Ohio's number one rural tourist destination, Holmes County, rich in history and culture, is home to the world's largest community of Amish. A visit to Ohio's Amish Country is so unique, it may feel as though you've stepped into 17th Century Europe as you view Amish, dressed in peasant-type clothing, taking animals to market in horse-drawn buggies or wagons. A visit to this unique and historic area offers a broad range of shopping experiences including cheese shops, quilt shops, Amish hard-wood furniture stores, weekly farmer's markets, flea markets, restaurants, and more. Visitors will observe centuries-old practices of a distinct separate and hard-working group of people.
