Ready to think about finding your perfect home in Lancaster? If you are curious about homes that are currently on the market, our website is a great spot to start your search!
Haven’t we been spoiled with these low-80s temps? If you want to make the most out of Lancaster’s beautiful weather, look no further than tubing down the Pequea Creek at Sickman’s Mill!
Located just a few miles from downtown Lancaster, Sickman’s Mill offers you the ultimate summer experience. The tubing takes about 2 hours round trip, but that time will fly as you float past the eagles, hawks, deer and many other animals. You’ll finish at the creek and be picked up and shuttled back to Sickman’s Mill, where you have even more entertainment waiting for you!!!
New this year – thanks to the new owners – is Jimmy’s Place. This is the summer hang out spot located at Sickman’s Mill, where you can kick back and relax with a beer or a drink. They have live music and special events posted on their calendar for the rest of summer. It’s a perfect treat for after your float, or make it an adventure in itself! You don’t need to go tubing to enjoy Jimmy’s Place…everyone is welcome. 🙂
Typical hours are 10am-5pm, but do you work full time until 5? The perfect solution to making sure you can hit the creek is the extended float and sunset cruise every Wednesday evening. Listen to live music, enjoy a drink at Jimmy’s, bring s’mores and get ready for a perfect summer night.
If you’ve never been tubing before, it might be a good idea to sign up for a Guided Tubing Tour. This 4-hour float with an experienced tour guide is a mix between gentle floating and a couple river rapids, all while soaking up the beautiful Lancaster County countryside. On the other hand, if you love tubing and know you want to go more than once, consider purchasing a season pass.
There is something for all levels at Sickman’s Mill! Visit https://outfitters.sickmansmill.com/ for ticket information and pricing. Remember – it is cash only.
This is another activity my family loved doing while growing up. Even my daughter, who is not a fan of the outdoors, loves going to Sickman’s Mill for a float. Your family is sure to love it, too. Tubing is a great mix between relaxing and exploring the outdoors. Hop on an inflatable tube, strap on to your friends, and enjoy your float under the beautiful green canopy of trees!
