Ohio weekend getaways? In Amish Country, Ohio, you have access to famous people like Jim Brickman, LeAnn Rimes, Bill Cosby, and the Oak Ridge Boys. In the New Philadelphia area is the Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center located on the Kent State University Campus. They offer venues with theater, music and famous people. The theater is located just a short ride from the heart of Ohio Amish Country so you have many other things to do in the area from Amish Culture, to wineries, cheese factories, bakeries, gift shops, antiques, etc. The contemporary performing arts center boasts 50,000 square feet and includes an 1100 seat theater. It is hard to believe that something so modern is located in the middle of Amish Country.
