Throwback: Buggy Ride in Amish Country

Lancaster, PA (September, 2010)

Oh, I loved the buggy ride we did in Lancaster, PA. The buggy is the main means of transportation for the Amish people who are traditionalist Christians. They avoid using any kind of technology. Hence, the buggy. Lancaster, PA is one of the places where there is a concentration of Amish population.

At The Amish Village visitors tour an authentic Amish farmhouse and learn about Amish history and lifestyle.

The buggy which is drawn by a horse is a major means of transport for the Amish.

The buggy ride passed Amish farmlands. It was a very tiny glimpse into the Amish way of life.

A unique and very interesting experience for me.
