Well we would describe Lancaster as a collision of cultures. The downtown area boasts several small colleges which contributes to a huge party scene. Five miles outside of the city you are sharing the road with biker gangs and traditional Amish families riding their horse drawn buggies. We were not huge fans of downtown but did have a nice lunch there. We preferred the pace of the Amish and stayed at a quaint family owned campground surrounded by local Amish families.

Pequea Creek campground was quiet during the week and then on Friday it started filling up. Our big Friday night entertainment was assessing all our new neighbors while sitting in our chairs outside of Peg!! We really enjoyed the slow pace of Pequea and the surrounding area.
We loved being able to get farm fresh cheese, vegetables and free range organic eggs. All you have to do is drive through the rolling hills and look for a sign, then you pull into a farm and go right up to the door and buy what they have. One day several Amish families had asparagus sitting in coolers at the end of their driveways, we put $2 in a plastic container and walked away with a huge bunch.
