  • 1. Lancaster Host Resort and Conference Center
    Lancaster Host Resort and Conference Center, Lancaster, Lancaster County

    Get the "super-saver" rate here- room with 2 double beds for 69.95 per night. Great hotel with lots of kiddie activities including pools & movie night. Pet friendly too!

  • 2. Dutch Wonderland
    Dutch Wonderland, Lancaster, Lancaster County

    Ideal family park for the under 8 set. My 4 year old twins LOVE the kid sized rides & the new kiddie water park. Arrive 3 hours before park closes & get your ticket for the next day- and you ride for free for the rest of that night! Great to do after seeing Thomas for the day. Make sure you get the coupons- Dunkin Donuts usually has a coupon. Much better than Hershey park for the little guys.

  • 3. Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania
    Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, Ronks, Lancaster County

    Thomas the Tank Engine weekends rock here for the train enthusiasts! Combo ticket is $21.00 per person & an all day event. Lots of photo oportunities for the kids & a great day out all around. Be sure to take your picture with the famous engine- and watch the kids eyes light up- fantastic! They also include Thomas tattoos, "ride-on" engines, a wooden train play area.

  • 4. Plain & Fancy Farm & Dining Room
    Plain & Fancy, Bird in Hand, Lancaster County

    Great amish inspired family style dining. $14.95 all you can eat adults and $5.95 for children. This is not a buffet- it is platters you pass around like at home. Includes soup to nuts & a great, home cooked meal. The fried chicken is out of this world! Can't beat this place for the price- and its very sweet to alk around as well.

  • 5. Hershey's Chocolate World
    Hershey's Chocolate World, Hershey, Pennsylvania

    The great chocolate ride at Hershey's Chocolate World (this is not "inside" Hershey park- it's right on the outside) is fabulous for little kids & they get a free chocolate sample at the end. Go in your last day before going home- get free samples & have a sundae up stairs in the little cafe. Delicious and free!
