The Lancaster Visitors Center is a great choice to make for help planning your visit to the Amish Country in Lancaster. They helped me map out a car tour that went through the farmlands of Landaster with some interesting stops along the way.

A gathering of all the ads for all the local attractions is here. Could be better in my opinion but it's a well worth stop to get a feel of what Lancaster has to offer.
