LODGING

For those wishing to make it even more special and definitely more romantic, stay overnight at one of the local Bed & Breakfast inns, many of which are running special romantic weekend packages throughout the entire summer concert series (June 10th - July 15th).

DINING

If you prefer to dine out rather than picnic, you can eat before the concert, then return downtown after the concert for a special dessert at one of Round Top's fine restaurants.  The perfect end to a perfect day!

OPEN HOUSES

If owning a country home interests you, this is a great opportunity to see what Round Top has to offer.  The property market is booming and several of the local agents will be holding Open Houses.

And, of course, Round Top also has a wonderful array of shops to meander through, from antiques to international-quality art and fine fashion apparel!

Festival Hill and the Round Top Area Chamber of Commerce would like to acknowledge and thank the following bed and breakfast inns for actively participating in the Saturday, June 24th "A Day In The Country" as well as the following realtors who will be holding open houses of some of their properties during the event:
