Lititz

— 2 nights
Lititz is a borough in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, six miles (approximately 10 km) north of the city of Lancaster. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Old Windmill Farm and Countryside Road Stand. Take a break from Lititz with a short trip to Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Ronks, about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Historic Rock Ford, contemplate the long history of The Amish Farm and House, get in on the family fun at Dutch Wonderland, and make a trip to Erbs Covered Bridge.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Lititz trip maker site.

Pennsylvania Dutch Country
The core of Pennsylvania's famed "Dutch Country" lies in Lancaster County, a compact area in the southeastern portion of the state. The county features a rolling landscape of green fields and gentle hills, interspersed with small towns and Amish farms. Despite its somewhat misleading nickname, the county is not home to Dutch but German-speaking Swiss Anabaptists, who began settling in religiously tolerant Pennsylvania in the early 1700s. Although Lancaster County thrives on tourism and the Amish community is its main attraction, the Amish themselves remain an intensely private people who are not particularly fond of camera-toting visitors. To learn about their hard-working way of life respectfully, take a trip to one of their hardwood furniture showrooms, clustered around the county's main roads.
