"You'll Find Love in Sugarcreek", one of the Amish-theme movies that we've watched recently. It inspired and sparked the kids interest to go see how it's like to be in Sugarcreek during the Fall. Our neighbor mentioned to us that if we pass Sugarcreek and go a little ways, there is another Amish community that is bigger than Sugarcreek that we can explore. I think we will try to find it next time.
I don't know what it is in Sugarcreek that we love going back there all the time. It is a bit far from where we live but we do enjoy seeing the countryside so whenever we have time, that's the first place we want to go.
The sight of the horse carriage always excites the kids. It also reminds me of my paternal grandpa for some reason.
It wasn't crowded when we first got there so we took the opportunity to take some pictures. We have been here many times but every time, there so many people so we don't take pictures of us but this time, we were able to take a few shots before it got crowded again.
It's definitely different and with the little town's Swiss style architecture surrounding the clock, you would say "Oh wow, what a neat feature!" The history of it is interesting and the show on the hour and the half our is great.
So what exactly this cuckoo clock do? This clock is in the Guinness Book of world records as the largest cuckoo clock in the world. Every half an hour the bird "cuckoo's", then the five piece band beautifully carved was playing as two other figures, a woman and man danced away and when the band's music stopped they all went back in to the clock. It's really entertaining to watch.
We haven't been there in the winter but I heard that the water feature on this clock is close during those times. So if you are in Sugarcreek for the first time, this cute little gem is a must see.
Have a blessed Christmas everybody!
That giant cuckoo clock is awesome. What a fun place to visit. Love all the pictures of the town and different places.ReplyDelete
You have done a great job on the recap of your trip. There are so many wonderful colors in the pics. It looks like you all had a ball.ReplyDelete
What a wonderfully quaint looking little town. I love all the small shops and just the look of it all. Merry Christmas.ReplyDelete
SugarCreek looks incredible, I love how the autumnal leaves had come out and made the all place look.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, this would be SO cool to see. We're actually visiting Ohio in the summer, I'll have to see if we can make it over to see this!ReplyDelete
I've been to a few Amish communities since I live about ten minutes from a large one. They're a ton of fun. This one looks amazing!ReplyDelete
Looks like a great place to visit in the fall - love the foliage! I haven't been to Ohio in a while, but this sounds like a fun destination to explore with the family.ReplyDelete
We've been passing Ohio (Columbus, Cincinnati) going to Buffalo and TN. But too bad we didn't even manage to stop by to any of Ohio's family attraction. Its always nice to see your family doing things together and having a great time vacationing.ReplyDelete
My older cousins who live in MI took their kids here during a road trip this summer. Next time I’m driving that way I’ll have to check it out.ReplyDelete
I love your adventures in Sugarcreek. Such a detailed post about what you saw - I would love to travel there with my family. I don't know when I can go to Switzerland next, but this place would be an absolutely fascinating place to visit!ReplyDelete
That place looks so fun, and I'd never heard of it before. Will have to add it to my to-visit list!ReplyDelete
Your vivid description of that very nice part of Ohio is awesome. But, being a history buff, your photo and description of the Giant Cuckoo Clock got my earnest attention. Happy holidays from the Philippines!ReplyDelete
