Your guide to Lancaster

Welcome to Lancaster

The city of Lancaster sits at the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country, forming a bridge between the rural lifestyle in the surrounding farmlands and the local creative communities. Curious travelers have been coming here for decades for glimpses of a world that is at once surreal and increasingly more familiar. This is a place where horse-drawn buggies ply the dirt roads and markets sell the latest in local and handmade goods. The city of Lancaster, a classic Pennsylvania Dutch community, is a jumping-off point for exploring the maze of smaller roads dotted with handicraft shops and artisan food stands. Here you’ll find modern shops selling quality, handmade products alongside locavore restaurants that use ingredients and techniques from the region in fun, fascinating ways.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Lancaster

Summer tends to be warm and muggy, while winters are chilly. But the in-between months bring pleasant weather and lots to do. Lancaster’s surrounding fields burst with color as the spring flowers poke out their pretty heads, and Easter events and celebrations can make it an ideal time to stay in one of the area’s vacation rentals. Spring is also when the annual tradition of mud sales (auctions of locally made goods) attracts savvy shoppers looking for deals on things like Amish quilts, handmade furniture, livestock, and farm equipment. The sales are usually run by the local volunteer fire companies, include plenty of homemade food, and are as much social events as they are effective fundraisers. Fall in Lancaster is harvest season, which brings the opportunity to buy local produce and the tasty pies from which they’re made. Roadside farm stands, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes dominate the landscape, while the crisp air brings out the brilliant fall colors in the foliage.

Top things to do in Lancaster

Lancaster Central Market

This nearly 300-year-old market brings the best of Lancaster County and its surrounding area under one roof for an easy, abundant shopping experience. Locally grown produce and flowers, regional foods, and handicrafts stands share the market space with restaurants serving cuisine from around the region and the world.

Farm and Food Tours

Roaming the backroads of Lancaster County is one of the area’s main draws: that’s where the famous farm stands sell their jams and jellies, dairies produce their cheeses, and the locals pick up their whoopie pies. Get around by bike, bus, or even scooter, and let a guide show you the way over the rivers and through covered bridges to old schoolhouses and the best butter.

Susquehanna River

Explore the region by paddling a canoe down the Susquehanna River, or hiking or biking the trails that mirror it. A series of parks, water trails, rail trails, and nature preserves surround the river as it flows through Lancaster County, giving you plenty of ways to experience rural Pennsylvania.
