The heart of Pennsylvania's famous "Dutch Country," Lancaster is one of the nation's oldest inland cities, founded in 1730.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Wheatland and Ephrata Cloister. Gettysburg National Military Park and Jennie Wade House are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Lancaster: Valley Forge National Historical Park (in Valley Forge), Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square) and Gettysburg (Eisenhower National Historic Site, Gettysburg Museum of History, & more). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at The Amish Farm and House and get engrossed in the history at Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.
