Lancaster — 28 nights

The heart of Pennsylvania's famous "Dutch Country," Lancaster is one of the nation's oldest inland cities, founded in 1730.
Get out of town with these interesting Lancaster side-trips: Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area (in Kleinfeltersville), Mount Hope Estate & Winery, home of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire (in Manheim) and Adamstown (Mad Hatter Antique Mall & Stoudtburg Village). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 17th (Mon) at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Landis Valley Museum, hunt for treasures at Lancaster Central Market, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Historic St. Mary's Catholic Church, and find something for the whole family at Dutch Wonderland.

Pennsylvania Dutch Country
The core of Pennsylvania's famed "Dutch Country" lies in Lancaster County, a compact area in the southeastern portion of the state. The county features a rolling landscape of green fields and gentle hills, interspersed with small towns and Amish farms. Despite its somewhat misleading nickname, the county is not home to Dutch but German-speaking Swiss Anabaptists, who began settling in religiously tolerant Pennsylvania in the early 1700s. Although Lancaster County thrives on tourism and the Amish community is its main attraction, the Amish themselves remain an intensely private people who are not particularly fond of camera-toting visitors. To learn about their hard-working way of life respectfully, take a trip to one of their hardwood furniture showrooms, clustered around the county's main roads.
