So with a full and happy belly, I continued Eastward. Passing through West Virginia and into Pennsylvania; destination Lancaster. Lived here for sixteen years. I know the area well and below are photos of my favorite sites Do love the Amish farms. Lots of respect for the Amish folk. America could learn a lot about their work ethic!
Lancaster County offers quite a bit of things to see and do -and great eats. A drive through the farm lands is scenic and peaceful. For a more exciting adventure take a ride on the Strassburg Railroad. Located only twenty minutes from downtown Lancaster you can take a trip back in time. A time when the live - living - steam trains of yesteryear huffed and puffed through our land. I love steam engines. Great beasts that seem alive. In the film below listen to the roar, the clanging, the whistle shattering the peace of the farm land; but oh so wonderful.
Time to eat? An icon of Amish buffets is SHADY MAPLE. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Truly a cornucopia of foods. Located a short (traffic permitting) drive from Lancaster in New Holland.
See You Down The Road
