Getting there is half the fun! 

Flying in?  A rental car will be necessary. The drive from the airport is approx. 1 1/2 hours.  Which airport?  The Philadelphia and Baltimore Airports are nearly the same distance.  Both routes are scenic once out of the city.  The Baltimore flights were slightly cheaper when  compared in early May. 


Lancaster County area has a number of quality Hotels.  But, for that country feel, definitely compare accommodations with the B&B's and Vacation Homes available in the Washington Boro vicinity.    

Things to Do!

Adventure along the Susquehanna river or deep into Amish country.  There is something for the whole family to experience in the Washington Boro Area

Tomatoes are great, but so is Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner on those Non-Festival days.  Plan on trying the areas Top Rated (by other travelers, not stodgy food critics) Restaurants.
