Be a local
Due to its early British influence, most locals pronounce the city name as “LANK-iss-ter” instead of its usual American pronunciation of “LAN-kast-er.”

Did you know? The first paved road in the U.S. was the former Philadelphia and Lancaster Turnpike, which now is present-day U.S. Route 30. Instead of using the word pavement or asphalt, Lancaster residents use the word “macadam” in reference to the paving process named by turnpike designer MacAdam.
