bucky,
We are leaving on Friday Sept 15 and coming back Tuesday, Sept 19. Does that coincide with your trip? Wouldn't that be funny to meet up with a DCer in Lancaster?

Also we are going to the day out with Thomas. This is probably the last year we would have an opportunity to do this with my son.

vagriller, i guess your son is getting embarrassed at how you jump out of the car and run to the train, pushing other excited dads out of the way.

this is going to be our first year seeing thomas. i think we're going around the 23rd or so. making the reservations tonight.

and thanks vickiq! i'm going to see if the have any cars left. i doubt it considering the event, but thanks very much for the info all the same.

bucky,
That's funny! I thought rooms would be cheaper around that area. I guess when you want a suite you pay more.

You need to make "creamed" or stewed corn from fresh corn. It is an entirely different "animal". I freeze quarts of it every summer for the winter.

You may be lucky to get them this late, even mid-week.

Yes I agree. When we were looking at tickets a month ago they were selling out fast. But we were looking on the weekend. Definitely get your Thomas tickets immediately!

The Eden Resort is very nice - they have regular hotel rooms & then suites that are like condos. 2 stories tall with high ceilings - full kitchen. Jacuzzi in the upstairs bedroom.

Bube's Brewery? The locals are not real thrilled with the place anymore. If you are looking for a micro-brewery, go downtown: to L.B.C.
http://www.lancasterbrewing.com/

Markets - they're all over the place on the weekends. The original one is downtown - in the square. http://server1.fandm.edu/departments...Site/FSet.html

Get off the beaten path in the Eastern end to find farm stands at Amish farms. Best corn, etc. that you will ever find at a price you won't believe! (Strasburg is at the Eastern end.)

A couple places I will go when I'm down there again:

http://www.intercoursecanning.com/ I spent a pile of money there in the Spring.

http://www.shady-maple.com/ Great market & smorgasbord.

http://www.ameliasgroceryoutlet.com/ Food stuff cheap, cheap, cheap!
