Lancaster County Dutch Market

Reviewed By LolaGo1 - Washington DC, District of Columbia

It is only opened from Thursdays to Saturdays. They are closed for the other days of the week.

My favorites are the store that sells pretzels and the other one that sells nuts, candies and chocolates. The pretzels are freshly baked at the store. I like most their plain pretzels and the one with sausage and cheese that cost $3 each. This store only takes CASH while the candy/nut store accepts major credit cards.

Some stores sell fried chicken, meats, vegetables and fruits, furnitures, etc.There is a small restaurant inside the building that serves American dishes.

Highly recommended to visit if you're in the area.

When a foreigner goes to an outlet mall he/she expects to see outlet prices and not regular store prices. This plsce was a real DISAPPOINTMENT. The price and sales are the same as regular stores. They use the name outlet just get buyers to come but I doubt that many buy anything. People had little or no packages in hand. I wouldn't waste my time on this place and definitely not recommend it to others.

I went hiking here recently with some friends. I thought it was an enjoyable hike. I think we ended up hiking about seven miles or so. We switched between trails a couple times, so it was hard to tell for sure. I didn't feel like the trail markings were great, so it was helpful that we were able to use GPS to navigate thanks to the availability of cell phone signal. There was a little bit of uphill, but not much. According to my phone, we topped out at a little over 900'. There wasn't much for views, kin fortunately, probably due to the low elevation. Still, it was a nice walk in the woods, and I was surprised to find that nice a hike that close to D.C.

They have all sorts of veggies and fruits with online line listings of what's available throughout the whole harvesting season. Be sure to call the day you plan to go for the update on what is actually ready for picking that day. We go for the apples in the fall and always enjoy the drive out into the country and make a morning of it. Staffed by nice folks out in each of the fields.

We took four grandchildren ( Ages 10, 7, 7, 4) here, and they had a blast. It is a small park with a variety of basic rides, including faster ones that the 10-year old boy enjoyed (coasters and go karts) and easier ones for the littler ones (mini coaster and spinning tea cups). We did not have big expectations, and we were not disappointed. It was a perfect outing for us. There is also a fairly large indoor play area, as well as a small cafe with a limited menu. The park was not crowded at all, so we had only brief waits for the rides. I think older kids would find this park boring, but it is perfect for the younger set.

it was very cold and windy when we visited here. We saw a movie at the AMC Theaters and had delicious dinner at the Copper Canyon Grill Restaurant. Thoroughly enjoyed both places.

Other attractions/places to visit here: Shops like Target and Dick's, smaller shops, restaurants, man-made lake, etc.

We'll definitely visit here again when the weather becomes warmer: eat at other restaurants, shop, and just walk around the lake.

Whiskey Creek Golf Club

This championship golf course is only about 30 minutes from Washington D.C., but it has a feeling of privacy and seclusion.

Reviewed By Sheryl B - Bethesda, Maryland

A bit of a hike for some, but it is a fabulous course. Several elevated tee boxes, with wonderful views. Course is in great condition, with a great pace of play. It doesn't have a whole lot of water, but is challenging. They also have the best clubhouse food around- come up with great daily specials, and grow produce on site. Very nice covered patio to watch golfers come in on 18. It is a bit pricey, but it is worth it.

Days End Farm Horse Rescue

Reviewed By blair h - Highland, Maryland

This facility rehabilitates and shelters abused and neglected horses and ponies . The staff and t the numerous volunteers educate and inform the public about equine health, or lack of it, and safety. Rehabilitated animals can be "adopted" . The facility should be toured, donations should be made to it and I sure a call in advance of your visit would be appreciated since everyone is working.
