Lancaster County’s Amish Country: Anything but Traditional

By Stephanie Davis Smith, February 22, 2017

In Pennsylvania, Lancaster County’s Amish Country is full of surprises that might make you decide to take your meeting to this cultural destination; takes these four for example.

1. A rock star Faith & Heritage Trail awaits.

Take a buggy ride to a farm William Penn once owned, catch some woodcarvers and ropemakers in action, and see Lititz Moravian Congregation’s Sunday worship or one of the nation’s few Native American longhouse replicas. Groups can make stops at several other historic religious and cultural landmarks throughout the area, such as Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum or Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society.

2.  The theater scene is ridiculously good.

Between the faith-based programming (“Samson,” anyone?) at Sight & Sound Millennium Theatre, the Broadway renditions at Fulton Theatre and the bevy of national touring acts at the 1,600-seat American Music Theatre, this town puts on a show to entertain its guests.
