The heart of Pennsylvania's famous "Dutch Country," Lancaster is one of the nation's oldest inland cities, founded in 1730.
Appreciate the collections at The Amish Farm and House and Ghost & Vampire Tours. Get some cultural insight at Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and Wilbur Chocolate Candy Store. Get out of town with these interesting Lancaster side-trips: Lincoln Train Museum (in Gettysburg), Dover (Old State House, Johnson Victrola Museum, & more) and Hershey Derry Township Historical Society (in Hershey). The adventure continues: get in on the family fun at Dutch Wonderland, take an in-depth tour of C&D Canal Museum, examine the collection at Eastern Museum of Motor Racing, and hunt for treasures at Lancaster Central Market.
