Penn Dutch Amish Experience
August 25 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm
Take a trip into the heart of Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and discover the cultures and lifestyles of the people who settled this lush countryside. Our first stop will be the exciting QVC Studios where we will take a ‘behind -the-scenes’ Studio Tour. Watch how the most famous on-line retail company operates with fascinating sets, models, talents and some funny moments. We continue on to Lancaster County and check into our hotel, The Country Inn of Lancaster which features Amish quilts in each room and rocking chairs on their private porch. This evening we enjoy a private authentic Pennsylvania Dutch meal served in an Amish home. Chat and engage with your hosts as you enjoy a very special dinner with them. On Day 2, after a hearty breakfast, meet your guide for a tour of Amish Country. See the homes, farms and lifestyle that make these people so unique (with a few surprises). Our tour ends at the Kitchen Kettle Village where you will have time to shop for unique Lancaster goods and enjoy lunch on own. Next, we arrive at the Amish Experience and experience a moving Magic Lantern Show filled with stories from the New and Old Testaments. Marvel at this incredibly illustrated Creation and enjoy a journey through the Bible’s pages. Our next stop is the Sight and Sound Theater to see the incredible extravaganza show ‘Jonah’. Jonah is a prophet – and a man on the run! His wild adventures find him in the seaport of Joppa, a boat, a storm and inside the belly of a giant whale! Through God he learns how to receive grace and extend mercy. After the show enjoy an incredible dinner at Miller’s Smorgasbord restaurant. On Day 3, we will visit the Bird-in-Hand Farmer’s Market. Stroll amongst the stalls and enjoy shopping for delicious Lancaster goodies. Afterwards, we will visit the charming village of Lititz. Wander around the quaint shops, have lunch on own and then watch and taste a great German tradition at Sturgis’ Pretzel – America’s oldest pretzel bakery, before we head for home.
