Pennsylvania Dutch Country

So the last post I wrote was primarily for a friend who wanted ideas about how to best get to a wedding upstate. Well, a couple of weeks ago I was en route to Bedford, PA, and found some gems along Interstate 78. They are totally worth seeking out, if you're anywhere in the vicinity.

Deitrich's Meats: Wow. An amazing shop where you can pick up all things Pennsylvanian (well, in the food world), and get yourself some very good meat products. Bring a cooler. It's just 4 minutes off the highway.

Roadside America: I never thought I'd care about a miniature village. We drove past this place, but something told me to turn back and go in. We even hesitated when we saw that it was $6 each. But we sucked it up and did it, and wow, it was epic. This is one guy's dream, and he spent over 30 years building it. Totally inspiring, and so fun for kids. They can press buttons and make things move inside the village.
