Peter,My wife wants to go to Pennsylvania Dutch country this June Ca anybody give me a good route down from the Toronto Buffalo area I could take up to 3 days to get there. Any suggestions for good places to stay in the area would be appreciated as well
I'd prefer not to be on major highways too much. I'm easy on hotels if there is something different than a standard chain thats coolPeter,
You didn't mention if you want main highways or secondary roads..
I live about 5 miles from the Lancaster county line..
How long are you planning on spending in Lancaster county area ???
Do you want big name hotels ??
I have never stayed at this place but others that I know have,, It's actually refurbished railroad cabooses... Not sure what your looking for..
There are many, many hotel and motels in the Lancaster county area..
Great So far its looking like the week of the 22ndPeter,
Just to start off with I'd take route #219 south out of N.Y. and catch
route 6 in Pa. and take that east... (we've traveled route 6 many time and love it.) you can take that over to Mansfield and take route 15 south to route 322 east. That will lead to to either route 72 south out route 501 south directly into the heart of Dutch country....
Depending on when you go in June we might be around and can help you out more. Just let us know...
I'll see if I can find a web site for the train motel and some others,
yea I love that ridw through northern NYGotta agree with Bill. Once you get past Buffalo 219 is a nice ride all the way down.
You could also look at crossing the Border at the other end of Lake Ontario, on I81 near Alexandria Bay NY. There are a couple of different ways to come down through the Adirondaks all of which should be nice rides, then down the Caskills and into the Poconos. That would be a nice ride for sure.
Hey let's not leave out some homemade Sho-Fly pie and Ice cream...Have to agree with Pop n Fresh about the route. Especially along the Susquehanna river, one of my favorite rides. We always stay with family when in Lancaster county so I can't recommend any motels. I would suggest that you avoid Lancaster city as it is not what it used to be. After you go to all the Dutch home style restaurants,[ make sure you try the scrapple] be sure to get a cheese steak at any of the sandwich shops. Lancaster cheese steak is better than Philly.
At one time years ago, they were two different people,,but, somehow they have all become "the Amish"...Are PA Dutch yinz version of the Amish, or are they 2 totally different Breeds? "Our" Amish aren't allowed to cook. Just curious
Sorry for the hi-jack
