Within Ohio's Appalachian region is the largest Amish population in the world. Experience a slower pace of life by following this road trip to see just some of what you’ll find in Ohio’s Appalachian country.

Stop

Life takes a slower pace in Ohio’s Amish Country, where the rustic red barns and farms of the world’s largest Amish population are nestled in the breathtaking hills and valleys. Get the full experience by touring the farm at Yoder’s Amish Home, learn about cheesemaking (and taste the finished product) at Guggisberg Cheese, sip dandelion wine at Breitenbach Wine Cellars and take a fun selfie at the world’s largest cuckoo clock in Sugarcreek.

Stay

Relax in the peace and quiet of the countryside from a unique “hillside honeycomb” or a cozy cabin at the Inn at Honey Run. Take a stroll though its Open Air Art Museum, which combines nature and art.

Eat

Pull up a chair at the counter for Amish-style diner fare at Boyd & Wurthmann Restaurant, share authentic Swiss and Austrian meals at Chalet in the Valley or take in an Amish-themed show or musical during your meal at the Ohio Star Theater.

Along the way

Check out fine arts from around the world (and beautiful local pottery) at the Zanesville Museum of Art and grab a cone afterwards at Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl.

Shop for antiques and take a horse-drawn canal boat ride at Historic Roscoe Village. Look for more one-of-a-kind finds along the Coshocton Antique and Unique Shopping Trail.

Sleep in a luxury yurt and wake up to the sounds of nature at The Wilds in Cumberland, where you can take an open-air safari tour to see exotic animals on the wide-open ranges.

Marvel at the detail of the handcarved folk art by “The World’s Master Carver” at Ernest Warther Museum and Gardens in Dover.

Explore the art of Appalachia at stops along the Ohio Art Corridor, including sculptures outside Alan Cottrill Sculpture Studio in Zanesville.

Take in the view and enjoy a four-course breakfast at the Inn at Dresden.

Order barbecue fresh from the smoker at Cid’s Smokehouse Grill in Senecaville.
