Lancaster County, Pennsylvania: Rural Farming Region with Large Amish Community and Rich Colonial History
Lancaster is located about 60 miles west of Philadelphia in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. It's an idyllic landscape of rolling farmland dotted with grazing cows, covered bridges, and horse-drawn carriages. Lancaster County is home to the largest Old Order Amish population in the country. For a glimpse into this fascinating culture, head to Lancaster Central Market, the oldest continuously operating farmers' market in the U.S. Here, vendors in traditional dress sell freshly ground horseradish, smoked sweet bologna, and other goods all year round.
At the nearby Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum, you can tour more than 15 historical buildings, including a farmstead and a country store, and watch costumed guides demonstrate pottery making and tinsmithing. The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, meanwhile, commemorates the region's rich locomotive history, allowing visitors a chance to operate the controls of a freight train and learn how steam engines work.
