The peaceful town of York is a must-see for those interested in colonial heritage and Revolutionary War history. Surrounded by rolling countryside and Amish communities, downtown features architecture spanning two and a half centuries. The prudent city leaders preserved buildings that are now magnificent links to the city's past, chronicling its growth from "America's first capital" to a modern city. Don't miss the Colonial Courthouse, where the Continental Congress signed the Articles of Confederation in 1777, or the Central Market, where locals and visitors have shopped for more than a century. The Murals of York, an "open-air gallery" of paintings scattered throughout town, add historic significance and an artistic touch. York also serves as a gateway to Pennsylvania's most popular attractions; a short drive takes you to Lancaster, the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country. Golf, cycling, and kayaking on the Susquehanna River are readily available to the outdoors enthusiasts.
