    Present-day York provides a peek into the past

    It's impossible not to feel the past in present-day York. The city, sometimes called an architectural museum, has cobblestone streets, charming red brick houses and centuries-old Colonial buildings. Many structures have stood since York was founded in 1741, and some York vacation rentals are in the city's 4 historic districts. York, named for the British city of the same name, was an agricultural and industrial town, which today influences the city's culture, heritage and its branding as "the Factory Tour Capital of the World". This is also the Pennsylvania Dutch region, with Amish and Menonites living in the rural areas.

    Factor in a factory tour during your visit to York

    Feeling like touring a factory or 4? There's Harley Davidson, Snyders of Hanover, Utz Potato Chips or Bluett Brothers Violins, to name a few. If a tasting tour is more your drink of choice, watch wine go from grapes to glass at the family-owned vineyards on the Mason-Dixon Wine Trail. Get a real taste of the city during the York Fair in September, which has rides, street food and live events. And in June, rev your engines for the annual Street Rod Nationals East, when the city is flooded with hot rods.

    Hiking with a side of history and heritage

    If you like poring over artifacts, historical displays and dioramas, you'll love the many museums you can find near York vacation rentals. Downtown, there's the Historical Society Museum and the Colonial Complex, which includes several structures from the 1700s, like the Golden Plough Tavern. Or take a hike on the 21-mile Heritage Rail Trail, which hits several historical sites around York. A quick trip 30 miles west will land you at the iconic Gettysburg National Military Park. For more of York's outdoors, William Kain Park has trails, horseback riding, and Lake Redman for kayaking.

    All 4 seasons have something to show off, but fall wins

    If you like a little variety in your weather, York is a great place to get it. The fall brings crisp weather and spectacular foliage you can admire from almost any York vacation rental. You'll get a dose of humidity with the hot summers, where temps are in the 80s. Winter temps are in the 20s and 30s, and while the quaint buildings and houses are lovely year round, snowfall turns the city into a winter wonderland. Precipitation is common and evenly spread throughout the year, and in spring and summer, cool thunderstorms often arrive with the rain.

    Feel blessed in the rolling hills of this pastoral landscape

    York is in Pennsylvania's Dutch Country, which is a misnomer in that the area's not Dutch but Deutsch, from the German settlers who established it. And no wonder they wanted to: this scenic rural landscape teems with fertile soil, rolling pastures, forested hills and flowing streams that stem from the Susquehanna River. You'll love gazing at cows grazing, and there are vineyards, and fruit orchards where you can pick your own goodies. York itself is a land-locked urban area that's bisected by Codorus Creek, another Susquehanna tributary.
