New Holland is also the name of a town in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.

The town was named such because the original settlers had sought refuge in Holland before coming to America.

New Holland is about 15 miles northeast of Lancaster (city) on state route 23 and a miles southwest of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

As with most of Lancaster County, there's a large presence of Amish and Mennonites in New Holland.

New Holland has numerous bed and breakfasts and quaint shops and restaurants. It's a good place to go to escape the sometimes massive crowds of tourists in the county.
