Rocky Ridge Park

My wife and I take our two kids to the Rocky Ridge Park Christmas Light Display every year.
They put on an impressive display of lights. Admission is reasonable and you can take the tour as many times as you want. It is outdoors so dress appropriately. Refreshments are available and bring your camera because Santa is there and the kids can sit on his lap if they wish.
Depending on your pace, the entire display will probably take around 30 minutes to complete.

Holidays in York PA

The holidays are fast approaching. There are a lot of activities in the York area. A Christmas parade will follow market Street in downtown York. One of the most popular is the Christmas spectacular at Rocky Ridge Park. A short drive away is the Christmas in Hershey at Hershey Park. You can go during the day or night and see the many lights and some of the attractions are open. You can also take the chocolate tour ride. News Years Eve will at the new York Revolution Stadium will usher in the new year with First Night York. More later.

It is coming up on Thanksgiving quickly here in York PA. New homes sales and existing home sale inventory continues to rise. Currently there is an avarage of 11 month supply. Big difference from last year at this time! Buyers here in York County seem to be a little reluctant to make a home buying decision. I think that home Sellers are ready and willing to try to negotiate a reasonable house offer with a good solid buyer. (What I mean is that a buyer with good credit and able to close on a house in a short period of time along with a reasonable house inspection.) Sellers of homes in York, Shrewsbury, Stewartstown, New Freedom, Red Lion, Dallastown, Dover or just about anywhere in York County PA are willing to listen to buyers offers.
Mortgage interest rates are low and now is the time to buy!
