Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

York refers to itself as the factory capital of America. The population is dispersed across the sprawling metro area as more affordable apartments are being built in the city.

The Greater Hanover Fire Museum follows the history of the local fire department and showcases gear and fire engines from over 200 years of history. The Miniature Railroad Club of York is a very popular club among seniors who share an interest in model trains. The National Watch and Clock Museum showcases timepieces spanning from the earliest days of recorded history to modern innovations in time keeping. The Eastern Museum of Motor Racing has a huge collection of vintage race cars and racing memorabilia and is conveniently located near the BAPS Motor Speedway where many races are held.

Transportation

The public transportation in York is called Rabbit Travel.

Their most valuable routes are the express buses that will take you to the connecting transit system in Towson, the Baltimore Light RailLink portion of the Maryland Transit Administration. The roads are a bit rough though and the public transit isn’t exactly comprehensive so other forms of private transportation methods are preferable.
