This is a series of blogs covering a 21 day road-trip my wife and I made through eight New England States during the month of September – Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
I’ve covered Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and New York to date.
Chapter 6 – Although we hated to leave Niagara Falls and were not looking forward to driving all day again (in the rain I must add), we did look forward to our destination, Intercourse, Pennsylvania. This is actually a wonderful little Amish town that turned out to be one of the highlights of our entire trip. As I mentioned in our last blog, we would have never thought of going here had it not been for a group of traveling ladies we met in Vermont that told us all about it.
During our drive we made reservations for the night at a great place called “The Inn” at Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse. The accommodations were simply spectacular. We enjoyed this location so much that we were going to stay another night (or two), however, there was a festival in town and everything was booked solid for miles around. Darn, to bad for us.
We were up early the next morning and after breakfast we meandered around the village and enjoyed the many shops, an Amish buggy ride through town, the festival, a local band playing, the wonderful atmosphere, the great weather, and terrific food, including some Kettle Korn. If you’re ever near this little town, don’t pass it by, stop and enjoy.

Our next stop is Connecticut.
Hope you enjoy…
