Arriving in Amish Country is like traveling back in time, when life was slower and simpler. That feeling is reinforced when you start to see horses and buggies trotting by you on the road and pass the tall windmills of the Amish farms. Stop by the village of Bird in Hand, where stalls and shops sell handcrafted Amish goods, such as quilts, candles, baskets and a local specialty: shoofly pie. In Lancaster, the Central Market is the state’s oldest continuously running farmers’ market, where you can learn about Amish life. There are a number of tours available, with options to visit Amish-run businesses, or even a homestead. Driving time is 75 minutes from Philly.
