Anytime we are near Philly, we try to get over to Lancaster County and drive the back roads. The Amish and Mennonite farms are spread out everywhere. They take such care in maintaining their properties, so us tourist can take beautiful pictures. I’m sure that’s not their reason, but I do encourage you to get off the Interstate, slow down and see what life was like 100 years ago. Stop at the roadside farmer’s markets and get some homemade rootbeer. Autumn is the best time to visit. Pick up a map that shows where all the covered bridges are and take the tour around the county checking them out.
