Let’s Go Dutch!
Thursday, September 17, 2009
Let Amish customs in Pennsylvania Dutch Country subtly tickle your senses with a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of 21st-century living.
Take advantage of the daylight, because candles, not electricity, will light your evenings during your stay in Lancaster County.
Climb aboard America’s oldest short-line railroad and listen to the rhythmic sounds of the Strasburg steam locomotive.
Get a mouthful of an Amish favorite, shoofly pie—a coffee-cake-like pie with a molasses bottom.
Feel your way through the five-acre corn maze at the local “agritainment” center, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm.
Swirl, breathe in and taste the fine wines of the Mount Hope Estate and Winery.
If you’re from a country other than the United States and plan to operate a motor vehicle in Pennsylvania, you will need an international driver’s license, your home country’s driver’s license and a valid passport. The vehicle’s registration card and an auto insurance card belonging to the car’s owner or rental agency must be in the vehicle at all times.
