Sugarcreek is the first tourist oasis you hit as you head west from Interstate 77 towards Holmes County.  It’s known as the ‘Little Switzerland’ of Ohio and hosts a big Swiss festival at the end of September.  It’s also where the Budget newspaper, a popular Amish/Mennonite publication, gets published.

A lot of local Amish work at the brickyard which straddles the main road through the village.  Buggies pass through all the time as Amish go about their business in town.  But on the whole it seems a lot more sleepy compared to Berlin in the heart of the settlement.  Not a bad place to get a shoo-fly pie, though.
