The Tiny Amish Town In New York That’s The Perfect Day Trip Destination

New York has the fastest-growing Amish and Mennonite populations in the country. There’s a combined population of the two religious groups of around 25,000 throughout the state. Many people outside of the communities don’t know much about them or their beliefs. They have fascinating communities with really unique atmospheres. Their slow pace of life is something we can all learn from in today’s hectic society. One small Mennonite and Amish town in New York where you can immerse yourself in this distinctive culture is Penn Yan.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.


As with any town, remember to be respectful of the communities that live in the area when you are visiting. Have you been to Penn Yan in New York? Share your experiences in the comments!
