Pennsylvania Dutch Country is a unique little area around Lancaster. Most people associated it with unusual names of towns, such as Intercourse, Bird-In-Hand, and Paradise. There aren't many chances in life to bowl at the Blue Ball Lanes in Blue Ball, Pa.
You can learn about Amish and Mennonite life while visiting, and even take a horse-and-buggy ride during your stay. It's not a bad place to shop for quilts, either. I'm not sure if there's enough to keep the kids entertained for long in the region, but it's a charming area for the grown-ups.
