What Bert Has To Say About Lancaster Metro Area

Lancaster is a manufacturing and commercial center in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Amish country. The city has dealt with unemployment issues at times, as some of its manufacturing base has disappeared, but a large hospitality industry and a diversified food processing industry remain. Downtown is older and has some historic interest. The area has also been helped by location, as it is close enough to major East Coast cities to attract small businesses, the self-employed and telecommuters looking for lower living costs and a small town lifestyle.
