Itinerary Ideas

Covered Bridge of Southern Amish Countryside

Day 1

Christiana Underground Railroad Center
The self-guided museum provides fascinating evidence of the resistance; bibliographies of the persons and the locations of the Underground Railroad Stations are presented through the collective efforts of local historians.

Mercer's Mill Covered Bridge
Built in 1880 and located just south of Christiania, is one of the only two remaining bridges shared with Chester County. Interestingly, this bridge is photographed best in the spring.

Day 2

Pine Grove Covered Bridge 
This is the only double-span, double-arch bridge in use in Lancaster County, at 204 feet. Originally built in 1816, it was later rebuilt in 1846 and 1884 because it was destroyed by flood water. The bridge is jointly owned by Lancaster and Chester Counties.

White Rock Forge Covered Bridge
The second oldest covered bridge in Lancaster County still open to traffic, was originally built in 1847 and rebuilt in 1884. In its long history, this Lancaster covered bridge has been washed away and rebuilt twice.

Jackson's Sawmill Covered Bridge 
This bridge was built in 1878, but was destroyed by a flood in 1988. The county rebuilt the bridge and raised it an additional three feet to keep safe from future floods.

Day 3

Strasburg Country Store & Creamery
Visiting The Strasburg Country Store & Creamery is like going back in time. One step inside the door and you’ll feel yesteryear come alive with the sights, sounds and smells of fresh-baked waffle cones or chocolate being heated in 20-pound batches for our homemade fudge. 

Strasburg Rail Road
Quite possibly the best way to experience Lancaster County.  Traveling aboard authentic passenger cars, pulled by a massive, coal-burning steam locomotive, there's beauty as far as the eyes can see. Rolling hills. Working farms. A landscape that has changed little over time.

Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
The awe-inspiring power of trains awaits you at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, where you can take the throttle in an authentic freight locomotive cab.

Village Greens Miniature Golf's
Two spacious miniature golf courses covering over 10 acres are one of Lancaster County's hidden jewels.  Enjoy the challenge of golf while enjoying the natural beauty of our lush gardens.
