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

We went to Hershey for the lights and stayed over in Lancaster. drove around to see the scenery on Sunday. Most places were closed. We will be going back in the spring. My college girls loved seeing the young people out driving in their buggy's on Sunday.

I enjoyed my time in Amish country. There is something very peaceful about the Amish people. I especially liked visiting their markets for fresh produce and food. Everything was delicious. I took a buggy ride and had a great conversation with my Amish driver. He shed some insight on their lifestyle. While this life is not for everybody, sometimes it's... More

If coming to Lancaster County, please drive carefully, slowly, and respectfully. Share the road and please do not pass Horse n Buggies on dangerous hills or curves. Please do not rev your motorcycle or vehicle while passing a buggy. November thru March is Amish Wedding season, every Tuesday and Thursday. Buggy traffic is at an all time high especially during...

We signed up for the Supersaver Tour which includes the Amish Farmlands Tour, AMISH EXPERIENCE Theater, Amish Country Homestead & Schoolroom and Buggy ride. It provides a good understand of the Amish culture and story. The tour guide is doing a great job by showing us the houses, identifying which are Amish and their daily activities.
