They were incredibly helpful at the visitor center spending 45 minutes giving us a history tour without leaving the air conditioning! The multimedia Harry Potteresque room was great too!

The Lancaster Visitors Center is a great choice to make for help planning your visit to the Amish Country in Lancaster. They helped me map out a car tour that went through the farmlands of Landaster with some interesting stops along the way.
