Y for A-Z Challenge

 Y-York Pa.

I might just have to go here....

 Yes they have lots of history and a downtown area full of really old buildings like this 1700 Tavern
and they have a HUGE corn maze
 17 acres if cornfields all for adventure.

 Amish buggy rides
 The Renihasne Fair
 The Shrewsbury Village
 and the "The Shoe House, built in 1948, that was "Colonel" Mahlon N. Haines' most outlandish advertising gimmick. It is a wood frame structure covered with wire lath and coated with a cement stucco. It measures 48 ft. in length, 17 ft. in width at the widest part and 25 ft. in height. The interior consists of five different levels and contains three bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen and living room."
but it's not these that would draw me......... but rather the fact that York is the Factory Tour Capitol of the World.
 Painted Springs Alpaca Farm
 Bluett Bros Violins
 Macklin's Cafe with their speciality cupcakes
 The Surprise Soap Company
Miss Lucy's Dog Treats
The Prancing Pig
and a whole list of more like  Martin's potato chips , Harley Davidson factory, Naylor wine Cellar, Revonah Pretzels, Susquehamma Glass, Family Heir-loom weavers and etc.
 Well, one of my favorite things to do is take a behind the scenes tour so this is going on my
 Happy Trails

Of course you tricked me again. Thought sure you would pick Yuma for "Y". Love knowing about York. Sounds like they've got it all.

We didn't know about York when we were in PA. Looks like we'll have to add it to our list of places to go. Thanks for sharing!
