Sugarcreek, Ohio Travel Guide – Amish Country



Yesterday we took a day trip to Sugarcreek, Walnut Creek and Charm, Ohio, just to visit Amish Country for the day. 

Visiting Amish Country is like stepping into a time capsule, and it’s a wonderful way to escape a hectic life for a few hours.

I grew up visiting Amish Country on field trips and day trips with my mom.  It’s such a sweet and innocent way to spend the afternoon with your family or friends.


where to eat


Without a doubt, my favorite restaurant is Der Dutchman in Walnut Creek. 

There are plenty of other restaurant options, but Der Dutchman is so good, I never try anything else lol. 

DO NOT MISS the Der Dutchman Bakery.  You will thank me for this recommendation, pinky swear.

I’ve also heard great things about Rebecca’s Bistro and Olde World Bistro in Berlin.


what to do


Our favorite thing to do is visit The Farm at Walnut Creek.  We love the drive thru zoo! 

So much fun to feed all the different animals.  We also love touring the farm, main house and Dawdy’s house to see how the Amish live their day to day life.



Downtown Sugarcreek is truly a tiny blip on the map, but what is there is the world’s larges cuckoo clock.  If you stop by, try to make it on the hour so you can watch the little Swiss people pop out and dance.

Visiting the cheese factory or chocolate factory is a fun way to see how the Amish have preserved their traditions in cooking and candy making.

For seasonal visits, you can pick your own apples or pumpkins, which is something I really love to do.

On the weekends, the Amish Flea Market takes place.

If you love wood furniture, trinkets, flowers, produce, and so much more, then you need to venture on down to Amish Country.

  • What a cute little town

  • Mindy Diegel

    Such a cute town. I would love to spend a day just wandering around aimlessly taking it all in. A slow day eating good food and wandering is my kinda day.

  • I LOVED following your trip on your stories yesterday – the trip through the zoo was my favourite part but it looks like such a lovely town and beautiful photos looks like such a fun town to travel to and just explore

  • Erin Core

    Looks like so much fun! I have never been to Ohio! That’d be something fun to do someday in the future. Go to Ohio and check out Sugar Creek!

    • Angela Lanter

      You definitely need to go! It’s the cutest little place!

    It brought back memories of our trip to Lancaster, PA another Amish town. It was like going back in time to see the horse and buggies. The Amish are amazing cooks and yes loved the bakeries in the small town. We were on our way to Hershey, PA to see the Hershey’s Chocolate World. You get to go on a ride that takes you through the factory and how they make the candies and at the end you get a treat. It drops you off right at the largest Hershey store I have ever seen and let me say we all left with a lot of Hershey candy including Reeses peanut butter cups Yummy. So, Angela if you want all types of Reeses you need to go here one day.

      That’s so fun! We need to make a trip out there!

  • These are all great tips. If ever I’m in Ohio I will definitely make sure to check out these places. It all looks great.

    This looks so cute and so “Americana”. Don’t have anything like this anywhere close, so adding this to my travel bucket list. Thank you for the recommendation.

    The only Amish place I have ever visited was in Philly! They live such interesting lives. This is a cute little town.

  • Rachel Sparks

    Kenny’s little buns fit right in with the feel of that town! The name Walnut Creek reminds me of Walnut Grove from Little House on the Prairie!
