Get ready to explore a living patchwork quilt of incredibly varied downtowns and colorful experiences. All of them connected by the Heritage Trail as it weaves its way through a thousand and one unique moments. You'll find hometowns where shop owners can still be found standing behind the counter. Country roads that lead buggies home to steaming bowls of mashed potatoes. And landscapes that capture the way each season brings new character to old favorites.

Discover how our heritage and culture has shaped our way of life—how our Amish communities bring a sense of peace to surrounding regions and how our RV industry has fueled our sense of adventure. Experience a visit along the Heritage Trail through our selection of photos and videos. And read what the locals have to say in our Insider Experts Blog.
