I've traveled to Philly enough to not trust the traffic when timing matters (unless you know the back roads well enough to avoid the traffic). We took the train last month when we flew out of PHL. You could do:
Total travel time: 2hr 17m.
Total trip cost = $36 (times two for your return trip)
If you do decide to still drive, don't forget to get a groupon for parking at PHL!
The Mahoning Drive-In is about two hours away, but they offer some great cult and classic film weekends, and they allow camping. There’s a great documentary made by a Lancaster filmmaker about their revival from a few years back, At the Drive-In.
You might consider hitting Shady Maple smorgasbord for breakfast one day. It's worth hitting once just for the experience. You might not see so much food in one setting again for quite a while. And remember, you asked for touristy things. I'd personally shop downtown some, there are plenty of fun things to do in the area in general. Maybe this link would help? http://www.tripadvisor.com/Tourism-g1732735-Lancaster_County_Pennsylvania-Vacations.html
I have made many whoppie pies, the process feels like you’re doing it wrong, you’re basically pouring cake batter into cookie shapes on a flat pan, but you have to trust that it’s going to work out.
I used this book for mix and match inspiration and I’ve been very pleased with its info: Whoopie Pies : Dozens of Mix 'em, Match 'em, Eat 'em Up Recipes https://www.amazon.com/dp/0811874540/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_JGP0PQH79M4YVJDAHZ7E
I haven't tried any whoopie pie recipes, but if you wanna get in the spirit of PA Dutch cooking, check out this cookbook: Mennonite Community Cookbook. It's my go-to. Also, don't buy it on Amazon, you can find it in just about any local bookstore, the amazon link was just the easiest way to share!

Are you suggesting the good people of this city would just...randomly leave their car in a lane of traffic? flip their 4-ways on and leave it there for everyone to go around?
Lots of trails. The number 1 hobby for Pennsylvanians a few years ago was hiking. Governor Dick has some ok trails with some steep uphills, the Central Park has a few good trails especially in the Kiwanis area. Check out alltrails and search the area. We also have the Appalachian trail close by, but if you camp on the AT in PA make sure you hike through the game lands...you’re not allowed to do an out and back with camping overnight, you have to have a destination that is different than your start.
Yes it is. I didn’t know what it was either for a while. I happened to come across it one day, and use it every once in awhile to see what’s going on around the neighborhood. Here is the link to the guy who was looking for a pair..

I wish I could take them, however I adopted a pair a year ago. I wish you luck on finding them a home!
There is an amazing cabin on Air BnB in Ricketts Glen for pretty cheap. It's close to the only restaurant/bar and really close to beautiful water falls!
Here's the listing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/10333879?s=rs_mgv0o
silantra (downtown) has vegan options; Trio out on columbia ave has vegan a couple options; Upohar is all vegetarian with a lot of vegan options. And as someone else mentioned, Tivoni on Rohrstown/741 near 30 is all vegan. I think the fridge also has vegan pizza, and we all know how awesome their beer selection is! PJ Welihans has the "beyond burger" which is vegetarian, but not sure if it's vegan.
For things to do:
Anacana, a trio of musicians is playing at ABAG tomorrow night. Leo DiSanto is playing @ Bert's Bottle shop (millersville) tomorrow night as well. Zoetroplis is always fun to go to, especially paired with beer tasting at Columba Kettle works 2nd gear right there. Groupon has a 50% off deal for tours at Thistle Finch.
Drive down to Pine Dairy and pet the baby cows outside.
If they want to do super touristy stuff, Kitchen Kettle Village is cute (and mostly outdoors, so bundle up). The Amish Farm is also touristy, and of course shopping at the outlets can be fun.
Stockyard Inn is hiring a line cook. They are a pretty upscale restaurant and the food is pretty good.
Hey a couple of things. First, I went to your website that you have linked on Amazon when I was looking for alternate places to buy it before you responded. On your home page there is Order Now "Paperback & Ebook on Amazon" which obviously links to Amazon. Then there is the "Other Places to Order". That takes you to another page that has the YouTube video and then a link to buy it at Amazon. I figured you likely meant to put the site you linked above.
Second, when I try to use the link above I have gotten the following error with my Capital One and Chase Credit cards:
"Your card was declined. Your request was in test mode, but used a non test (live) card. For a list of valid test cards, visit: https://stripe.com/docs/testing. "
So I just ordered it from Amazon. Looking forward to it. You may very likely change my opinion on sci-fi. Again, I likely need to reframe my thoughts on sci-fi. It's not all Star Trek, lol.
Hey, I'm looking for Lancaster gamers and this seemed like a good place to start. My nonprofit is having a fundraiser this weekend at Six Feet Under Games in New Holland. 3 days of RPG goodness for $30 and all profits go to The Bodhana Group to help reduce the impact of sexual abuse on children and families. Check if out at: https://sites.google.com/site/thebodhanagroup/events/save-against-fear
Maybe! Is this your cat?
It's not exactly right, but have you checked out this cookbook that came out recently called Homage: Recipes and Stories from an Amish Soul Food Kitchen by Chris Scott? Might be able to pick up some cool ideas.
Unwrapping Historic Downtown Lancaster is good. And the Heritage of Lancaster Countyis the best for county history.
Haven't been to the Pressroom-- my wife and I have a gift card that we've been holding onto for a post-pandemic date, guess that's a bust.
Anyway, I highly recommend 78 Red Spicy Ketchup. We happened upon it in a restaurant on vacation several years ago, and have kept some in our fridge ever since.
Overcrowding and disrespectful use.
I've been going there since the early 90's. Used to be that you'd never see another person there. Recently, 160 different cars visited the preserve in a single day.
It's still accessible, but not easily, and not from River Rd. You need to go in through the Conestoga Trail.
Definitely come out! Feel free to show up any time -- trivia itself is from 8 until about 9:30.
Here's photos from one of the trivia nights so you have some faces to look for in case we're not at the normal table: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipOlUeveenzl1GtQJqNBp9pRa7GuarHBMub_FcBlqhTuYv8SymeeX0j0epDGUZsqFg?key=TG1qWGRfcDNmODRhblJTb3YyaGNnVFp2OVBEZnln
I'm wondering what you think of when you ask whether or not a pocket knife is a weapon or not. I wonder if you're thinking of a Swiss Army Knife aka a multi-tool or if you're thinking of an actual pocket knife. A pocket knife is absolutely a weapon.
Do you have a second computer available? You can try creating a Linux Live USB (https://unetbootin.github.io/) and try to boot that. If that fails then it's most likely hardware related.
parking separated is better for weak cyclists who generally go much slower than traffic. but it's super bad for stronger cyclists, who get cut off by cars and crash or get t-boned by cars all the time. It sucks bad, I just watched somebody get hit on saturday. I personally never go down any parking separated lanes I'd rather ride in the road.
Buffered/regular bike lanes are the best for stronger cyclists who can keep up with traffic. You get the lane you need and you get seen.
These all have problems.
Parking separated bike lanes encourage pedestrians to use the space.
Buffered bike lanes w/o barriers + "Bike lane" are often filled with parked / double-parked cars & trucks.
Sharrows don't make people "Feel safe".
A little bit of paint on the ground isn't infrastructure.
This doesn’t answer your question, but I have a dash cam that runs off USB. It was really easy to setup and came with a 12v to USB.

I recommend this: https://www.amazon.com/Keystone-Fly-Fishing-Ultimate-Pennsylvanias/dp/1934753459, it discusses both streams. Some Lititz run spots require a membership with the Donegal TU chapter, which I'm actually just now getting around to (I'm kind of new to the area too).
