Welcome to Downtown York!

There’s so much to experience here in York, PA! Whether it’s a ballgame at Sovereign Bank Santander Stadium (home to our York Revolution) or a day of shopping and fantastic foods in our Market District, York is a destination for all to enjoy here in south central Pennsylvania. 


Our proud city has a history of making things. From the turn of the century manufacturing through today’s technological and industrial design, York has stood apart as a place where the design and the industrial meet… and are unleashed!  It is no secret that we are known as the Industrial Arts & Design Capital of the World.  Today’s manufacturing businesses like BAE Systems stand shoulder-to-shoulder with industrial artists creating incredible works of art throughout our downtown. Every street corner is a canvass, every business a designer of community.


Great restaurants, historic sites, wonderful art galleries, and amazing businesses help shape the spirit of York.  Come experience it for yourself. Click on the above icons to begin to plan some time with us here in the White Rose City.  Shopping, Dining, Nightlife, and Entertainment…. York has it all!


Thanks for coming by, and welcome again to York, PA!
