Hello, my wife and I will be traveling to the Lancaster area on Saturday and staying in Ephrata on Saturday and Sunday night.
We will be traveling from Maryland and plan on taking a route mentioned on this forum starting just west of the Susquehanna River at RT 74 and RT 372 going east over the Norman Wood bridge, through Buck and then heading to Ephrata from Georgetown (Bart ?).(896).
Heading to Gettysburg on Sunday morning. We plan on taking the 10am shuttle to the Eisenhower farm (allowing 2 hours). Then returning and having some lunch there at the visitors center and taking in the Cyclorama, Film and Museum. Then hiring a guide to ride in our car to tour the battlefield.
Will this work? or is it better to take in the Cyclorama, Film and Museum first?
Being a Sunday, does the traffic go down later in the afternoon?
xxrrttyy I saw where you knew the contact information of some guides, I was wondering if you could send those names to me? Thank you.
Places to eat on Sunday night as we head back to Ephrata? Scenic route from Gettysburg back to Ephrata?
We plan to take in the country side around Lancaster on Monday (may be a buggy ride (Abe's seems to be the one to use) What about AAA buggy rides?
I know the padutchcountry.com website has 5 covered bridge tours. Is there one that is better than the others?
Any off the beaten path antique places you would recommend?
Any places to look out for on this route? Better scenic route to take?
Thank you in advance for your time and suggestions.
