All Day

Trip To The Amish Country

The Society will sponsor a trip to the AMISH COUNTRY to tour the beautiful farmland and vistas.  All the farms use horses and mules rather than tractors.  The day will start with the famous smorgasbord at SHADY MAPLE and time to visit their enormous gift shop.  Then, it is on to Kitchen Kettle where we will meet our step-on guide for the two hour tour which will include a few stops at locally owned shops with multiple types of merchandise and traditional Amish foods.  When we bring the guide back to Kitchen Kettle, we will have an hour there to browse the shops.

The bus departs from Laurel Square Shopping Center, 1930 Rt. 88, Brick. We arrive back approximately 7 pm.

Cost is $100 which includes transportation, lunch, the guide and all gratuities.

For availability or a reservation call the museum number 732-785-2500.  Please leave your phone number and name very clearly.
