s newest attraction, York City’s first craft pretzel bakery is now open. During our tour, learn how to twist a Bavarian pretzel and take one with you!
We’ll then depart for Glenrock Mill where we Steam into History aboard the replica train that Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg address. The William H. Simpson #17 is a faithful, slow moving replica of the Civil War steam locomotive that carried Abraham Lincoln to deliver his now famous Gettysburg Address. These same tracks carried Lincoln’s funeral train two years later. This narrated train ride will take us back to Lincoln’s era!
Our last experience of today is The Sunrise Soap Company offers a skin-healthy alternative to many of the harsh soaps found on store shelves. Sunrise soaps are made in small batches, contain high quality oils (which are extremely beneficial to the skin, providing moisture) and produce a wonderful lather. Soaps are made using pure vegetable, coconut and olive oils, shea butter, cocoa butter, & castor oil – offering a wide – and sometimes wild – selection of fragrances to please everyone. The energetic, 45-minute demonstration will show you how these natural oils are used to make specialty soaps and lotions.
After freshening up at the Wyndham Garden York, dinner will be at the Wyndridge Farm. Here you’ll find a historic American farm that contains picturesque views of green fields and sweet-smelling orchards. Rustic but elegant, Wyndridge has the heart of a historic Pennsylvania farm … with a soul that celebrates life. Wyndridge Farm’s iconic mark is a scarf-wearing fox. The fox is known as an elegant, sly and crafty animal, one that visits the farm frequently for a little “fun.” This essence captures the spirit that is Wyndridge Farm. They celebrate the bounty of the land with a belief that nature should shape the menu. This is an estate farm, supporting and buying from local farmers to give you the very best. (Breakfast & Dinner)
