On your trip to Lancaster, take some time to explore the culture of the large Amish population who call the area home. This beautiful countryside is often referred to as Amish country, and is filled with attractions, tours, and other experiences that allow you to observe the life of the Amish. Your family will find Amish Country simplistically exciting and culturally unique.


From Lancaster, head out to Bird-In-Hand, Pennsylvania to experience Amish culture first hand with the Amish Experience Theater and Amish Homestead Tour. The tour lasts approximately forty-five minutes and takes you inside the home of an actual Amish family, where you can explore the simple lifestyle of the Amish up-close. This experience also provides you with access to the Amish Experience, a cultural center where you can explore exhibits and displays on the Amish culture. At this center, you can also enjoy an education movie entitled 'Jacob's Choice' at the F/X Theater.


Take a tour of the Amish countryside in authentic Amish fashion with Abe's Buggy Rides. You can choose from a twenty minute buggy ride up to an hour and fifteen minutes, taking you on a horse-drawn Amish buggy through the beautiful farm country for two to five miles. This buggy company has been family owned and operated for over forty years, and ensures a true Amish experience. The longer tours take you by an Amish schoolhouse, and allow for stops at an Amish country store where you can shop for great crafts and home-made treats to add to your experience. Prices start at $10 for adults and $5 for kids age three and older.


The Amish Country Tours gives your family an afternoon that is both education and interesting. This guided tour takes you to the Plain and Fancy Farm in the heart of Amish Country, where you can explore a farm first-hand to see how an Amish farm is run. You will also have time to visit the many Amish roadside stands, as well as crafts and quilt shops and a local bakery, where you can shop for home décor, treats, and more to take home with you. Advance reservations are suggested for this popular tour.


These and other cultural experiences await you on your trip to Lancaster, giving you a unique look into the simpler life of the Amish.

The Amish Experience Theater & Country Homestead Combo Tour
The entire tour was very educational. Our tour guide was great! Those straight back bench seats in the theater gotta go! You are sitting on a downward angle with no place for your body to go. I felt very uncomfortable!

The Amish Experience Theater and Country Homestead Tour Combo - Bird-in-Hand, PA
Loved everything about this amish experience!The film,jacobs choice,gave an inside look into the life of an amish family & the human decisions that they are faced with.It also gave a historical back round ,which was very interesting.The film was shown in a barn setting,which also added to the experience.The film was then followed by a guided tour of the actual homestead.The tour guide was very informative.I suggest this experience to anyone!It really makes you think about the world we live in.There was also a fantastic gift shop on the premises,along with a couple amish-run stores.We also ate at the restaurant on the premises.If you decide to eat there,choose the family style sit down meal over choosing the menu.You'll be able to try all the varieties of food and will meet some really interesting people.We ended up with some new friends.There is also a buggy ride available on the premises.That was also a worthwhile trip.It took you right onto an amish farm.Let's me just put it this way,we were thinking we would be done with this experience in a couple hours.Well,we were there for 6 hours!We don't regret a thing!

The Amish Experience Theater & Country Homestead Combo Tour
This tour was very enjoyable and the movie was really educational. I knew that amish teens could go out in the world, but not for that long. The only way it would have been better is that if the homestead tour had been of an actual amish home and school. It was really nice, too, that you could catch a buggy tour right down the street and our guide was very knowledgeable. I would definitely go here again!
