I don’t know about you but my daughter’s last day of preschool is next week (ack!) and while summer vacation is coming we are also cutting back on our time on extended vacation this year and going to do a lot more local day trips. If you’re like me and looking for an affordable, fun-filled day trip, look no further!
On less than a tank of gas you and your family can enjoy a day of education and entertainment in Lancaster County, PA. PA Dutch Country is not only home to the oldest and largest Amish Community in the country, it is home to many family-friendly attractions and historical sites, such as the oldest American short line railroad. Now you can win tickets to three Lancaster attractions (just in time for Memorial Day and the official start of Summer): Strasburg Rail Road, Choo Choo Barn and The Amish Village.
One lucky PhillyFun4Kids reader will win:
• A family 4-pack of coach tickets to Strasburg RailRoad, America’s oldest short line railroad. Enjoy a 45-minute train ride with an authentic steam locomotive through 1,000 acres of beautiful Amish farmland. Kids will love the Cagney miniature steam train, Cranky Cars and Pump Cars. (You may even catch a glimpse of Thomas the Tank Engine – he will be running on the tracks June 16-24).
• A family 4-pack of tickets to Choo Choo Barn, Traintown U.S.A. Experience one of the largest, most entertaining custom model train displays in America, featuring a 1,700 square foot model train display with more than 150 hand-built animations and 22 operating trains.
• A family 4-pack of tickets to The Amish Village. Families can experience the life of Lancaster County’s Amish. Located on 12 acres, visitors can take a guided tour of an authentic Amish house and explore the farm property at their leisure, including a one-room schoolhouse, blacksmith shop, Smokehouse Market and more.
