Amish Countryside & Lifestyle
One of the delights of vacationing for us is getting to know more about the people who reside in the area we are visiting.
The Amish and Mennonites (of various types) are just two people groups that make up our varied county.
We know you will enjoy learning about the culture and traditions of our neighbors and friends.
