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.

The challenge here is to observe a very devout and unusual way of life without being drawn into any of the imitations. Do your homework online and avoid anything touristy. Enjoy driving around to see the farms being worked and the buggies on the road. There are some authentic smorgasbords with delicious food. Be respectful of the people and don't... More

52 seniors descended upon Lancaster, Pa. as we traveled the New England States. The Amish Village was one of our stops for a tour and lunch. Our guide was wonderful as he explained the "Amish" culture and guided us through the country side. We thoroughly enjoyed the area and experience. We were able to participate in an Amish wedding (re-enactment)... More
