Summer Family Getaway Adventure

Summer means "vacation" for many school-aged children, so better yet make it a memorable one for your kids ;).
Lancaster, Pennsylvain is one of the ideal place to go to and explore. Kids can explore the modern side of Lancaster by visiting theme parks such as Dutch Wonderland. It's not as big as other theme parks, but kids aged 5-10 years old can enjoy it.
If the kids love the train, the Strasbourg Railroad offers a ride in a replica of the famous talking train.
Other great opportunities to explore is the Amish culture. let them catch a buggy ride, visit a quilt museum and have dinner at Pennsylvania Dutch Restaurant.
Another kid-friendly activity is the Herr's Potato Chips factory which offers free tours. You can also bring them to Julius Sturgis Pretzel Bakery where each person on the tour gets a chance to twist his or her own pretzel.
