City Guide: Discover the best of Lancaster

     If there was ever a city to paint, Lancaster best sits for a portrait.

     Lancaster’s pretty portrait of art galleries, shops and museums won the All-American City Award. This made Lancaster famous as a destination where green farmland gives way to busy streets making it a city to take it easy, away from the big-city buzz.

     Serving as a rural playground, Lancaster has all modern options for your stay. Be it a room in cheap hotel in Lancaster to one packed with luxuries all listed at Booked.net. You should check out our on-line offers with maps, photos and secure forms on each hotel.

     As you are in Lancaster, the best way to get involved with the city is to share its lifestyle. The city is caught between two worlds – old and new – and manages to profit from both. If history tugs Lancaster back to the days it was first founded, the glimpses of modernity cover the city's countryside with offices and modern-style bridges. Consequently, the Amish Farm and House, the Lancaster Quilt and Textile Museum all share space with the Mennonite Information Center.

Other attractions include;

- Millersville University, the most famous of public universities in the region

- Strasburg Rail Road, America's oldest short-line railroad

- Historic Lancaster City, the largest historic area of the country

- The Ephrata Cloister, a historic site with 18th century buildings

- Elizabethtown College, dedicated to the study of Plain communities in America

     Lancaster started in 1700s when Andrew Hamilton owned the area and his son invested money to design the layout of the city. Since then Lancaster has become the oldest inland city and won the capital credentials of Pennsylvania till that status moved to Harrisburg in 1813. For a long time the city of Lancaster was referred to as the "Hickory Town", but John Wright, the honorary citizen named it after Lancaster in England where he used to live.

     Along with the ''city fathers'' go many other famous residents like James Buchanan, the only president from Pennsylvania, and Robert Fulton, painter and engineer. Away from the glory of honorary citizens, Lancaster is known as a city of good taste. The foreign presence of Amish and Mennonite population shaped both international culinary heritage and farming practices. In Lancaster both go hand by hand because home-grown food is a key to the cuisine in the city.

     As there is no point eating without a comfortable stay, you should rely on Booked.net to make the very best of your trip to Lancaster.
