Southeastern Pennsylvania
is widely known for its Amish community, and in fact is home to one of the largest Amish communities in the country. Here, you will find hundreds of Old Order Amish and Old Order Mennonites who follow a lifestyle that is very much similar the lifestyle their ancestors followed several hundred years ago when the lands were first settled. This is unique because several very large cities are located less than an hour's drive away, including Harrisburg, Baltimore, and Philadelphia.




While the large Amish community in the Lancaster area has made a huge effort to retain the ways of yesteryear and has resisted following the modern ways of their nearby neighbors, the community largely does welcome tourists to the area to learn more about their way of life. If you pay a visit to an Amish community on your trip to the Lancaster area, you will find that these communities are very tight-knit and largely rely on themselves and the local community for sustenance. They largely live without electricity and use hand pumps or gas-powered pumps bring water into their homes. They shun television, radio, and telephones as a means to communicate with those outside the community and instead embrace their family and local community wholeheartedly. Generally, they grow their own food and they make their own clothes. They do not own cars, but instead use horse-drawn carriages for transportation and use horse-drawn plows for farming.




The Amish community does invite visitors to partake in special celebrations, festivals, and events throughout the year. For instance, in May, you can partake in the Annual Sheep Shearing Days at the Amish Farm and House. In September through November, this same venue opens its doors for Sunset Tours to mark the early days of autumn.




There are also year-round attractions and activities you can partake in, such as taking an Amish buggy ride or treating yourself to the Amish Experience Theater and Country Homestead Tour Combo. Both of these experiences will give you a unique glimpse into the simpler way of life that the Amish have embraced. You will absolutely want to take time to get to know more about the Amish way of life while you are visiting this beautiful area of Pennsylvania!

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!

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!

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!
