Lancaster, PA Community


Founded in 1683 by William Penn, the city of Lancaster is one of the oldest cities in the United States. Known for its rich Amish history, Lancaster has many historic attractions dating back to the early 1700’s. The city has recently begun to revitalize its downtown and has grown to be known for its burgeoning arts community and top-notch restaurant scene.

Because all work and no play makes for a dull stay, the Lancaster County Convention Center's central location insures visitors quality free time, with a wide variety of sites walking distance from the complex. Central Market, the largest open air farmers market in the country is footsteps away, while the Fulton Theatre, the nation’s oldest continuously operating theater and one of only three theaters named a National Historic Landmark, should be on any visitor's must-see list.

People’s Place Quilt Museum and numerous restaurants, shops and art galleries dot the center of town, while a short drive away are upscale shopping outlets, Clipper Stadium, home of the Atlantic League's Barnstormers, Sight & Sound Millennium Theatre, American Music Theatre, Hershey Park and Dutch Wonderland Family Amusement Park.
