Amish Attractions

Lancaster’s Amish Country Attractions

Here in the Amish Country of Lancaster County, you can get away from the fast-paced urban lifestyle and find a more relaxed, slower-paced atmosphere. That’s one of the reasons this area is such a popular vacation and weekend getaway. The change of pace and slower way of living found along our back country roads can be very relaxing. You can even tour local farms while you are here.  See our Attractions Directory to learn more.

But visiting Lancaster County raises a lot of questions about the Amish lifestyle. Who are the Amish?  Why do they live the way they do? Why do they avoid modern conveniences that we have come to depend upon?

Learn About Amish Life

Well, here are a few businesses and organizations where you can ask those questions while you learn first-hand what the Amish life is all about. Explore Amish culture and learn why they choose to live a different lifestyle from you and me. You may enjoy what you discover along the way!
