If you feel the need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city or you want to enjoy rolling hills and well cared for farmsteads, come to Ohio Amish Country, home of the largest Amish settlement in the world.

You can just feel yourself "unwinding" as you drive down the country roads and rolling hills.  Once you get here, you will understand why this is the 2nd most visited tourist destination in the state of Ohio.  There is something special in these rolling landscapes.

Where is Ohio Amish Country? 

Ohio Amish Country is a 3-5 county area of Ohio where approximately 40,000 Amish people live and work.  It consists of Holmes County, where nearly half the county's residents are Amish, plus Tuscarawas Coshocton, and Wayne Counties. (There are Amish families living in neighboring Ashland and Knox counties and a settlement  near Middlefield.)

Ohio Amish Country is located in the rolling hills of east-central Ohio.  Easy to get to with Interstates 77 to the east, 71 to the west, and 70 to the south.  Remember, you are coming here to relax, so you don't need an Interstate highway!!

Visit on weekdays and Saturdays when Amish owned businesses are in full operation.  Sunday is a day reserved for church and family.  Their businesses will not be open on Sundays.  However, the scenic roadways are always open.  Come view the natural beauty of rolling hills and groomed farmsteads.  On Sundays you will see Amish families in buggies traveling the roads between church services and family visitation.

Most people have heard of Berlin and Millersburg, but what about Charm, Farmerstown, Baltic, Walnut Creek, Winesburg, Becks Mills and New Bedford?  Each town has its own set of unique features.  Plus, you
