Lancaster is actually the oldest inland city in America and it used to be the capital of the city till Harrisburg became the state capital in 1813. Despite this, it has grown into a strong city and developed into a modern and attractive one as well, offering many things for all types of visitors.
The Amish community has managed to keep rather isolated from the rest of Lancaster living as they have for the past hundreds of years, without electricity or cars. They are masters of farming and simple living, their community being completely self-sufficient having their own schools and churches.
Their way of life has not changed throughout the centuries and that is due to the fact that they keep to themselves, but despite this they still give back to the Lancasterian community at large, Amish goods being very sought after. The city offers a couple of ways through which they tech visitors about how the Amish live through the Amish Experience F/X Theater, the People’s Place Quilt Museum, the Amish Country Tours and the Mennonite Information Center.
There are several other sights that can be interesting to visit like the Elizabethtown College which has a center dedicated to studying Plain communities of the United States.
The Ephrata Cloister is a beautiful historic site which still has its original 18th century buildings. The tours around this place are great for explaining the lives of German religious refugees who came here in 1732.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do in Lancaster, so make sure to employ our Lancaster car hire services as your main means of transportation through the city.
