Local Highlight: Lancaster Science Factory, PA

The Lancaster Science Factory is a fun place to be if you're a curious kid. This spot, located right outside Lancaster City, is a hands-on, interactive center for children, and ideal for those ranging from Pre-K to 8th grade. I recently visited the science center with my own kids, and they absolutely loved it. After almost 3 hours in the place they were still sad we had to leave.

Small Business Spotlight: Oola Bowls in Lancaster, PA

If you haven't tried Oola Bowls in Lancaster, PA, you're in for a treat. This place, with a handful of locations, offers fresh acai bowls, pitaya bowls, and smoothies. I recently went to their main location at Foxshire Plaza along Fruitville Pike for the first time. It's a cool and casual spot to dine at. I ordered their Holy Cacao!, a treat made with an organic acai base, almond dust, bananas, cacao nibs, and honey. It was just the sweet fix I needed after a long day. It tasted healthy and delicious, and the almond dust was surprisingly good. The service was great, and the food came quick.
