2023 Getaway Guide - 35

Learn about the Amish lifestyle here in
Lancaster County by taking a buggy ride,
touring an Amish home, schoolhouse and
barn, savoring PA Dutch cuisine, and even
staying on a farm.
Before you dive into the Amish culture
that Lancaster County is known for, start
off with a traditional breakfast that will
sustain you until lunchtime. Both The
Restaurant & Buffet at Oregon Dairy
and Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant &
Smorgasbord offer delicious breakfast
options, and are ideally located near the
places you'll explore.
Amish Village and Backroads Bus Tour
is a 12-acre village featuring a guided
house tour, a lesson in a traditional oneroom
schoolhouse, farm animals, and the
chance to tour the countryside and see
Amish working in the fields. After the
tour, wander the village for a peaceful
morning experience.
Amish Farm & House offers a living
heritage experience where guests can
learn about the Amish through a farm
tour, ride on the " scooter run, " tour
an authentic schoolhouse, and even
a 90-minute bus tour. After the tour,
wander the peaceful 15-acre farm and be
sure to ask plenty of questions!
Mennonite Life Visitors Center provides
information and insight into the life
and beliefs of Amish and Mennonites in
Lancaster, PA. For even more knowledge
from a local, your family can request
a step-on guide to take you on a tour
around the county in your own car. They'll
take you to places of interest that go
beyond the living heritage attractions.
For lunch, you can choose from a variety
of spots specializing in PA Dutch classics:
Dienner's Country Restaurant (PA
Dutch cooking served buffet-style), or
Immergut Hand-Rolled Soft Pretzels
(hand-twisted soft pretzels, pretzel
wraps, and fresh-squeezed lemonade,
blended iced coffees, and fountain
drinks).
The Amish Experience has a " can'tmiss "
tour if you're interested in learning
more about the Amish - from the Amish
themselves. The VIP (Visit in Person) tour
offers an intimate visit to three Amish
properties to experience their dairy
farm operations, to observe an Amish
business, and to visit a family for an
informal chat.
Aaron & Jessica's Buggy Rides gives
you a chance to experience a different
mode of transportation - horse & buggy!
Choose the tour that's right for your
group, either the 20-minute Cookie Run
tour, 30-minute Amish Town tour, or the
60-minute Amish Farm Tour. A buggy
ride gives you a chance to slow down,
and take in the countryside.
Strasburg Scooters Tours offers a freshair
way to experience the backroads.
Their Covered Bridge Tour takes you past
Amish one-room schoolhouses, farms
with families working in the field, and
through covered bridges that dot the
Lancaster County countryside. Along the
way, you'll learn about the history of the
area, bridges, and Amish culture.
How does dessert first sound? Make
Lapp Valley Farm Creamery your go-to
ice cream spot when in Lancaster, PA.
They're making their ice cream from dairy
straight from the farm. Enjoy a tasty treat
- possibly a freshly made waffle cone -
then explore the farm. You can catch a
glimpse of the milking process and even
visit with baby cows.
Wrap up the day at Shady Maple
Smorgasbord where there is twohundred
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 dishes. While you're in the area,
be sure to swing by Country Crafts for
locally made items.
