First visit to Amish country so glad we looked up the location on Tripadvisor beforehand! I thoroughly recommend the area but agree with all who point out that the attractions along the main road from Lancaster through Bird-in-Hand to Intercourse are very um....touristy and to see the area that we expected to see we left it and headed into the...

If you want a get away that brings you back to a lighter happier time, then Lancaster is the place. I love visiting here and going to Miller's, staying at the steamboat Inn and shopping the outlets. It's so beautiful and just a lovely two day trip for all. Their light theatre is a best kept secret as well. I... More

My wife and I love Ronk's Pa. as a beautiful peaceful place to enjoy the farm animals and horse drawn Amish carts. We love spending time with local farmers and always enjoy their markets and witnessing the simple lifestyles. We have even gone to an Amish church on sunday and were truly blessed by it. Not for city folks who... More

First time visiting the Amish country, we thought we would see local crafts and hand made antiques. Just your typical commercial stores and made in China junk. We also went puppy hunting, due to the web site Greenfield puppies. Well, just Google Amish puppy mills and you will find what we saw. These are horrible people. I'm speechless. Never support...

Very relaxing and beautiful county. Something for everybody to see and do. Visit the Railroad Museum in Strasburg. Eat at Katies near Strasburg. Shop at the OUTLETs.

We took a large group of students there this past week and enjoyed the two days spent in Amish Country. From the Amish Experience, to the buggy rides and onto all the great foods we had, this was an awesome experience. We really enjoyed the fact that their lifestyle is so different then ours, yet very unique and very cool.... More

We sent for a visitors guide of Lancaster County PA and tried to take full advantage of the sites listed. You need several days to do the beautiful area justice. The farmsteads you will see as you drive are neat. I loved seeing the neat gardens and the laundry hung on clothes lines running from the houses to an out... More

When one thinks of Amish Country, PA, hopefully it is not because of those Discovery Channel shows depicting "actual Amish People!" Nothing could be further from the truth. If you want to take a step back and relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of country life then this is definitely a trip for you. From bucolic country sides, to... More

Its a different way of life. Some innovations are unique and interesting indeed. Quietly displayed. I love old farm equipment, so it was a treat for me.The needlecraft on display and sale is excellent. Remember to buy some bread, preserves or souvenirs. I bought a cook book as the farm fresh food would have not lasted the transatlantic flight!

Amazing experience even if it's only for a few days. Take some side roads and you will see many horse and nights, amish people , and farms. Be sure to go to Jessica's and Aaron's buggy rides (take the one hour it's worth it). And make sure to go to the amish village tour. They take you to an ex... More
