When planning group family vacations with home friends in Virginia, we are always looking for great spots in between to meet. Lancaster popped up on the map and I had heard about “Amish Country” but didn’t know anything else about it. Well, I was shocked at all the amazing family activities there are. You could easily spend a whole week, or more, here! There really is something for everyone in Lancaster—cultural Amish experiences, working farm activities, history, outdoor sports and scenic hikes, a train lover’s mecca, agri-tainment and amusement parks. To our pleasant surprise, even though it was a holiday weekend, nothing was “very crowded” which is such a welcomed change!
