Traveling along Lititz and Manheim PA.
By the end of March we took this trip along the countryside, and drived around Manheim, and Lititz PA, it was a wonderful day. I love horses and Alpacas, we found this somewhere in Manheim. We visited some antique stores, and ate at a local italian restaurant. Lititz is a nice place to go for a bike ride also. Among other attractions you can find a Wolf Sanctuary, a Pretzel Bakery, a Train Station Replica, Museums, The Wiburt Chocolate Candy Store and Museum.
Lititz is nestled in the heart land of rich farming country in Lancaster County.earliest settlers were Swiss-German Mennonites,Moravians and Amish in 1710 who fled religious persecution in Europe. They built old stone mills, wooden covered bridges and log homes. Many 18th Century town buildings have been wonderfully restored and can be enjoyed as you walk through town. Numerous local farms have been owned perpetually by the same families for 200 years.
