"Where cows and people get along great!"
Where to start? Lancaster is one of the cleanest places you'll probably ever be. The saying "The grass is greener on the other side of the fence" completely applies except that it's true. Living here for a while, the thing I got appreciate the most was the greenery and the farms all around. Also because of all those farms, it's really not hard to get actual fresh produce. Another thing that is great is all the handmade things made by hipsters, locals and the Amish. In the downtown area is a piano that is attached to the ground and someone regularly comes and tunes. It's really old and many people have signed it and dated that piano to years back. It's a little distracting if you try to sit down and play it because of dry paint on the keys and all over. Still, it's an experience if you can find it. The streets downtown are little hard to walk with the cobblestone rock here and there, but anywhere else is fine. Also, the streets that aren't downtown are very windy and great to drive. There are people who take bicycles to work instead of driving and with the hills, it's great exercise. With this great opportunity though, you still have to exercise good judgment and caution. A friend of mine wasn't paying too much attention and was run over by a tractor. He's okay, just his arm is a little damage done permanently. Otherwise, the people are very friendly and there are a lot of kids around. The local parks offer lots of events and concerts along with fireworks occasionally.
