Summer is the season when we feel like having fun, getting together, and exploring various events and attractions.

Still, everyday life can get in the way of us making big plans for great adventures, and oftentimes we end up feeling like we can’t escape. While that may be true for some adventures in a far away land, it doesn’t have to be true when it comes to a re-energizing mini vacation.

And what’s more fun than a weekend getaway to avoid the routines of our lives?

Whether you’re traveling to charming Lancaster County or you’re a local looking for a little bit of magic for your family this August – find it right here at one of the best hotels in Lancaster PA to make your visit or weekend gateway an amazing experience.

Spend your weekend away at a family friendly hotel that is more than just a room with beds – the Fulton Steamboat Inn is sure to make you and your kids happy.
