Shopping, sales and good food is what you’ll experience with a trip to Ohio’s Amish country.
About a hour and a half south of Cleveland, you’ll probably begin to notice a few horse & buggies making there way down the road. You may come across a store filled with home-made jams, jellies and cheeses. When you begin to see women wearing hair bonnets and men wearing wide-brimmed hats; this my friend, is Amish country. The world’s largest, right here in Ohio.
The history of the Amish actually started back in 1693 in Switzerland and during the 18TH century, many Amish began to migrate to Pennsylvania. The two types of Amish; the Mennonites and Old Order, follow the Ordnurg; the rules of the church, which every member must observe. The rules cover views on day-to-day living…from restrictions on power-line electricity and driving to telephones and what & what NOT to wear.
It may seem to be a simpler life than those in the BIG city, (maybe harder) but their willingness to focus on family values and humility is something to be admired.
Visit the World’s Largest Amish Country this year. Just minutes from Cleveland, and see past your boundaries.
