Baltimore Living

Best Day Trip From Baltimore

Lancaster, Pa.

It's best to do this day trip on a Friday, even better if it's the first Friday of the month. Arrive mid-afternoon to catch the Central Market, the country's oldest continuously running farmers market, where Amish vendors peddle grass-fed, free-range meats and the best fresh doughnuts. As that winds down, First Friday, which is active year-round, kicks into gear. In good weather, the streets are full of musicians, sculptures, and performers, and the art galleries, including the cutting-edge Infantree Gallery, always coordinate their opening receptions. We also recommend sampling the local fare, including Iron Hill's delicious menu and array of beers brewed on site, and Fenz's continental cuisine.
