We visited the Millersburg, Ohio area today. We spent most of our time in nearby Berlin, Ohio. A nice man took us for a ride in a buggy and gave us a little history lesson while we trotted around. We also had lunch at Boyd and Wurthmans'. Over the years the restaurant has gotten a bit touristy but the food... More

We decided at the last minute to take my mother-in-law to Amish country. We had not been before. Based upon the few hours we spent driving around, the shops & restaurants we visited we will be back. The roads were super fun to drive on & going to go back on the motorcycle. Also want to check out more shops.... More

I was born and raised in NE Ohio and lived in Columbus, Ohio for 25 years. I knew Holmes County and the area was filled with history and the Amish community, but never took the time to explore it. We drove from RT 76 Akron area to Orville, Oh and stopped at the Smucker's Gift Shop. Orville looks like a... More

I am on a two-year tour of the U.S. in a motorhome from CA to ME and back, and coming to Amish Country wasn't on my list of "To Do's." I was merely looking for a nice, roomy place to park for a while on my way south. What a find! I only intended to stay two nights at Scenic... More

We stayed in Berlin and visited Walnut creek several time on our trip. We visited when it was unseasonable cold for may so according to the locals it wasn't even busy yet and traffic was nuts in Berlin. It is best to learn back roads around downtown and park on the edges of town and walk through the shops. We... More

Quaint, quiet and very friendly. Cold and snowy when we visited so people wondering were at a minimal. Exactly what you would think Amish country would look and feel like. It is not over commercialized, so you get the real feeling to the area/community they live in. Drove around Sugar Creek, Berlin an Millersburg. Visited the Kauffman bakery and Heini's... More

I live in the area, so maybe I'm a bit tired of the whole thing. But, if you should come, try and stay off of 39 on the weekends. Hopefully your car has a GPS and you can travel the back roads and see some of the REAL Amish in the area. We try and hit several antique shops in... More

I recently traveled from Columbus, OH, to the Amish country in Ohio - along US-62 to Millersburg, Berlin, then along OH-39 to Sugarcreek. It is a very pleasant trip - the scenery is very beautiful, and all the Amish places are wonderful. There are some amazing cheese stores, like Heini's Cheese Chalet near Berlin and the Guggisberg Cheese Factory on... More
