An interesting look into the past...
No Internet Cafe... ;-)
In a nutshell
A living example of America of 200 years ago
Going to Intercourse can be exhausting, so we all thought we would head over to Lancaster for a few drinks at this fine establishment. The patio was great. A nice breeze, some cold beverages and some fun photos of the gang, and we were all feeling pretty good about the day's activities.

How can you resist not buying an 'I love Intercourse' fridge magnet or postcard???
The Amish know that weak willed individuals such as myself just cannot help but buy these things and there are plenty of tourist shops to cater to these, ahem, desires...
Sure they have plenty of beautiful hand stitched quilts, or homemade jams - but my eyes were only for the tacky postcards with their double entendres... ;-)
Funny thing is that the cashiers always look at you disapprovingly even though they're stocking these items and taking your money!
Unique Suggestions: As well as the suggestive magnets - well they're not really as if you can love NY, surely you can love Intercourse too... ;-)
Perhaps the funniest thing was that we bought a few postcards here and wrote them here as well to get the postmark.
I wrote one to my friend in New Zealand starting with 'We're in the middle of Intercourse...' and peppered it with innuendo and double entendres about what we were doing, such as people were watching what we were doing (we were just eating lunch in the carpark...) etc...
When we finally got to NZ, his wife said that he'd picked the card up and read it before throwing it down in disgust that we could write such a thing, when she got home, she read it and burst out laughing - apparently he hadn't even bothered looking at the picture on the front and thought that we were being serious!!! LOL!!!
Fun Alternatives: Buy a quilt instead!

Miscellaneous: If you don't bring your own stamps, you can buy some here, because you'll be sending Intercourse Postcards to your silly friends, and to VirtualTourist headquarters.

Just south of Intercourse over the Pequea Creek on the Belmont Road is the Paradise Road Covered Bridge.
If you time it just right, you might get an Amish buggy crossing the bridge for a great photo op - take time to listen to the clip-clop of the horses' hooves crossing the bridge as the sound will almost transport you to another country and another time...
The Paradise Bridge is an excellent example of this historical type of bridge in the State that is recognised as its birthplace. At their heydey there were about 1500 in Pennsylvania alone in the 19th century. Today there are still 219 in Pennsylvania and Lancaster County has the most with 28 (even more than Madison County!).
