Mar 12, 2014

When the fast paced living in a modern city is tiring you down, the best way to slow things down is to organize a small group visit to a place like Pennsylvania’s The Amish Village which is located along Route 896 which is 199, Hartman Bridge Road, Ronks, PA 17572.

What is Amish tradition?

The Amish tradition has Dutch and German roots which traces back to a close knit Christian church fellowship origins. They are known for their preference for simple living, slow adoption of modern technology and simple dressing. The Amish church also has a history relating to a group of Switzerland residents who followed the lead of Jakob Ammann who soon became known as Amish.

It was during the 18th century, a group of Amish practitioners made their way to Pennsylvania as immigrants. It was measured in 2000 that there are nearly 165,000 Amish living in the United States and about 1,500 Amish in Canada. More recent studies suggests that there are more who are unaccounted for.

Pennsylvania’s The Amish Village makes for a great place to visit with a rented charter bus because it is located a little way off the center of downtown and if you are visiting in a large group, we think that the visit is going to be more comfortable with a help of a large charter bus at your beck and call.
