Experience Amish Country

Learn about the Amish lifestyle here in Lancaster County by taking a buggy ride, touring an Amish home, schoolhouse and barn, watching a production about the Amish, and shopping at local shops for souvenirs to take home with you.

Morning

If everyone wants something a little different for breakfast, and you’ve got time to sit down, experience a genuinely friendly atmosphere and homemade food at Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant & Smorgasbord. They also have a Noah’s Ark Kid’s buffet! If you are looking to grab and go.

To start your day, head to the Mennonite Information Center. Their knowledgeable staff can provide authentic information on Amish and Mennonite faith and culture. They also have maps and brochures of the area. You can even ask about their step-on-guide custom tours if you’re interested.

Down the road is the Amish Farm & House. There you can expect to see a charming, Pennsylvania Dutch farm in operation, complete with farm animals and fowl.

Afternoon

For lunch, you can choose to stay on route 30, grab a quick lunch at Honeybaked Ham and enjoy some Outlet shopping or head over to Kitchen Kettle Village where there are 42 country shops and several restaurants built around their nationally celebrated Jam & Relish Kitchen. After your belly is full and you’re done shopping, take some time to explore the back roads around Intercourse – you may find Amish-owned farm stands and quilt shops.

Evening

Wrap up the day at Shady Maple Smorgasbord where there is two-hundred feet of deliciously authentic Pennsylvania Dutch cooking. Or stop by Yoder’s Restaurant for a more intimate experience, but with the same great PA Dutch cooking.

As the evening fades, there are close by places that can provide a great overnight stay. Consider Old Summer House and A Suite Escape, both Bed & Breakfasts.
