Red Rose City
The heart of Pennsylvania's famous "Dutch Country," Lancaster is one of the nation's oldest inland cities, founded in 1730. Although most people know this region because of its Amish community, Lancaster draws an increasing number of international visitors with its landmark buildings and renowned universities. The city includes not only one of the largest historic districts in the country, but also one of America's oldest colleges, established in 1787 and named after Benjamin Franklin, one of its benefactors. The country charm of the region draws up to 8 million visitors annually to this town of just under 60,000, which thrives primarily on tourism dollars. Begin your tour of Lancaster by getting to know its pedestrian-friendly downtown, the heart of all tourist action, especially noted for containing the oldest continuously operating farmers market in the United States. Our United States online trip itinerary planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
