For many people in Lancaster, summer is a wonderful time to enjoy the outdoors – and beautify your home. Here are a few ways you can delight in all Lancaster has to offer while finding new and fun ways to create a warm and wonderful home.

1. Pick up flowers and plants at Central Market

If you want a bit of greenery in your home, it may be a good idea to stop by Central Market in downtown Lancaster. There, you can pick up a fresh bouquet for your home and a few indoor plants as well. Ease your mind with something pleasant to look at, and provide a fresh, natural scent for your home. There are roughly four places where you can purchase stunning bouquets and small adorable succulents to fill your home with a fresh, lively feel. While there, you can pick up stunning quilts, and delicious goodies to savor as you browse and enjoy once you’re home.

2. Discover a vintage find on Queen Street

Queen Street has plenty of unique stores that offer authentic vintage finds. These rare items will add depth and interest to your home. Strolling down the street you will be sure to find a one-of-a-kind furniture piece, fun and kitschy gadget, or shabby-chic wall hanging. Take a chance and peruse Building Character or Mise en Place during a beautiful afternoon. You’ll never know what treasures you’ll find!

3. Enjoy a concert on Sunday at Long’s Park

Find inspiration from nature and music at the Summer concert series in Long’s Park. During the summer, Long’s Park offers concerts every Sunday evening with their own food trucks, activities, and live music. Stop by and delight in all the concert has to offer and you may find music, a recipe, or a craft you will simply have to have at home.

4. Indulge in some sweet treats to bring home from Downtown

There are many different restaurants downtown where you can purchase a variety of different foods.
