Summer is when people travel.  Many of those trips take in Amish areas.  Actually, in a lot of states it’s getting harder to drive anywhere without passing near an Amish spot on the map.

I also know a lot of you live in or near Amish settlements.  So I thought I’d throw it out–are you visiting any Amish communities this summer? (or have you already?) Planning anything fun?

I’ll be in a few places, including Lancaster County, Holmes County, and quite possibly northern Indiana.  I usually visit a few new Amish communities on every such trip (last summer: NC; Ashland, OH; Adams County, IN, among others) but haven’t figured out which ones yet.  Any suggestions welcome.
