The warm weather and sunny skies have me pining for vacation! I'm not a beach kinda gal at all, so this year, we are planning a trip to the beautiful Smoky Mountains. I can.not.wait!! It's just a few hours away and there is so much to do there. Hubby and I love it!
I was glancing through some photos of our vacation to Lancaster, PA last summer...awesome place to visit, by the way...and I decided to share a few with you.
Lancaster County in Pennsylvania is home to the world's oldest and largest Amish community. This is a beautiful Amish farm:
Lancaster also has around 25 covered bridges. They are charming! Here's one for your viewing pleasure:
Hershey, PA is a short drive from Lancaster, so of course, we had to visit Hershey's Chocolate World. We toured the chocolate factory and made our own Hershey bar!
And, no visit to Pennsylvania would be complete without a stop at Gettysburg. Of course, the area is rich with Civil War history...perfect for my history-buff Hubby.
Here we are at the Gettysburg National Park. In the background is the area that would have been the battlefield.
And here are the remnants of a rock wall fort built by Civil War soldiers:
Hubby and I had an amazing time, but there's nothing like comin' home!
What about you guys? Any vacation plans in the works?
Have a blessed week, friends.
