The array of specialty shops, restaurants, and a historic movie theater make the charming downtown an experience individual’s return to time and time again. Handcrafted furniture, original art, high end clothing and jewelry, custom-made guitars, and even golf putters are among the many shopping treasures you’ll find in downtown York. If your taste runs to live music, movies or live theater, visit York on any evening or weekend. PLEASE RECYCLE THIS PUBLICATION
