I was so desperate to get out and see the Mural Mile before we left Philadelphia this morning, I set my alarm for 6:30am just to make sure I’d have ample time to do the whole walk. I was also hoping to find the Mosaic Garden I’d read about from a clipping stuck up in the lift.
On waking I found the weather to be even worse …
... 8.30am tour tomorrow morning of a couple of working Amish farms and we need to have had breakfast, packed the car and checked out by then.
Tomorrow afternoon it's off to Washington DC for Monday and Tuesday night, then Wednesday and Thursday night it's a couple of nights on the road (with a stop at the Richard petty Motorsports shop in Charlotte), followed by Friday Saturday and Sunday in Savannah. Busy week coming ...
... we were traversing Upstate New York. Still very green, but a different type of landscape, more hills than mountains.
We got off the interstate prior to getting to Harrisburg, and wove our what through a few small towns. Bec wonder if the GPS had a setting in it somewhere for visiting every crack street in the States because again we seemed to find the dodgy end of town. We did go through a nice little town just out of Lancaster called Lititz that looked ...
... We picked up some great coffee, and breakfast straight from an Amish farmer and sat outside in the sun,, listening to a fellow with many instruments, attached to him, play some wonderful old tunes. A great way to start the day. Lancaster appeared to be a very artistic town with theatres and around the city pianos have been placed for anyone in the community's to sit down and playing when they want to . Our next stop was at the tourist bureau ...
... to have ourselves a good old log fire cook up.
J's ingenious plan was also to cook some tomato soup, which he achieved by stripping off the outer paper packaging on the tin and carefully lowering the tin into the embers with a pair of tongs that he'd paid about 4 bucks for for this one specific job.
After heroically shrugging off all the people who laughed at him, said he couldn't do it, said he was mad to try and bbq soup, J lifted his molten hot ...

Family fun aboard the Steamboat
Some friends recommended this hotel to us. We are happy they did because it was just great! It was extremely kid-friendly and was centrally located to restaurants, attractions, outlet malls (Rockvale across the street).
The rooms and decor really made you feel you were on a real steamboat.
My daughter danced along with the music playing in the hallways!
There is a farm adjacent to the property and the hotel's grounds are just breathtaking...
Take a ride on the steamboat and enjoy!!!
Our family travels to Lancaster all the time and has always wanted to try to Steamboat. So, I called for reservations for Saturday August 23. I was told that there was a 2-night minimum so I said "Ok" I will reserve for the 22nd and the 23rd. Reserationist took all the info - confirmed dates/room type/etc and gave me conf #. A few days later called back to re-confirm and to add a roll a way bed. When we arrived at the hotel on the evening of the 22nd we were told we only had a reservation for the 23rd. I said, "no - you have a 2 night minimum and I am confirmed for the 22nd and 23rd". They were EXTREMELY rude and told me I had no reservation and they were full. When I inquired for a manager - there was none available - when I inquired what they intended to do they gave no assistance. I finally had to get on my cell phone - find another hotel of lesser quality for more money and go there. When I asked what compensation I might get for this I was told they did not owe me anything because the reservationist did not "remember making the reservation" so it was not their fault. I called 2 times over the weekend for the manager but was continually told there was no one available. I will NEVER stay there again and strongly suggest that anyone who values service do not do so either. They were rude, unhelpful and a discredit to the usual Amish Country politeness.
Flair in lancaster
The steamboat was very nice if I knew it was so nice would have booked for a couple of days only stayed one night. Next trip kids will be going the pool will be enjoyed by both kids. Would highly recommend price was very reasonable for area.
Nice stay at the Steamboat
Just returned from PA, stayed two nights at the Fulton Steamboat. Very clean, nice pool area and nice rooms. Also very quiet even though lots of kids around (including our own)! Had a wonderful Christmas dinner for a reasonable price. The dining room staff was great, housekeeping gave us extra pillows and towels on the spot when asked. I had called ahead for reservations and total check-in time was probably 5 minutes. We got a great rate off the Steamboat's website. Although when I called for reservations, the person that took my call said she didn't know what the dining room hours were or even if they would be open.
I have never stayed at this place---nor will I EVER stay here now. My parents have been wanting to try it, so I ordered a gift certificate from them (as a X-Mas present). I received the bill in the mail two days later and NO gift certificate. Trying to rectify this matter with management is impossible. Employees at the hotel kept telling me to give it a couple of more days...maybe it's "late." I kept explaining it's now only a couple of days until X-Mas---could they please reissue and fedex a new one, so that I could have it in time. until today, (Dec. 22) I have not received this and management's response has been reprehensible. They continue to tell me to wait (first it was until Saturday, now---until Monday)---that they cannot reissue another one (for reasons which make no sense)---and they make seem like I'm the one at fault. They are completely unapologetic...even condescending and nasty...and unwilling to work with you when they are at fault. I then told them I wanted to the certificate as I am now completelt turned off---and I was told to call back---that the manager needed to do it---and I was hung up on ---TWICE!!! I am going to tell everyone and anyone who will listen not to stay at this hotel. I'm sure it's nice---but the employees and manager are sure NOT.
These other reviews are completely untrue. I stay at the Fulton Steamboat every time I go to Lancaster. Every time I go I find that they have added something or renovated something to be better than it was before.
My family and I have stayed at the Fulton Steamboat Inn several times over that past four years, and we had always been more than satisfied with the accomodations, cleanliness and the atmosphere of this unique inn.
I have been to this place many times over the years, and, unfortunately I don't think I could go there again. It's a shame because it's such a cute and charming hotel, plus it has large rooms and an indoor pool.
This place is aboslutely amazing. I stay in Lancaster quite often with my family. This is a great place for kids. Very Clean.
