      I have visited Pennsylvania Dutch Country many times. True Dutch Country is an area about ten miles long stretching from the small towns of Bird in Hand to Intercourse Pa. They can be accessed from Pennsylvania Route 30. If you choose to go on the weekend though you will encounter alot of traffic in the surrounding areas.

      The Pennsylvania Dutch are peple who eschew the modern conveniences we take for granted.

      They do not use electricity but rely on methods of farming that were popular during the 19th century. They believe that a life without modern conveniences will allow them to be closer to God and to their families.

      One thing when driving around the older areas that encompass Dutch Country that is apparent is the contrast between modern vehicles and the horse drawn buggies that the Amish or “plain people” drive ...

      • around in. You have to be careful not run into their vehicles. Most of them have an florescent orange triangle on the back to alert cars so they can be seen at night.

        The Amish are known for their frugal ways and their delicious food. It is the home of shoe fly pie,Family style restaurants like the Good and Plenty, and Millers seven sweets and sours. They have wonderful farmers markets

        in the area which have a variety of meats and cheeses, as well as tourist attractions like The Amish Village and Abe’s buggy rides. There is also an old fashioned pretzel factory in Lititz that can be visited. For those who prefer modern conveniences LancasterPa. has a large outlet mall, as does Hershey both a short drive away. In short, a visit to Pa. Dutch country has something for everyone.
