My husband and I are traveling back to NC from Rochester, NY. We are planning to stop Friday evening to stay in Lancaster, PA, and then travel on Sat. evening to meet my parents in Baltimore, MD. Our stay will be brief in Lancaster, but we would like to make the most of our short visit. We are staying at the Hampton Inn in Lancaster (we have Hilton Points). We have been offered an upgrade to a "Taste of Lancaster" package, which includes dinner at Miller's Smorgasboard, a two hour "Amish Farm" tour on Saturday morning and an Amish "goodie basket". This upgrade is an additional $70! Can we stick with using our points for a free stay and just tour/eat cheaper on our own?
If so do you have a suggestion on a good true Amish place to eat? The only place I have ever heard of in the area is the Good and Plenty, which my grandmother used to talk about.
Any info you can provide, would be much appreciated.
