March 1, 2007 - PRLog -- Lancaster, PA, March 1, 2007 – Lancaster and the entire Pennsylvania Dutch Country offer a glimpse into a serene world where a peaceful pace of life reigns. Visitors come for spring getaways to learn and explore these farmlands where horse and buggy is the primary form of transportation and windmills provide a natural energy source.

Families with children under 12 will love Dutch Wonderland where lines are short and admission includes all rides and attractions including magic shows, a diving show, and meeting an Indian in his teepee. Some other family fun adventures include the Hands-on House Children’s Museum, horse rides, visiting local markets or farm stands to buy homemade shoofly pie, other homemade baked goods, fresh produce, or purchasing a gorgeous handmade quilt, and exploring President James Buchanan’s historic home, Wheatland.

Enjoying a pampering at a world-class spa or wine tastings, vineyard tours, and award winning microbrews are sophisticated traveler favorites. For once-in-a-lifetime experiences hot air balloon rides and helicopter tours of the Amish farmlands will provide memories that last a lifetime.

To delve a little deeper into the history of this great culture, the Mennonite Information Center offers visitors an in-depth experience of Amish and Mennonite cultures and lifestyles. Visitors can call to request a personal guide for countryside tours before coming to the region. During these tours, families will witness working Amish farms as well as seeing landmarks and historic sites that are key to this amazing culture.
