A trip to Amish Village , Lancaster PA

Hi Prim girls,
Last week my brother and family came on vacation to stay with me for a week. We visited some historical places here in VA, DC and Pennsylvania. It was their first visit since we moved to VA and I want to share with them some places that I enjoyed in the area. When I visited PA  for the first time in 2006 , my cousin showed me Lancaster Area and The Amish Village and I loved that place. The area had the most beautiful lands that I see in my entire life.  And I want to give my nieces the same experience that I had 4 years ago when I see the Amish people for the first time. For me, it was a remarkable experience in my life. In that trip I realize that we can live with less that I had and be extremely happy as well. 
I admire how the Amish live a simple life, making their chores without modern conveniences and they live happy and grateful with the things that they had. 
And we are living pending the electricity, cars, cable, phones, specific brands and our kids pending of electronic games, internet, cel phones and things like that and sometimes we think that our world is finishing when we did not had one of them. We need to learn so much  from them. If we live simple life less prejudice we will have. My admiration and respect for them.
In The Amish Village, they make an effort to show us the authentic detail of the everyday life of this gentle people. House dates back to 1840 furnished with authentic Amish furniture and things like crocks, quilts, clothes, etc. In the village you will find a Spring house, Operating smokehouse, Blacksmith shop, Schoolhouse, Livestock, Windmill Operating Water wheel and gift shops.
 If you are planning a trip to Lancaster you need to see this place.  I will leave you with this though that I found in the Schoolhouse.....
Hope you enjoy this trip to The Amish Village.

Bye, bye and see you soon, 


  1. I would like to go down there again. What I loved was the noodles, still have no idea what they were, but I bought them in the local store. Also we bought meat from a local farm and you cannot beat the taste. It is a nice place to relax and enjoy the simpler side of life.


  2. Wouldn't it be great to live such a simpler life? Although, I'd miss my computer and all of my online friends! lol
    When I visit Amish country here in Ohio, I have a 6 or 7 mile stretch of a country road that I travel on that is nothing but Amish homes and schools. I love passing by all of the farms and seeing the Amish working in their fields, especially as the seasons change. About every mile or so, there's a school house where you'll see the kids out playing ball or walking to school barefooted! It's very fascinating!!

    Enjoy your weekend!
