Been in the area a few times on weekend getaways as well as passing through. I don't recall what to see other than Hersey, but that's a beautiful area, you'll enjoy yourself.
Rich,,1+ for Strasburg Creamery. its a great place for lunch, and of course ice cream - anytime.
No affiliation - just like the place.
In Lancaster County, Strasburg is the place to begin your PA Dutch Country tour. Lots to do in that area depending on your interests. If it's the end of August the PA Renaissance Fair woulf be a must see, just a little North of Lancaster. Also it's a nice ride over to Gettysburg if you've never been there.For our yearly trip that I plan, one of my friends suggested we go to the Amish country, around Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Im not real familiar with that area and have no idea what to plan. I know we would go to Hershey one day, and probably ride the back roads thru the country in hopes of seeing the Amish way of life (horse and buggy and so forth), but can anyone recommend any "must sees" or other things to do while there. Trip is not until August so I have plenty of time to make plans.
Thanks for any info.
Oooh, forgot about Shady Maple, gotta add that to the must see list...three times a day preferably .:lol:twodogs1800,

Oh Yeah, Shady Maple 3 times a day,, Let me think about that,,,Oooh, forgot about Shady Maple, gotta add that to the must see list...three times a day preferably .:lol:
agreed they are not always the honorable people many seem to thinkThe Amish in this Community are real Commercialized. There are some interesting things to do there. They are set up for tour tours to go through. The Amish are spread across the State and have different communities set up.
There are some tours that you can take to show how there way of life should be. NOT necessary true.
There are Communities near Indiana Pa. I feel all they are a religous cult that has found a way to defraud the goverment. The abuse Aminals and children and woman. They are dirty, lawless, and not very nice people to have to deal with. They hide behind a religon to find a way not to pay taxes or there bills. They have small children running machines that labor laws got children away from in the early 1900's. I work in a Hospital and see the injury from these accidents. The run dog mills and not far from here when the goverment was going to have them get license and bring the there kennel up to code the killed over 80 dogs. I can tell you more if you like and can get newspaper articles to back these staments.
