Get on the Buggy Wheel Trail this year!
An Amish community vacation may be the perfect trip for you to see and experience the Amish this year. We at The Amish of Ethridge want you to experience the Amish community and the points of interest along the way! We will use Tennessee in our example since we are in Tennessee. Ethridge is between Nashville, Tennessee, and Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where music, barbeque, and whiskey are nationally known. We believe including other places to see along the way will only enhance your Amish visit!
We have a southern and northern mega route and more sectional routes to give you a road trip you won't forget! These routes are in these categories by interstates and roads, so a state can be recognized as a northern state but be connected to a southern route. We use Ethridge as the spoke of the buggy wheel trail for reference, but you can start where you are! If coming from the west, it is best to fly in and rent a car so we start every trip from a city with an airport.
Our Recommended List of Steps
Visiting the Amish is relatively easy. However, with some preparation, you can plan your trip knowing you will be choosing your route and finding what you need to include in your itinerary of things to see along the way! See the steps below to find out how you need to plan your Amish adventure!
Find a Community
Below are two button links to pages with routes to travel and each state. Find a route you want to travel, and then see what community and points of interest you may want to see along the way!
Find a Route
The Amish communities are out in the country, so something with wheels is necessary to see them. Find a route from our page that you want to use or a road that can take you to the community you want!
Find your places
Once you have found your community and route, see our state guide! You will see other points of interest between communities and be able to put them into your itinerary for your road trip or none at all. You decide!
The Amish Routes and State Points of Interest
These maps of routes are for those who want an extended vacation or have the time to spend in several Amish communities. The map of states lists the Amish communities known in each state and the other points of interest along the way. We believe a person or group could reasonably choose a section of the route each year and go on that route until they complete the entire trail! The Buggy Wheel Trail is perfect for families with kids, so we talk extensively about child activities!
Map of Routes
We have looked and found the roadways between each known Amish community and have listed them on this page. These communities are outside of town in the country, so we have chosen significant roadways and findable roads that can safely take you to the places we list. These routes are just a reference; if you decide on a better way to your destination, then take it. These routes are only meant as a general guide.

Map of states
We list each significant Amish community we could find in each state. We chose the largest communities as they would more likely have a tourism-supported environment for those unfamiliar with the Amish way of life. In addition, each of these states has points of interest along the way that we feel would be attractive to the road trip traveler! These points of interest are mentioned as possibilities, and you can choose which ones you want to include based on time and length of stay. Then, see them listed on each state's information guide!
Whoops! You caught up to us! Check back often to see if we have typed more about this Amish Tour of the Eastern USA! See the link below and access the Tennessee version of the map to see what we have planned for the rest of the country.
We have a Tennessee Amish Map webpage showing the state of Tennessee with Amish communities and the hotel areas on one page! We use four sections to explain each Amish Trail and how they flow into one another. You can add points of interest along the way to complete your perfect itinerary!
