Earlier this year I revisited Philadelphia Pennsylvania to spend time with family in the area. After some time exploring Philly we went on a short road trip in the region, and did a few of the Amish community attractions in the area. One nice example is the Amish Farm and House near Lancaster with a long guided tour of an Amish house walking you through their traditions and lifestyle, and then exploring a farm just outside, with plenty of kiddy attractions and fun to peculiar things to play around with. There are a few Amish local artists there sharing a bit of the folk art or simply working going about their business.

After that, we thought of doing a buggy ride, but somehow everything was overwhelmed with ultra orthodox Jews who were first in line. I admit it was a bit odd seeing the ultra orthodox visiting the Amish as a tourist attraction.

 

Shall we go in?
