  • 32. CONTEST PHOTO/HILIARY E. BOWER Multiple Destinations in One Region Visiting Central Pennsylvania is like 10 vacations all rolled into one. That’s because the Dutch Country Roads region is made up of many distinct areas that all have their own personalities and claims to fame. While the cities and towns are delightfully unique from one another, they are nestled close together, which means you can hop from place to place with ease. Come explore this curious little corner of the world – the perfect blend of old and new. Experience the Amish in all their traditional glory and then visit a science museum. Take a hike through the Blue Mountains, followed by night of fine dining and entertainment. Go shopping at a farmers market in the morning and at exclusive boutiques in the afternoon. See native bird species one minute and a Broadway-style show the next. All of these highlights would seem to be a world apart, but in the Dutch Country Roads region, they are all next-door to each other. With the collective goal of welcoming visitors and encouraging local residents to explore the many gems of the mid-state, several regional organizations have formed Dutch Country Roads. Together, the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau, the Franklin County Visitors Bureau, the Gettysburg Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Greater Reading Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Bureau, the Lebanon County Tourist Bureau, the Pennsylvania Dutch Convention & Visitors Bureau and the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau make up the Dutch Country Roads initiative. And together, they welcome you to the region! For more information, visit: dutchcountryroads.com Hershey Harrisburg Regional Visitors Guide : hersheyharrisburg.org 31
