As an example: we really like Pirateland, Old Orchard beach, and Normandy Farms. So you can see we like to visit places that have lots of things to do.
Thank you everyone
Since it's my home, I'm prejudiced, but I like Lancaster. There are more great campgrounds here than you can shake a stick at, and there are really wonderful family attractions, as Robmat already mentioned.
Gettysburg is great, too, but may not have quite as many attractions as Lancaster. The Gettysburg Battlefield is not to be missed, and it's only about 60 miles from Lancaster.
Good luck, and we'll look forward to seeing you!
