Ohio bed and breakfast owner about ways to experience Holmes County Amish Country, one of the answers always includes Amish Country Tours. Although guests can drive the back roads and see Amish furniture stores, quilt shops, candle makers, etc., they don't understand the history and culture completely without taking escorted Amish Country Tours. In spring 2010 tourists to Ohio Amish Country can take a short tour that will teach them about the history of the Mennonite and Amish community and understand how they live today in Holmes County. Yet another tour includes progressive meals with many visits to Amish-owned businesses to shop and experience the lifestyle. Yet another tour ventures away from the Amish community and takes guests on Ohio's 1st State Road! You will travel the path of early settlers and make a few stops along the way and then end your day with dinner at a former Stagecoach stop. If you are confused about what kind of tour might be right for you be sure to talk with your bed and breakfast staff to help you pick out the right length tour with the kinds of places you would like to see. At Garden Gate Get-A-Way Bed & Breakfast, your innkeepers will package your tours with an overnight stay to make one-stop-shopping for you!
