Top three ways to experience autumn in Amish Country

October 13, 2010 | Category: Outdoors, Things to Do, Travel | Posted by: Sarah

1. A hot air balloon ride
What better way to experience the leaves turning and the fields being harvested than from above? You’ll be able to see for miles from a hot air balloon with either Balloon Rides Daily by the United States Hot Air Balloon Team, or AE Balloon Rides. You’ll be able to see clusters of trees that are turning yellows, oranges, or bright & deep reds, and fields that are perfectly manicured. This is probably the most breathtaking way to create memories of Lancaster County in ANY season!
2. A scooter ride
This is probably one of the most unique ways to tour Amish Country. You can experience the sights and smells of Lancaster County while riding around the back roads on a scooter. Stop at Country Road Scooters and Motorcycle Rentals or Countryside Scooter & Bike Rentals to pick up your bike – or they can deliver it right to your hotel, bed & breakfast or campground for you!
3. Harvest Events
Lancaster County has got lots of great harvest events. The Harvest Festival at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is great – Saturdays through October 30 – you can pick pumpkins, pick a ear of popcorn, and explore the Amazing Maize Maze that has turned from deep green to the warm, harvest shades of tan & brown.  The Bear Creek Harvest Wine Festival is on Sunday, October 24 from 1-5pm. You can take in the spectacular views and enjoy live music. Waltz Vineyards will release of the long awaited Crow Woods Cabernet starting on November 8 – check the website for special open hours!
