Things to do in Lancaster/Hershey, PA

My wife and I are thinking of this area over Veteran's Day weekend. We're in our 60s so are more interested in Amish Country, outlets, etc than the park. I'd also like to do the Strasbourg RR if there's time. We're driving from Tidewater VA. Thanks in advance.

Are you a Veteran? If so, you can get a free night's stay at a participating bed and breakfast for FREE on Thursday, November 10th. Here's the website to find a B&B:

Now, if you'd like to visit both Hershey and Lancaster and would like to stay somewhere in-between, I'd recommend towns like Marietta or Mt. Joy. The B.F. Hiestand House in Marietta or the Olde Square Inn in Mt. Joy would fit the bill nicely. Enjoy your stay!!

Note that Strasburg Railroad is only a 45 minute ride. Easily doable.
