The sights along this scenic journey are, quite literally, nothing fancy. The Amish, sometimes called the Plain People, live a life of modesty and simplicity, shunning modern conveniences. Their customs are governed by the ancient rhythms of planting and harvesting and offer fascinating glimpses into days gone by.

Some 35,000 Amish, the largest community of it's kind in the world, reside in these gently folded farmslands known as Amish Country.
