This weekend my daughter and I are the only ones from our family camping. So since we have a day to ourselves we decided to take a trip into the heart of Amish country here in Ohio. We happen to be just a few short miles from there but rarely take the time away from our campsites to visit some of towns located around here.
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, come to Ohio Amish Country, home of the largest Amish settlement in the world.
Ohio Amish Country is a 3-5 county area of Ohio where approximately 40,000 Amish people live and work.There are many reasons to come here. We enjoy the restaurants - mostly Amish cookin' made from scratch. The bakeries are just out of this world. There are lots and lots of craft shops and some of the best cheese in the world is made here. There are quilt shops everywhere. For these people quilts are a way of life and also beautiful pieces of art. Furniture shops abound. Some of the finest quality heirloom furniture is also made by the Amish.
People from all over arrive in busloads to these little towns. Tours can be taken of the Amish farms and you can find out about how they live and why they live the way they do.
Our main purpose will be shopping and eating some of that good food too.
It'll be a Super Saturday here. I hope your day is a SUPER one too.
