More Family Vacation Ideas

Pennsylvania Dutch Country
In the heart of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, delve into the Amish culture, sample chocolate, and become a scientist.

*Visit the Amish Village to explore the history and modern customs of the quaint community in a village setting, complete with one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, livestock, and much more.

*Explore the delicious sights, sounds, smells, and eats of the Central Market, America’s oldest operating farmer’s dating back to the 1730s in downtown Lancaster.

*Many parents know about Hersheypark, but did you know that ZooAmerica is celebrating its 100th birthday this year? Check out The Ranger Scratch Kids Club and centennial celebration events.

* Make science fun at the Lancaster Science Factory. A new find! Through exhibits, work stations, and mini-labs, children can experiment and create as they learn the principles of science in engineering and technology.

* Enjoy a 45-minute ride on the Strasburg Rail Road, America’s oldest short-line railroad circa 1832. Across the road is the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, an incredible collection of historic locomotives and vintage railroad cars. Extra-value combo tickets are available for the two properties.
