It was a long day in the coach as we made our way from Niagara Falls to Lancaster through the rolling Appalachian Mountains until we arrived in Lancaster late afternoon.

Our Amish experience commenced early evening when we visited the Amish Village for the show and dinner. The next morning we visited an Amish Farmhouse and museum and then went on to the small town with the quaint name Intercourse. It was a delight to walk around the town for a few hours, enjoy a light meal, browse through the shops and in particular the beautiful Quilt Shops.

This town is frequented by the Amish and you will often see horse and carriage pass you along the road.

We enjoyed our overnight stay and Amish experience and felt it was time to move on to Washington DC.

    Lots of good info. I see we have some things in common, as we are almost same age and I used to live in Australia in 70's......
