Make reservations at The Left Bank Restaurant & Bar. Named after the famed Parisian restaurant on the Seine River, the Left Bank features a wide variety of international cuisine and an extensive martini list.

Evening (based on schedule availability) 
Reserve tickets before your visit for a performance at the Appell Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown York. You'll be amazed at the big names performing Broadway-style shows, comedy and live music.

Day 2

Start your day with a hearty breakfast at Central Market House. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, you'll find vendors selling everything from burritos and bakery items to fresh meats and veggies!

Tour and learn at the Colonial Complex where York's Colonial Court House has been reconstructed next to the Heritage Rail Trail and near the preserved 1741 Plough Tavern, General Gates House and Bobb Log House for an immersion into what life was like during the Colonial era.

Depart for Hanover Junction on a faithful replica of a Civil War-era train at Northern Central Railway. Journey along the York County Heritage Rail Trail with period re-enactors and enjoy historical programming as you retrace Abraham Lincoln's journey to make his Gettysburg Address.

Dine in the Tasting Room of Wyndridge Farm, a craft beverage and special events venue radiating rustic elegance set amid beautiful, rolling southern York County countryside. Sample Wyndridge's craft beer, soda, wine and specialty Crafty Cider.

Day 3

Start your Sunday experience along the Susquehanna River with brunch at the John Wright Restaurant in Wrightsville featuring a breathtaking view of the point where Confederate forces would go no farther in the Civil War. Equally impressive is the food sourced locally for the freshest ingredients.

Make a reservation for a kayak rental at Shank's Mare Outfitters, your one-stop shop for gear, trips and know-how. Paddle at your leisure among the yachts and other craft that also ply the waters of Lake Clarke -- a perfect introduction to the river corridor.
