Penn Dutch area doable without a toad?

We are driving our new ACE up to Gettysburg this summer... Was also thinking of exploring the Pennsylvania Dutch area but was not sure if there is an area to stay where you can find transportation to tour without having a car... Any suggestions??

We lived in PA Dutch/Amish/Menonite country (Lancaster County) for 25 years. Go to the visitor center and pic your targets. There are hundreds! Then drive your Ace or rent a car.

It is the Garden Spot of the East Coast. Enjoy!

The city of Lancaster is at the heart of Amish country so that would be a good central location. Your best bet is to rent a car. There is public transportation but it is very limited and there are taxi services available. You probably want to explore the small towns outside of Lancaster such as Strasburg, Paradise, Bird-in-Hand, and Intercourse (I am not making these up!) to get the "real" Amish feel.

Be sure to stop in a "Family-style" restaurant where you sit at long tables with all the other customers and pass large bowls of food like it was Thanksgiving dinner.

Also make sure to look at authentic Amish quilts. Don't settle for imitations.

Gettysburg is a terrific visit. PA Dutch country (i.e. Lancaster area) is too, but it's a very busy area during the summer tourist season. Public transportation in the region is virtually non-existent, at least beyond the city proper. Plenty of nice camping concerns, but I would plan to rent a car to travel around on both highways and the secondary roads in the farm country.

enjoy!

I am currently in Gettysburg. The bus tours are fine but a toad really allows you to fully discover. I went back to areas two and three times. Undo able without toad.
