Lititz Itineraries | Downtown Lititz

Family Fun Itinerary

Bringing along young family members? Lititz has so many awesome options for the littlest members of your crew! Here’s what we like to do:

Start the day off with a special twist: Visit Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery and learn about America’s first commercial pretzel bakery. Book a 25-minute tour and you’ll even learn how to twist a pretzel!

After Julius Sturgis, cross the street and soak up all the beauty of Lititz’s Church Square. This leafy green location is great for photo ops!

Then, head back across the street for a visit to the Lititz Museum and gift shop. You can learn all about Lititz’s past, including our Revolutionary War hospital and how we began as a closed Moravian Community. Passionate history buffs can even book a Main Street walking tour with the amazing folks at the Lititz Historical Foundation and take a deep dive into a much fuller telling of our history.

Next, keep heading west on Main Street (this is all an easy walk for most kiddos). Once. you cross over Cedar Street, you’ll find a place local kids love – Candy*ology. This candy store offers all the trendiest candies of today and delivers a nod back in time with a selection of retro candies. So. Much. Fun!

Also tons of fun? A trip to Bunyaad Marketplace! This Main Street treasure wows parents along with kids. Adults, you’ll be drawn to the awe-inspiring collection of hand-knotted, Fair Trade rugs and colorful collection of accessories. Thanks to the time your kiddos will spend in the rug tunnels, you’ll have plenty of time to explore all the offerings. “Rug tunnels?” you ask. Allow us to explain! The folks at Bunyaad encourage their smallest guests to sport a special headlamp and crawl through a fun maze of rug tunnels. When they emerge on the other side of the store, your young adventurers will be in the right place to meet all the characters from the String Doll Gang – an adorable crew of dolls made almost entirely from string, bearing messages of good fortune. Ask your kiddo which doll speaks most to them!

Other shops kids love: Aaron’s Books, Heavenly Soaps and Scents for super soft clothing and stuffed friends, and Wilbur Chocolate on North Broad Street.

Hungry families can fill their bellies at a whole list of great restaurants, including Tomato Pie CafeChilangos, and, for parents in need of a pint, Appalachian Brewing Company and The Bulls Head Public House.

Of course no trip to Lititz is complete without feeding our famous ducks. Lititz Springs Park is a beautiful place to run off some steam, giggle at feathered friends, and take your turn on the swings!

Need one last treat before heading home? Just across from the park, on Kleine Lane, is Greco’s Italian Ices and Homemade Ice Cream – sure to make every member of the family smile!
