Nestled in the countryside of northeastern Lancaster County, Adamstown is known as "Antiques Capital, USA" and is recognized as the premier year-round antiques destination in the Northeast. This shopping mecca is conveniently located just off Exit 286 of the Pennsylvania Turnpike and is home to thousands of antiques shops and dealers. Their treasures of the past range from fine furniture and historic postcards to redware and quirky collectibles. So whether you're just browsing the bargains or are seeking the ultimate find, you sure won't go home empty-handed!
After a long day of shopping, kick up your feet at a variety of local restaurants or Stoudt's Brewery. This favorite regional microbrewery has 20+ years of tradition under its belt and produces favorite local brews, plus a variety of festivals throughout the year.
