For those who may want to visit Lancaster PA and see the Amish peoples way of life. Here are some pictures taken on our visit http://sdrv.ms/LnQD87 .I have been using the Poi Factory files http://www.poi-factory.com/node/14665 for several years.They are a little old but seem to cover areas that we have visited over the years.
Charlie for sharing your pictures of the Amish Community
Nice pics, thanks, Alan
Charley when is the best time to go there,and what route did you use to get there?
But from my house it's north on US 15 to US 30 E or I can go I-81 to US 30E.
We go down 13 across the Bay Bridge tunnel through Maryland and Delaware and pick up 30. Since you are in Utah not sure but you would pick up I95 and come in to Lancaster PA. We usually go in the summer before school lets out or in the Fall.Got a late start this year. They have shows all the way through December.Need to book them early to get good seats. They sale out fast. Same thing in booking a room if you want right in the heart of the Amish community. Bird in the hand hotel books up fast. Nice place to eat at also.
The ladies will like the outlet stores as well as the local shopping. The Amish quilts made by hand are beautiful. The ones in the pictures are in the museum .

Back when we lived in Philly I hunted that area for wild pheasant every year on opening day, pretty country side.
very nice pic's! We have gone there for over 25 years, and love it. We stay at a GREAT B&B named "Frog Town Acres (888) 649-2333 (toll free)" owned by Joe & Gloria Crawshaw, great place, and a superb FULL breakfast. I HIGHLY recommend the place to any B&Ber out there...mention my name, they will treat you very well. Joe and Gloria are VERY friendly, and the grounds are beautiful!
Thanks for sharing
This is a new one for me. Will have to check it out. Reviews look good http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g53403-d484977-r7... . Thanks for the information.
Thanks Charlie, we would be in the motorhome and use I-80. will need to plan a trip there for next year if possible.
I haven't been there in years. Brings back memories
Thanks for sharing. It has been a long time since I have been there. I will have to plan another trip.
How did you get the captions on the pictures. That is really neat.
I use a program called Photo Impression 2000 that came free with my camera. It works pretty good. It does other edits for photos.Just select text and put in what you want and drag to location you want on the photo.
When I was a youngster I would spend 2 weeks each summer on a farm in East Earl. The PRR used to drop all the NYC kids at the Lancaster Station and Esther (the farmer's wife) would pick me up and drive 70 in a 50 MPH zone on Rte. 222 or 322 (not sure which) back to the farm. Their place was between an Amish farm and a Mennonite farm. I had a youngster's crush on Ruth a young and pretty Mennonite woman from the farm right up the road. I got a kick out of the horse and buggy set-ups too - this one Amish guy in his 20's had a loud electric horn installed which was a no no. Hey, I was a kid from NY what did I know.
We used to go for drives on Sunday and the Green Dragon market was one of the stops. BTW, Chet the farmer would drive at least 10 to 15 MPH lower than the posted speed limit - go figure! Great country and good people in that neck of the woods.
thanks for sharing!
I will look into it.
