"The Opportunity to Visit the City of Brotherly Love and Amish Country – in One Day!"
A great way to add some extra fun to your New York City sightseeing is discovering the charm and surroundings outside the Big Apple on a day trip to Philadelphia and Lancaster County, better known as Amish Country.
With a professional tour guide along for the trip, a comfortable motor coach carries you and your family and friends through the scenic Pennsylvania countryside. Then you’re ready for a tour of Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, which means visiting the well known Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.
Other popular attractions you will see during your Philadelphia visit include Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Elsert Alley, and Constitution Square and Hall.
And let’s not forget the chance to see the famous “Rocky Steps," those 72 stone steps leading up to the entrance of the Philadelphia Museum of Art made famous in the Oscar-winning film “Rocky.” You’ll definitely be humming “Gonna Fly Now” as you race up the steps, doing your best Sylvester Stallone impersonation.
Afterwards it’s time to visit Amish Country in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. After a lunch break at the Amish marketplace, get set for an authentic Amish buggy ride through Amish farm country. That’s going to be fun!
If you’ve ever wondered about the life of the Amish, here is a terrific opportunity to learn about their intriguing culture. You can interact with the locals and find out what it’s like to live without electricity, running water, or have telephone service.
And after a fun-filled day of visiting famous landmarks and learning about different cultures it’s back to New York City – just in time for dinner!
