Lancaster
The heart of Pennsylvania's famous "Dutch Country," Lancaster is one of the nation's oldest inland cities, founded in 1730.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lancaster: Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library (in Winterthur), Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square) and The Hershey Story Museum (in Hershey). Next up on the itinerary: witness the site of a historic battle at Gettysburg National Military Park, take an in-depth tour of Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, wander the streets of Kitchen Kettle Village, and find something for the whole family at Dutch Wonderland.
