Join us Mother’s Day weekend in one of America’s most unique heritage places – Amish Country Ohio – home to the largest Amish and Mennonite population in the world. Here the natural beauty and natural grace of Holmes Country and the Amish culture have created a destination where the notion of doing things, creating things, feeling real life with hands – and hearts – is very much alive. Best of all, visitors like us will be intrigued by the way of life and we’ll find endless opportunities to engage in the day-to-day activities of the culture, not just watch from afar.
So if you feel the need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city or you want to enjoy rolling hills and well cared for farmsteads, then this trip is just right for you. You’ll feel yourself “unwinding” immediately as we drive down the country roads and rolling hills.
During our 4 days here in Amish Country – these are some of the wonderful sights, shopping, excursions and tastings that we’ll be experiencing on this hand-crafted trip:
