Intercourse, Pennsylvania
  Marietta Travel News ( Press Release )

A town with a name like this is worth the visit!

Surrounded by rolling hills and Amish farmlands, explore the town of Intercourse for a true taste of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. With attractions such as the Amish, Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania and great outlet shopping, it is the perfect getaway spot for Valentine's.

How did this small town acquire its name? There are many versions and all quite innocent. Formerly known as "Cross Keys" from a noted old tavern, this village was founded in 1754. The first version centers around an old track, which existed east of the town. Some say that during the days of the racecourse, a sign at the entrance read "Enter Course."

Others believe that the name came from the fact that it is the intersection of two roads and the word "course" is a synonym for road or track. Still others say that the name may have come from the old language during the early days of the village. The word "intercourse" was commonly used to describe "fellowship," "social interaction" and "friendship."

Regardless, Intercourse is inspiration for romance full of country treasures and friendly folks, nestled in scenic Amish farmlands.
