Lancaster is a fascinating destination to explore. Visitors will get a glimpse of farm life, as it was in the early 1800's, and they can explore markets and farm stores for homemade shoo-fly pie and fresh produce, or shop for handmade quilts. President James Buchanan's elegant home, Wheatland, is located in Lancaster. Consider a side trip to nearby Hershey, home of Hershey Park and the Hershey Chocolate Factory.
Hop on board the Strasburg Rail Road, which is also located in beautiful Lancaster County. Or take a ride on the 45-minute train excursion through the farms and scenery of Lancaster. After your tour, stop at the Thomas the Tank gift shop for that special present for the little engine in your life. During the year, there are wonderful events hosted aboard the historic trains. Stop at the Kitchen Kettle Village for some yummy Amish treats...kettle corn!!!!
