3. Lancaster Central Market

Visit the country’s oldest farmers’ market, Lancaster Central Market, in the heart of Amish country! Regional food specialties include Pennsylvania Dutch sausage, scrapple (a breakfast meat of pork scraps and cornmeal), and headcheese (like scrapple, an acquired taste). You’ll also find preserves, including chowchow (pickled vegetables in a spicy mustard sauce), and bread and butter pickles. The market is also a great place to buy souvenirs.

Climb aboard the larger-than-life steam train at Strasburg Railroad and enjoy a 45-minute, round-trip ride through the tranquil Amish countryside to Paradise, PA and back. Marvel at more than 1,000 acres of farm fields as they pass by your window. Disembark and enjoy old-fashioned fun at Groff’s Grove or Leaman Place Grove, convenient recreation areas along the train’s route for mid-way boarding or unloading. Ride aboard the First-Class Cars for an especially memorable experience!
