Lancaster PA’s Amish Dutch Country

If you ever wondered what and how the Amish people live then Lancaster PA is the right place to visit. The Pennsylvania Amish of Lancaster County are America’s oldest Amish settlement, where thousands still live a centuries-old “Plain” lifestyle. They are the most conservative and peaceful people you can ever meet. Arriving in PA Dutch Country allows you to step back in time to enjoy a slower, more peaceful pace – one where the horse & buggy remains a primary form of transportation, and where windmills dot the landscape, providing power harnessed from nature. The Amish people are hard workers. I guess they are the only people you can hardly see use the government food stamps or any kind of support. Always a vital part of Lancaster County culture, the PA Amish are involved in agriculture as well as an array of businesses and cottage industries. Also one thing you will never see an Amish uses a phone! neither a computer. They have their own schools, so no one studies computer science neither management. However, they are successful business people. If you ever visited Lancaster PA, make sure you pay good respect to their privacy! i know this sounds weird but, they don’t like to be in your photo gallery! neither on your instagram profile pictures.
