Visit to historic Philadelphia and Pennsylvania’s Amish Country from New York. Discover the Liberty Bell, Constitution Hall, the famous Rocky Steps, and other landmarks before heading out to Lancaster County to experience Amish culture first hand. You’ll journey from New York through New Jersey as you make your way to Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love.
You’ll see Elfert Alley, the oldest inhabited street in America as well as Lancaster County, home to Pennsylvania’s Amish community. Enjoy some lunch while you explore the Amish market there.
After lunch at the Amish market, take a genuine Amish buggy ride through farm country and see first- hand how the Amish live without the benefit of modern technology. Explore the quiet town of Lancaster, PA. Ride in a horse-drawn carriage to experience the simple ways of the Amish people.
In addition to its impressive heritage, lively waterfronts now flank the city. Restaurants litter the neighborhoods, and there is world-class art, music, and architecture all around. It’s not uncommon to find, alongside the colonial brick homes and cobblestoned streets, a drag troupe reenacting the French revolution, a medical oddity museum, vegan pastrami, an Andy Warhol-themed opera, or a beer garden at City Hall.
A 90 minute train ride from Penn Station in Manhattan to Philadelphia will make it all possible. There are also a number of bus options.
Philadelphia is 1 hour 48 minutes to Bentley Hotel New York.
