Lancaster County, "Dutch Country," is well-known as a tourist destination because of our bucolic farms and countryside, our Amish families with their simple way of living, and our dinner theaters and outlet malls. There are plenty of places to shop, dine, relax, and explore in the area. 
 Hershey (think "chocolate") is 40 minutes away and has a major theme park open in the summer.  Its Zoo America and other activities are offered year-round. Our Atlantic League baseball team, the Lancaster Barnstormers, has a great stadium in Lancaster and are fun to root for in the summer. Its rival, The York Revolution Baseball team, is in neighboring York County and there's plenty of excitement when these two teams meet. 
This area is steeped in history and has beautiful, architecturally interesting homes and businesses from the 18th and 19th centuries (1700's-1800's). When you come for therapy and are away from home, be assured there is an abundance of activities and events for everyone!
