Teri, Thanks for the compliment. We produce 99% of all photography you see on our blog. We are proud to show off the beauty of Lancaster county Pennsylvania. For more pictures posts about Lancaster, view our sidebar of links. 

Bill, thanks we think so too. Low crime, great schools and mild weather (never really gets over 100 or under 32), coupled with the numerous attractions such as dutch wonderland, hershey park, the outlet stores off route 30 etc, all make Lancaster County Pennsylvania a great place to live. We'll touch more on these other things as we progress through our 20 part series.

Kimo, that's because they limit the amount of new growth in residential, industrial and commercial sectors. There have been years when no new residential zoning was allowed. This is typical for manheim township. If this wasn't the case then it would look much like orange county, ca by now. Thanks for stopping by. How's hawaii? we're guessing it hasn't changed much either :)
