My husband and I, along with our nephew took our family vacation here this year and had a GREAT time. The area is becoming very commercialized from what we could find out. We still had a great trip. If anyone is into model trains, it made it much more appealing for my husband and nephew because we spent an entire... More

It's like using a "De Lorean" to go back in time and see how people lived. How they used to cook, dress, live ! I Recomend !

In this rural area, there is a population of 30,000 Amish people, of two religious sects. They are interesting and principled people- hard working and dedicated. Family life and principles come first. Just drive through the area and you'll see them and meet them in all the stores and shops and businesses in the area. You can't miss their distinctive... More

Being a fan of the 1980's movie Witness, I expected to see a certain way of life. While it was 'in the past', it still has technology which surprised me. We visited on a rainy day, which might not have helped.

Do definately check this out not far from washington dc and worth a look. Like going back in time. But lots of interesting touches of technology creeping in.

We have been coming to the PA Amish country for over 30 years. Explore the Amish Life style and their culture. This is a great trip whether you choose a weekend if you live close by or you can spend the week. I would advise to do your research so that you can have productive days. What to do and... More

The countryside is pretty but the old villages in the area (you know those famous ones) are not at all quaint or charming. And the restaurants are built for mobs. And the worse thing is that the air is permeated for miles by the strong smell of manure. I do not know what all the fuss is about. So you... More

We were mesmerized by the beauty of this countryside and farms. The Amish really do take pride in their hard work and it truly pays off. We stopped at Kauffmans Farmers market & grocery store in Bird In Hand and were pleased with the affordable prices and LOVED their fresh Apple Cider and so many other delicious goods and fresh...

We visited this place with questions in our mind. Why should anyone reject technology? What we saw was amazing. We understand that a) the population of this group is growing well b) they are not poor c) they are probably better than the rest of us in terms of helping each other d) they take care of their elderly In...
