Many years ago (circa 1975), I made my first auto trip to Amish country & Gettysburg. We discovered (at restaurant check-outs) a fantastic way to self-tour the area: recorded tapes (& tape players if needed) that you would start playing as you left the restaurant, then follow the directions on the tape. They would describe the areas you were passing by, "telling the story" of what you were seeing. If you hadn't reached the next turn, you would turn off the tape until you got there, then resume playing. You could stop to visit anywhere along the way for as long as you wanted! We enjoyed using these tapes in both areas!
I'm wondering if there is still anything like this available today? We were in the area a couple of years ago & took the bus trips, which we enjoyed, but I'd like to try the self-tours again, as the person I'm traveling with hasn't done it that way (& isn't too excited about repeating the bus trip.)
