The Day Trip Of A Lifetime You Can Only Take In Cleveland
Northeast Ohio is a region known for many things. From the awesome majesty of the Lake Erie shore to the Cleveland skyline, there’s no shortage of unforgettable sights and adventures that can only be experienced in the Cleveland area. This scenic day trip is about 30 miles out of the city, but it’s close enough and memorable enough to make the short trek worthwhile.
Ohio's Amish country stretches across a large portion of northeast Ohio.
It's hard to miss Amish country once you're there; just look for the horse-drawn buggies and stately old farmhouses. Amish country starts just 30 miles or so away from Cleveland and continues through much of the surrounding area.
A trip through Amish country is like a journey through time.
Spending a day exploring quaint, naturalist Amish country is fascinating and beautiful. You've truly never seen anything like it.
The natural scenery will take your breath away.
The great outdoors have never been so pristine. Everything is left largely intact as it was centuries ago, and walking through the woods here can be a surreal and haunting experience.
And the people are unforgettable.
Many Amish are incredibly kind towards outsiders, and there are even a few Amish-operated restaurants, furniture stores and curiosity shops scattered throughout Amish country.
You'll find comfort in simplicity.
The Amish find enjoyment in taking things slow and simple. From the lack of modern conveniences to the strong sense of tradition, the Amish way of life might sound strange, but it can rub off on you a bit if you spend enough time exploring.
You'll see things you won't believe.
A horse and buggy driving on an asphalt road with a luminescent sign on the back is a pretty unusual sight, but it will feel like commonplace after spending a day in Amish country.
Covered bridges are a common scenic sight.
You'll see a fair amount of beautiful old covered bridges scattered throughout Amish country, and walking across them never ceases to be an unforgettable experience.
There is plenty of wide-open space to explore.
Amish country is pretty spread out. Countless farms and family houses dot the countryside, often separated by miles of empty nature.
In Amish country, you can get lost in history.
With all the hustle and bustle of modern city life, the idea of exploring a place like Amish country is even more appealing. Taking some time to slow down and enjoy the simpler things in life and nature is a hallmark of Amish country.
