This area has been inhabited by Europeans for over 300 years, and Native Americans for centuries before. Every history buff will find gems aplenty. One of the crown jewels is Wheatland, the home owned by our nation’s 15th president, James Buchanan. Guests can tour the home with guides dressed in period attire. You’ll get an up-close view into the time and culture of the first half of the 19th century. In downtown Lancaster, old churches and homes from over 200 years ago are still active, bustling places.
Food for Foodies and Budget Travelers
Downtown Lancaster has lots of options for diners on the lookout for the unique and unexpected. LUCA and Rachel’s Cafe & Creperie are two goodies. For travelers seeking traditional Amish fare, you can’t go wrong with Miller’s Smorgasbord Restaurant in Bird-in-Hand, a tiny hamlet outside Lancaster.
From miniature golf to hiking by the Susquehanna River, Lancaster County boasts many opportunities to get a little fresh air. Take a scooter tour of the Amish farmlands, or a buggy ride past antique shops and farm stands.
