Great restaurants and local attractions. Millers Restaurant had a fantastic smorgasbord with warm delectable desserts. We came to go to Sight and Sound, which was excellent. We'll return when we can visit more of the historic local attractions.

Recommended in Lancaster

We traveled in March, not too many people there so we could move about with out hassle. Went to Wheatland the home of President James Buchanan and had a private tour! Very interesting and wonderful for our children.

If you are a "foodie" don't miss Stoltzfus Meats, Kitchen Kettle Village and Clyde Weaver Meats. Driving the countryside - observe the simple life.

It was so relaxing driving around the town and countryside seeing the small businesses and the farms. The people are so nice there.

Our trip was to see The Oak Ridge Boys in concert. they performed for 2 hours, non stop. Fabulous Concert.

The cleanliness of the kitchens & the fresh food. Cleanliness is next to Godliness seems to be their motto
