Pennsylvania Dutch Country is a region in Pennsylvania also referred to as South Central Pennsylvania. The region is home to many major tourist attractions such as Lancaster county's Amish country, Harrisburg's state capitol and museums and Hershey's chocolate world and theme park.



Other destinations


While Pennsylvania Dutch Country consists of rural areas, towns and a handful of small cities and is noted for its high Amish population, it is home to over 1.5 million people and maintains one of the highest rates of population growth in the Northeast United States due to lower cost of living but close proximity to major metropolitan areas. It is truly a diverse region with rolling hills, orchards and farms but also growing, bustling and vibrant cities.


Get in

Get around


  • Plain and Fancy Farm, [2]. Good all-around tour of the Amish community including a restaurant, bus tours and a movie. Particularly good if you're a foreign visitor without a car.




  • Miller's Smorgasbord, 2811 Lincoln Highway East Ronks, PA 17572 (On the left side of Rt 30. About a mile past rt 896 when travelling East.), 1-800-669-3568, [1]. Very authentic Dutch food for a fair price. Restaurant is often crowded, so reservations are highly recommended. There are many shops on the premises which are well worth checking out.



Stay safe


  • Hershey Harrisburg Official Visitors Center [3]
  • Lancaster County Pennsylvania Dutch Country Official Visitors Center [4]
