Fly to Lancaster
To get a taste of rural America not far from the bustle of the eastern seaboard, fly to Lancaster, Pennsylvania. You can see rolling farmlands and get a glimpse of people who follow Amish traditions as well as explore a small but lively downtown corridor.
In the heart of downtown Lancaster, you'll find the Central Market, an indoor site in Penn Square where local food producers sell dairy, meat, cheese, vegetables and a variety of baked goods. After you've had a hearty snack, head over to Gallery Row, a block on Prince Street filled with small art galleries that feature the work of local artists.
To take a step back in time, take a tour of Wheatland, which was once President Buchanan's home, or the Rock Ford Plantation, the 18th century home of the Revolutionary War General Edward Hand. Indian Echo Caverns is where you can explore the limestone caves underground in nearby Hummelstown, northwest of Lancaster.
Hints and tips
There is a small airport, the Lancaster Airport (LNS), nearby, but many travelers drive to the region after arriving in Baltimore, an hour and twenty minutes away, or Philadelphia, an hour and ten minutes away.
The town is located along Route 30, and because it's a spread out rural area, it's best to rent a car.
