Speaking of Lititz, PA... My familiy is considering a move to Lititz. Any comments on whether or not this is a nice place to raise a family?

So we finally took a ride out to Lancaster County yesterday, and it sure is true about the "stress melts away" once you get out there. Very peaceful and to have to slow down behind a horse and buggy...very calm atmosphere. We went to Gap, thinking the Mud sale would be neat but not knowing it is almost strictly auction- not really anything to just buy. Went to Bird in Hand and Intercourse, but whoa, so touristy! (like me, I know But I was hoping to find a place that is not clogged with tourists. Almost all of the shops are geared towards tourists- and they were out in full force. Are there alternatives or are all of the small towns taking advantage of curiosity seekers and taking over the streets with souvenir shops? I can't imagine that the Amish people appreciate this- anyone know more about it? You almost have to envy this different lifestyle- really appears to be less stressful and just..calm.

The town of Quarryville at the crossroad of 472 and 372 and 222 you have a medium size town less tourist stuff Goods store closed on sundays. There are a few restaurants Quarryville Family and Lapps and 2 out door ice cream shops Just stop by Dottie's for a cheeseburger and fires or and Ice-cream. on 222 just north of Good store. Take the back and side road and if you get lost (keep a map handy) if you see some one out in there yard stop and ask directions to the nearest major road and you will be fine. There are lost new homes in this area mixed with Amish farms more progressive amish then most people think most have phones about 100 feet from there homes in little booths, and they have gas refrigerators and freezers and sometimes you see they out using the barbecue grill instead inside using the gas stove and ovens.

Willow street on 272 and 222 is a spread out town just out side the city of Lancaster with the Willow Valley Resort and small strip mall go east and west of there to find more rural areas.
