Of all the places I have been, Amish country is right behind our trip to the British Virgin Islands. I am a stickler for non-touristy travel destinations. Watching the Amish in action combined with the beautiful scenery made for a very enjoyable trip. The only regret I have is that we did not schedule more time to visit! We will most definitely go back for another visit! Here are a few of the things we did while we were in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area.
Amish country is by far one of the prettiest places I have been. A ride through the country brings a sense of calm with the views of beautiful homesteads complete with old (sometimes rustic) homes, perfectly groomed farmland, and large barns. Watching the Amish working in their fields and riding in their horse and buggies or on their bikes creates an appreciation for all their hard work and sacrifices.
One of the things we love about traveling with our children is making memories. As we have learned with our soon to be 17-year-old, time is precious. Spending time with family is our main goal. We love to find unique places, different from just the run of the mill vacation to make it that much more memorable. For example, my husband would rather take a gamble on a hole in the wall local restaurant. He always hopes of finding a hidden jewel versus a chain restaurant anytime.
