The heart of Pennsylvania's famous "Dutch Country," Lancaster is one of the nation's oldest inland cities, founded in 1730.
Explore hidden gems such as Ephrata Cloister and The Old Country Store. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Little Round Top and Gettysburg National Cemetery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lancaster: Longwood Gardens (in Kennett Square), Hamburg (Cigar International & Cabela's) and Hawk Mountain Sanctuary (in Kempton). There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape at Devils Den, get engrossed in the history at The State Museum of Pennsylvania, identify plant and animal life at Wildwood Park, and look for gifts at Shady Maple Farm Market.

Expect a daytime high around 72°F in May, and nighttime lows around 52°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
