If you are choosing to not go home for Spring Break (or you cannot go home due to student teaching, internships or a job) then it’s important for you to realize that there are still options for you to do something fun and interesting. The only issue you might run into is that you will need to work these attractions around your schedule and the weather. So far though the weather for Spring Break in Lancaster seems to be alright but definitely not awesome.
