Part candy shop & part free elephant museum Mister Ed’s has something for everyone. There is a fun outdoor garden area and woods you can walk through. The elephant museum is bigger and better then ever, and they have a really fun selection of candy. Located in Orrtanna, PA (this is between Chambersburg & Gettysburg PA) they are open every day, and worth a stop in your ever find yourself in the area!
The day had been calling for scattered rain showers so we weren’t sure what to expect, but it turned into a beautiful clear day.
Lake Tobias was started in 1965 by JR Tobias, and his wife still lives in a farmhouse on the property. Our favorite part of the trip was the safari tour. You ride in an open top bus across 150 acres of beautiful hills on a one hour tour. There are all kinds of animals that greet you from alpaca, emu, bison, to water buffalo.
There is also a petting zoo, reptile house, and a section of the park set up like a more typical zoo. It was a nice way to wrap us to wrap up the Summer with one last road trip.
