Past Sense
Let Amish customs in Pennsylvania Dutch Country subtly tickle your senses with a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of 21st-century living.

 

 

 

 

 

Sight
Take advantage of the daylight, because candles, not electricity, will light your evenings during your stay in Lancaster County.

Sound
Climb aboard America’s oldest short-line railroad and listen to the rhythmic sounds of the Strasburg steam locomotive.

Taste
Get a mouthful of an Amish favorite, shoofly pie—a coffee-cake-like pie with a molasses bottom.

Touch
Feel your way through the five-acre corn maze at the local “agritainment” center, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm.

Smell
Swirl, breathe in and taste the fine wines of the Mount Hope Estate and Winery.

Road Rules
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.
