Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! If you live in the York area, we have some pretty kickass plans for you for the 14th!


Need for speed? You’re in luck! Just outside of York is the Harley-Davidson Vehicle Operations Factory. Various tours are available to the public, such as the Classic Factory Tour and the Steel Toe Tour. The Steel Toe Tour is an intimate experience that takes you behind-the-scenes with an in-depth look into the manufacturing process. You’ll be required to wear safety glasses, a vest, and steel toe protection. (Pro Tip: Tickets to the Classic Factory Tour are first-come first-serve, so try to get there early. Also, groups under nine people get free admission! Perfect for a couple or a family.)

For some quality entertainment, visit The Appell Center for the Performing Arts. Valentine’s Day weekend, there will be screenings of Oscar nominated short films, a live performance by the York Symphony Orchestra, and so much more.

Dive into your creative side at the York Historical Society Museum with the “Our Stories, Our Artists” event. In collaboration with CreativeYork, this event will help you get in touch with your artistic side in a guided painting session with Ellen Ehlenbeck. All supplies are provided along with some wine and cheese. Just make sure to save your spot by registering!

Located on North Beaver and Philadelphia Streets, the York Central Market is a great place to immerse yourself in the city and discover something new. With over 50 vendors in the market, there are countless options to explore. From homemade baked goods, to fresh produce and locally crafted beer, the Central Market is a hotspot for local cuisine.

Interested in something more laid back? Head to Laser Alleys Bowling Center! With 24-hour lanes, glow bowling, laser tag, a snack bar, and pub, there’s no better place to be! They even sell 60-cent wings on Thursdays and have Karaoke on Fridays!

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day in York, PA!
