My husband and I went to Amish Country. We made our own peanut butter. We had a wonderful time in the shops. My husband enjoyed all the hand made furniture, and he thought this place was only for women. LOL It is very busy on Saturdays, so plan a week day trip for less congestion. Still all in all a...

Also the bakery is a place to be, you can drink tea or coffee and they have very nice donuts or cheesecake bread etc. When you are in this aerie than you must go... More

If you want to see the Amish, your in the right place. They are everywhere and visiting gives you a chance to see them mingle with your normal "Englishers". Amish country is about eating and shopping, don't expect much else. Learn about the Amish before you go. Its much better to appreciate them when you know about them first. For... More

Rolling hills, beautiful farms, first-rate bakeries, cheese shops, butchers. This has been one of my favorite destinations for years. And now that I've returned to Ohio, it is an area I look forward to re-discovering. Amazing growth in kitschy tourism since my last visit but I'll just ignore all that and appreciate a wonderful, peaceful part of my home state.

Fun to travel around to all the different towns in Ohio Amish country. Walnut Creek,Charm,Berlin,Sugarcreek and Millersburg are all good for shopping or just for observing. We live close to Amish in Indiana(third largest in US)so seeing buggies was nothing new for us. Much hillier than Indiana and a lot of beautiful farm scenery. Great area for someone who has... More

In June, we enjoyed a lovely day's drive throughout Walnut Creek, Charm, Millersburg. Drive slowly, go into the shops, be respectful, ask questions. The Mennnonite and Amish are friendly and welcoming. At one of the markets, we asked a young wife if she would show us her buggy and how it drives. She was kind and friendly, explaining why she...

We go to the Sugarcreek area a few times a year. We get Googisburg Swiss cheese at their factory and enjoy driving around the area. Fry pies at Hershbergers are a must. Blueberry and Apple are our favorites!

I worked as an au pair in Ohio for a year, and went with my fellow au pairs on a guided tour of Amish Country in Berlin, OH in April of 2009. It was one of the most amazing experiences I had had up to date. It was something so far from my own life, my way of living, and... More

Went to bulk food store and ate at Amish restaurants. Specifically the Hartville Kitchen. We are from this area so we also visited with friends and relatives.
