There’s Nothing Small about the Coolest Small Town in America

It’s easy to see why Lititz was voted America’s Coolest Small Town in a 2013 survey. Nestled between Philadelphia and Harrisburg, it’s a vibrant community full of life and activity, even after more than 250 years.

Less than 10,000 people live in this Pennsylvania town, but it’s far from being a dull place to live. Unique shops, gorgeous parks and historic buildings are on nearly every corner. Visit the first pretzel bakery in the country and get a hands-on lesson at Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery. The bakery opened in 1861, and more than 150 years later it is still baking the best pretzels around.

For the chocoholics, the Wilbur Chocolate Museum and Factory Store is a must-see. Willy Wonka has nothing on this five-story chocolate factory that was built in 1913. Chocolate is still made by hand in the modern kitchen located in the museum.

One-of-a-kind merchandise sits on shelves next to name-brand items in the shops of Lititz. Shoppers are almost guaranteed to go with something they didn’t expect to buy when visiting.
Eateries in Lititz range from four-star restaurants and tea shops to breweries and bakeries. Bring a big appetite, because the restaurants in Lititz are known for being some of the best in the area.

With so much to see and do, it’s no surprise Lancaster new home builder Keystone Custom Homes is excited to be building in the Stonehenge Reserve community in Lititz. Homes are priced from the $300,000s. Bay windows, full front porches and side load garages are just a few of the options available at Stonehenge Reserve.

The community is near the Bent Creek Country Club, known for its great golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool and fitness center. Homeowners looking to head into Philadelphia will find state routes just minutes away. Students in Stonehenge Reserve attend schools in the prestigious Manheim Township.

Visit the model home today. From Route 30, take the Oregon Pike North and turn left into Stonehenge Reserve on Royer Drive. Turn left on Prescot Street, and the home is the last one on the right. It is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Friday from 1p.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
