Adams County, Pennsylvania Known as the largest producer of apples in the Commonwealth, Adams County carries the nickname of Apple Capital USA. 20,000 of its acres are dedicated to production of all kinds of fruit. From late spring to late fall fruit lovers line the numerous farmers markets for the freshest in-season fruit.

And, had history been different, that is all this quiet, quaint Pennsylvania county would have been known for. However, on June 30, 1863 a few men from Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia met a few men from Meade's Army of the Potomac and the history of the world changed with the battle at Gettysburg.

Franklin County, Pennsylvania Welcome to Franklin County, a part of the beautiful Cumberland Valley, located in Southcentral Pennsylvania, with easy access from major highways. The Cumberland Valley region stretches from Carlisle, Pennsylvania to Winchester, Virginia. There's something for everyone: fairs, festivals and lots of fun, unique antique shops and specialty shops, historic areas, golfing, hunting, fishing, skiing, professional theaters and more.

Because of its strategic location in the heart of the Cumberland Valley, the area was the target of three major Confederate cavalry raids: Stuart 1862, Jenkin 1863, and McCausland 1864, as well as one full-scale invasion, the Gettysburg Campaign of 1863. These events incurred severe destruction and economic hardship on the population. The final visitation by McCausland's cavalry left the county seat, Chambersburg, a smoldering ruin, the only northern town burned by regular Confederate forces during the war. At least 19 separate military engagements, most of them skirmishes, occurred in the county. This is more than any other county in the north. Explore our heritage, enjoy our countryside.

Lancaster County Lancaster County was created on May 10, 1729, from part of Chester County and named for Lancashire, England. Lancaster, the county seat, named for its England counterpart, was laid out in 1730. It was chartered as a borough on May 1, 1742, and as a city on March 10, 1818.

The best non-irrigated farmland in the world brought the Amish here to settle. And you can experience their plain lifestyle as you wander through Eastern Lancaster County and marvel at a people who survive in today's world without telephones or electricity.

Visit our historical sites. A one-time capital of the United States, home of the Conestoga covered wagon and Kentucky rifle which opened the West for settlement, Lancaster has a lot of history to explore. Or come shop our hundreds of outlet stores where you can stock up for Christmas (and every other holiday for that matter) with quality goods from around the country.

Perry County, PennsylvaniaPerry County, originally part of Cumberland County, became the 51st county in Pennsylvania on March 22, 1820 and is named for Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry, the American hero of the naval engagement with the British on Lake Erie in the War of 1812. Part of the Appalachian Mountain Region, Perry County is bordered on the north, west and south by the Tuscarora, Conococheaque and Blue Mountains. On the east Perry County is bordered by 28 miles of the Susquehanna River.

The county's forests and woodlands are recognized as exceptional hunting areas, especially for whitetail deer, turkey and squirrel. The steams, rivers and Lake Holman at Little Buffalo State Park provide excellent fishing sites for trout, bass and muskie.

Hunters, fisherman and other visitors can stop at the mountain overlooks-scenic wonders of Perry County-or explore the many historical sites in the county. Fourteen covered bridges and seventeen old mills are scattered throughout the county, which is also dotted with antique and gift shops. Get away from the hustle and bustle. Come see the mountains in the spring when they come alive. Or the summer, when the fish are jumping. The foliage in the fall is simply outstanding and you haven't seen anything until you've seen Perry County blanketed by snow in the winter.
