Travel Tips for Strasburg
Visit the Amazing Maize Maze...
Visit the Amazing Maize Maze located at Cherry-Crest Farm, 150 Cherry Hill Rd, Ronks PA (www.amazingmaze.com). It's open from 7/6/02-11/2/02 but it's much better when visited starting in mid-September when the corn is high and the temperature is cool. Me and my husband had only been dating several weeks when I suggested this place as a nice day trip. He thought I was nuts (and still does) but decided to go along. It turned out to be a great time. We parked at the farm, spent a very long time trying to find our way out of the maze and then walked down the road to the small picnic grove where the Strasburg railroad stops, one of the great old steam trains. We took the train to Strasburg, walked around for 15 minutes and took the train back. Then we drove to Strasburg and visited the many tourist destinations like the railroad museum and miniature railroad road-side place. It was like being a kid again.
Strasburg: The Heart of Amish Country
Strasburg is a small, very "touristy" town in the middle of Pennsylvania's Amish country. It's a nice place to go for the day.
"A Rail Buff's Dream"
If you like trains, or history, you'll love the Strasburg Railroad. Take an excursion into the countryside, and see the huge collection of locomotives and rolling stock. It's one of the best rail museums anywhere--and I've seen quite a few.

"The Strasburg Train museum"
Ride a real steam engine through the countryside of Pennsylvania for 45 minutes. Tour a museum with engines, traincars, historical photos and displays from the age of the locomotives. This is a great place to visit and will appeal to any age!
"A SPECIAL DAY WITH THOMAS"
A Day with Thomas the Tank Engine is an event that most young children will absolutely LOVE! We went in September and were warned to arrive early. The highway leading to the Railroad Museum becomes congested as the time nears to board the train and the parking lot fills up quickly, so it is a good idea to arrive early for both reasons mentioned.
Excitement fills the air as the children and their families prepare to board the train. It is an atmosphere filled with laughter and joy as Thomas steams to the station. We would recommend this experience to anyone with small children.
The cost for this is $20.75 for ages 3 and up; $16.00 for ages 2 and up and free for children under 2. There is a great gift shop, storytelling and an opportunity to meet Sir Topham Hatt. Who could ask for anything more?

The phone number is 717-687-7522. It is located on Rt.741 East of Strasburg, Lancaster County, Penna.

oneonta_ni's new Strasburg Page
We only drove through Strasburg but there were a couple of things that caught our eye. The area is heaven for trainspotters as there seemed to be train museums everywhere in this part of PA. One was in Strasburg and apparently it is quite good. The other train related site was the Caboose Motel - each room was a whole caboose! It looked like one would stay there more for the novelty than anything else.
