My husband and I are going to amish country for only one day next month. We will be there on a Monday. I'v gotten brochures and looked throughout the Amish Country websites and with so much to see and do in such a short time frame, I thought I'd ask for some advice. We both enjoy the outdoors, culture, cute shops/bakeries, ect. We are in our early 20s. We are not picky when it comes to going to new places or trying something different.
Are most shops and attractions open 9-5 on Mondays? We would like to get there right when places open to have a full day.
With so little time to see everything, where should our focus be? I don't want to drive through all these counties and waste time being on the road.. so was thinking to narrow it down to maybe just one or two counties to focus on? Would Holmes and Coshocton counties be good ones to choose? What are your opinions? One place suggested to us was Yoders Amish House in Millersburg, is this a good choice? Do you have to do a tour or are you free to look around on your own?
Any suggestions at all with what would be best for us to cover the most area would be wonderful! Also if you could suggest your favorite restaraunts, shops, attractions that would be great as well! THANKS! =D
