    Just keep this one to yourself, alright?

    Cute and compact, Lancaster is the kind of secret you don't want to share too widely. Set in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, this distinguished old city has been quietly reinventing itself into a lively, arty hub for vacationers in the know. A Lancaster vacation rental dishes up an intriguing mix of family attractions, art galleries, and museums. A balloon flight over the rolling farmland is the sort of experience you won't forget in a hurry, while tours based around the area's characteristic Amish and Mennonite history are just part of what makes a Lancaster vacation a bit special.

    Raise the barn with a Lancaster vacation

    Lancaster County is Amish heartland, so if you've ever been inquisitive about why you'd choose a horse and buggy over a Lincoln, now's the time to find out. There are plenty of experiences and visits on offer, including bus tours and buggy rides, plus a few Amish and Mennonite museums. Lancaster's also home to the artistic treats of Gallery Row, a newly redeveloped area with a concentration of galleries and practising artists. Outside city limits, a Lancaster vacation rental is the perfect time to get stuck into some hiking or biking, while balloon tours are a local favorite.

    The fine art of a Lancaster vacation rental

    If Gallery Row has whetted your appetite for art, check out the early-20th-century works at the Demuth Museum, or maybe pay a visit to the Lancaster Museum of Art. Littler vacationers who might not have such an appetite for the finer things in life can be placated with a trip to Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, or you could bounce them around until they go quiet at Sky Zone Trampoline Park. When the sun goes down, concerts and Broadway tours at the American Music Theatre should provide something for all the family.

    What plants and vacationers have in common

    If you're wondering what the weather might be like in Lancaster, consider how Amish people make their living. Fortunately, the sort of climate that makes crops grow successfully has a similarly invigorating effect on vacations. There are 4 distinct seasons, but none are extreme. Rain is a little above average, but nothing to write home about. Most of it falls in the summer months, which are hot enough that the odd dousing isn't too much of an inconvenience. Fast forward to winter, and you can expect it to be reasonably cold, with snow falling from time to time.

    Loosen your belt buckle in preparation for this vacation

    Take one look at those rolling fields reaching away towards the Appalachian mountains, and you'll realize that a Lancaster vacation rental is not the time to start watching your waistline. Lancaster County is classic farming country, and that's reflected in the regular farmers' markets and the rich culture of farm-to-table dining. In fact, much of the farmland round here is protected, meaning that no one's going to be able to build shopping malls on it any time soon. It's an impossibly quaint, old-world landscape, with windmills and cornfields stitched together with winding roads and quirky covered bridges.
