Pay a visit to historic Philadelphia and Pennsylvania’s Amish Country from New York. Discover landmarks like the Liberty Bell, Constitution Hall, the famous Rocky Steps, and more before heading out to Lancaster County to experience Amish culture. Your travels will take you from New York through New Jersey as you make your way to Philadelphia.
Other sights you’ll see are Elfert Alley, which is the oldest inhabited street in America and Lancaster County, home to Pennsylvania’s Amish community. Explore the Amish market and enjoy some lunch there.
After lunch, take an Amish buggy ride through the farm country. See first-hand how the Amish live without the benefit of modern technology. Then spend some time in the quiet town of Lancaster, PA. Ride in a horse-drawn carriage to experience the uncomplicated lifestyle of the Amish people.
In addition to its impressive heritage, lively waterfronts now flank the city, where restaurants litter the neighborhoods. Here, you’ll experience world-class art, music, and architecture. You might even 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 journey from Penn Station in Manhattan to Philadelphia will make it all possible, and there are a number of bus options too.
Philadelphia is 1 hour 40 minutes to JFK International Airport.
