New Homes in Lancaster, PA

You don't hear about Lancaster too much, but that's because residents want to preserve the city's peace, quiet, and famously good quality of life. Where else in the US can you get fresh produce, historic buildings, many lovely natural parks, and friendly people? And all in one city? Lancaster residents don't have to compromise anything they want in order to live here.

Although still unknown to Pennsylvania home buyers, Lancaster is known to at least one segment of the population: the foodies! This is the home of the Lancaster Central Market, the oldest public market in the country. It's not just about the food, either. For 275 years, this has been the social epicenter of this region of southeastern Pennsylvania. Great conversations with old friends and neighbors are probably the market's primary product. However, you'll also find produce, meat (including plenty of sausage, as this is a German area), bread, cheese, candy, and coffee. In recent years the market has gone international-- look for Thai and Greek food among the stalls, as well as traditional German food.

The market couldn't thrive in a vacuum. Lancaster on the whole is business-friendly. Its spirit of entrepreneurship evidently survived all the way to the present day. Not just in the form of the Central Market, but also in all the companies now headquartered in Lancaster, which include map giant MapQuest, Auntie Anne's, Armstrong World Industries, and Kunzler and Company. This is good news if you're looking for a job or starting a business. A strong local economy will propel Lancaster into the future, even as it preserves the best of the past. If you want to boost the local economy in a fun way, go shopping! Your best bet is Tanger Outlets, home of your favorite stores, like Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Calvin Klein, J. Crew, Talbots, Nautica, and Nike.

Of course, you can't go shopping every weekend. Luckily, there's still plenty to do in Lancaster that doesn't involve your credit card. For instance, historic downtown Lancaster makes a great walking tour. Perhaps you'll pass two of downtown Lancaster's museums. The first is the North Museum of Natural History and Science, the second is the kid-friendly Lancaster Science Factory. These museums will help you see the big picture: Lancaster's future, as well as its distant past.

For the artistically-inclined, there's always Gallery Row and the Demuth Art Museum. Among the gems you'll find here are the works of painter Christiane David, mixed-media genius and Lancaster native son Freiman Stoltzfus, and the combined work of other Lancaster artists in the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen. With so many Amish people living in the Lancaster area, the "lost" arts of craftsmanship are not so lost here. The city's art scene is the better for it.
