Day 2

This morning we’ll travel off the beaten track through spectacular farmlands on our AMISH ARTISANS shopping adventure. We begin our tour with a gift bag and a mini jar of jelly and we’ll add a gift at each of our 4 Amish stops. Travel down backroads you’ve never been on before. This afternoon we’ll take our reserved seats at SIGHT & SOUND THEATRE for their brand new show DAVID. Master Poet. Fearless Warrior. Anointed King. From still waters to shadowed valleys, David’s ascent to the throne is filled with towering giants, wild animals and Philistine soldiers. After unprecedented victories lead to devastating failures, this passionate warrior will face the biggest battle of all: the one within himself. Come alongside this young shepherd on his journey to become a man after God’s own heart. With original music inspired by the Psalms, David is a state-of-the-art theatrical experience for the whole family. Witness one of the most legendary Bible stories as it comes to life with spectacular special effects, massive sets and live animals in this brand-new stage production from Sight & Sound Theatre. Dinner tonight at MILLER’S SMORGASBORD.

Day 3

Today we’ll make a stop at the BIRD-IN-HAND FARMERS MARKET before it’s all aboard the STRASBURG RAILROAD, a historic and beautifully restored wooden coach pulled by a 100 year old steam engine. Sit back and relax as we travel through 2,500 acres of preserved Amish farmland while learning the history of the railroad and countryside. We head for home with memories of our time in the Amish Country.
