The essential guide to the Athens of America

Laura Randall brings readers the best of Philadelphia and the outlying Amish Country, one of America’s most historically and culturally rich regions. Travelers seeking fine dining, authentic cuisine, sightseeing, or a world-class arts scene will find this guide indispensable in making the best of their stay in the City of Brotherly Love.

Recommendations for shopping, eating, lodging, and touring will excite visitors of all tastes. From natural areas and historic neighborhoods in and around Philadelphia to the Amish markets of Lancaster County, from historic battlefields at Valley Forge and Gettysburg to the antiques shops of Bucks County, and the leisure resorts and quiet nature trails of the Pocono Mountains, this guide (previously published as Explorer’s Guide Eastern Pennsylvania: Includes Philadelphia, Gettysburg, Amish Country & the Poconos) offers great guidance for a unique, fascinating destination.
