Pennsylvania Dutch Country
Step back into a simpler way of life in beautiful Lancaster County, the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. The traditional ways of the Amish people will welcome you with home-cooked meals, quilts and a way of life that has disappeared from many parts of the country. Be sure to sample some shoofly pie and reconnect with your family in this region of wholesome fun.
Looking for some family fun especially geared toward the younger ones in your family? Then Dutch Wonderland is the spot! Here you’ll find kid-friendly rides and attractions meant to delight the smaller set. You’ll want to catch a show or two, especially if you have any Princess or Thomas the Tank Engine fans in your family! Just stroll the park and delight in the giggles and grins surrounding you.
At this small town in Pennsylvania lie some of the most revered sites in Civil War history. Rent a horse or Segway and tour the Gettysburg National Military Park. Re-trace President Abraham Lincoln’s steps at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery. And witness the Battle of Gettysburg as it comes alive for you in theater productions, Cyclorama painting, and the homes of Civil War era residents.
