Dutch Country

I remember as a child visiting the Dutch Country in Pennsylvania. I have such clear memories of the vacation that when I read a brochure called “Pennsylvania Dutch Country,” I just had to share an excerpt.

“Whether your family loves exploring history, thrilling rides, or getting close to nature, you’ll find your niche in PA Dutch Country! Splash the day away at DUTCH WONDERLAND or with a family kayak adventure down the Susquehanna River! Walk the steps of a Civil War soldier in Gettysburg or take a ride on the rails aboard the Strasburg Rail Road. Hungry? Try a new smorgasbord at Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant that’s just for kids!

With just a short ride through PA Dutch Country, you can step back in time to a Civil War battlefield, discover the Underground Railroad homes and churches that housed enslaved Africans on their quest for freedom, or walk the same streets as the Continental Congress. A ride into the farmland shows how the Amish still live without technology, just as their ancestors did years ago. Centuries of history come alive every day in Dutch Country.

From chocolate to chow chow, your taste buds won’t be neglected in PA Dutch Country! In this snack food extravaganza, you can try hand-twisting your own Pennsylvania Dutch pretzel or sampling a warm potato chip just off the line from Martin’s or Herr’s Potato Chips! For dessert, you can’t go wrong with a stop at HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATEWORLD, or try a warm apple pie made with fresh Adams County apples. You definitely won’t leave hungry.”
