Relaxing place to visit.

We visit twice a year to get away from city life. Amish food and the farmers markets are reason enough to visit. There is so much to see and do.

Wonderful experience learning about a people group in Western Society clearly living distinct lives from the rest of the western world. Purchasing merchandise made from Amities was a cool experience, served by a ten year old. Feeding pellets for pony .25c per handful was fun too. Careful if you are an allergy sufferer though as my daughter had a strong... More

This is where I live. A very easy way of life. The Amish are hard workers. Come and see.... They make wonderful homemade Jellies,jams,honey,and quilts. They also made very good quality wood furniture and other items.

We have been traveling to the Amish Country for many, many years now and always enjoy our time. We have one favorite restaurant that is highly recommended I hate to say because they are becoming too busy and popular due to their genuine food & service

This visit was very informative and interesting. We toured round the house and our guide explained how the Amish live and work, there were a lot of original items and the guide answered all our questions. What an amazing place and such lovely friendly people. Lots to see

We decided to visit on our way back from New England, and I'm very glad we did. Susan, the lady at Lancaster Visitor Centre was a great ambassador for the area and has a fountain of knowledge about the area. She made excellent recommendations for our day in the area, including the Ressler family home and farm, which will make... More

It was awesome to see how in today's world there are people who live in a by-gone era - simple habits, sound values and devoutness play a major role in their lifestyle.

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
