We stopped in just to see what's there. I don't even know what I was looking for. Turns out the assistance there told us everything we wanted to know. She was so friendly, unfortunately, I didn't catch her name.

A basic info center with lots of brochures and guides to the area. About a third of it is a nice history section that is worth visiting. It sit right on Penn Square with the great statue in the middle of the street.

We were looking to spend the day learning about Lancaster. The lady at the desk asked just the right questions to discover our interests and get us on our way. We were able to take the TukTuk tour which was perfect.

This Visitor Center definitely has it right. They have tours, they have information, and they even have a live re-enactor who looks and talks like James Buchanan, Lancaster's fine native son president. Fruitlands was his home, and it is definitely worth a visit. This Center...More
