Millions of visitors flock to Lancaster County in Pennsylvania every year to visit the many Amish attractions and other type’s of attractions that the area has to offer. You’ll find real Amish farms, gift shops, wood & quilt shops, one-room schoolhouses, buggy rides and more!
In addition to the Amish attractions, you’ll find the Lancaster Outlets (hundreds of outlet stores), the National Christmas Center Museum, Farmer’s Markets, Gift Shops & Souvenir Stores, hundreds of restaurants, theaters, art galleries, museums and all kinds of other things to keep you busy while you’re there.
We used to live in Lancaster County during the late 1980’s and wow…has it changed over the years! When we lived there…it was a tourist destination, but it has grown 90% more since then! It’s a really nice area to live in or to visit.
One thing that I love to look for when we’re visiting is those beautiful Amish Horse & Buggy’s. While many people think that you’ll only see them in the countryside, that’s only partly true! You’ll also see them in the city and the suburbs too! Take a look at my photo…that’s a buggy sitting right beside a tractor trailer at a red light!
When we lived there year’s ago…we would of never seen a buggy sitting beside a tractor trailer at a major intersection. Wow…things sure have changed! Anyway, just wanted to give you a “small glimpse” of a Amish Buggy and over the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing some additional photos & information with you about one of our recent trips to Lancaster county.
