Lancaster Valley Amish Country Tour: From Morgantown to Lancaster Professional Review and Guide
"This 73.5-mile drive traces a serpentine path through the Lancaster Amish Country, avoiding for the most part the highly promoted tourist routes. It offers glimpses of Amish life and despite following the path less traveled, still offers opportunities to shop. Side trips to Landis Valley Museum and Ephrata Cloister offer looks at daily life centered around two distinct religious cultures.
The narrow streets of the eighteenth-century villages and towns on this tour make parts of the drive unsuitable for recreational vehicles. This drive starts in Morgantown and snakes its way south and west across the verdant Lancaster Valley, passing through Amish villages and historic towns before ending at Lancaster. Farm stands, roadside tables, and wheelbarrows loaded with seasonal produce put forth tasty invitations to interrupt the drive. Special attractions: Amish country images; Ephrata Cloister; Landis Valley Museum; historic Lititz and Lancaster; James Buchanan’s Wheatland; Mascot Roller Mills and the Ressler Family House; walking tours, museums, shopping, Pennsylvania Dutch dining, and Amish buggy and hot-air balloon rides."
