Want A Trip Back in Time? Consider An All-Inclusive Vacation In Ohio Amish Country

It makes sense to disconnect from life in Brockville every once in a while, to try something new and come back refreshed and rejuvenated, because that's what great vacations must do. If you ever fancy something interesting like a trip back in time, we offer all-inclusive vacation packages to Ohio Amish Country. To this day, the Amish, who migrated to Pennsylvania during the 1700s and spread across the Midwest and Canada, refuse to use modern-day conveniences. They avoid automobiles, phones, and electricity, dress plainly and even avoid using buttons on clothing. There's no place quite like this anywhere on Earth, and our travel agency in Brockville offers you a chance to see how these people have lived for centuries.

Back In Time

Start your all-inclusive vacation package to Ohio Amish Country by immersing yourself among the largest Amish settlement in the world! This trip allows you to partake of good old-fashioned Amish meals and also gives you access to an Amish home and local theatre while showing you how daily items are handmade.

Get A History Lesson

When you pick a travel agency like Howard Travel in Brockville, you get a local guide who accompanies you on a comprehensive tour, gives you a delicious Amish breakfast and whisks you off to places like Coblentz Leather (where you can purchase fine handmade leather goods) and the David Warther Carvings Museum, with a stop at Sugarcreek, also known as the Little Switzerland of Ohio.

Shop Till You Drop

No vacation to Ohio Amish Country is complete without shopping stops at Hershberger Baskets, Lehman’s Hardware and Ashery’s Bulk Food Store. While the first two offer high-quality wood decor and gifts, the latter sells cheeses, pasta, dried fruit, deli meats and lots more for foodies and hungry tourists alike.

Heritage and Tradition

The best part of an all-inclusive vacation package to Ohio Amish Country is firsthand access to traditions at places like the Amish & Mennonite Heritage Center and the Holmes County Flea Market.

Best Deals at Top Travel Agency Howard Travel

Howard Travel is the travel agency in Brockville to turn to for your future vacation plans. Travel agencies are often an afterthought, but we can help you to find some of the best deals around. One vacation that often gets overlooked is an all-inclusive vacation.

There are a few reasons why you should choose a vacation hot spot that’s all-inclusive.

  • Remove Stress from the Equation

One of the biggest reasons to go all-inclusive is that it takes a lot of stress out of the journey. Often, everything from airfare to things to do is included in your all-inclusive package price from our travel agency in Brockville. That means you pay one price, and no worries about finding the cheapest flight or trying to locate all of the hot restaurants. Spend your vacation relaxing rather than stressing.

  • Saves You Money

Going the route of an all-inclusive vacation through a travel agency in Brockville is often a money-saver in addition to a stress-reducer. Having much of your travel in the initial bill will help to save you money. You’ll usually get cheaper pricing through this option in addition to not knowing how much you’re going to spend during your trip. Your meals, drinks, and often many activities are already in the price, so you don’t have to worry about running out of money.

  • Keeps You Safe

Many of the all-inclusive vacations available today are at places that are self-contained. You can still visit beautiful and exotic regions, but often the resorts are some of the safest places to stay at around the world.

  • Better Quality

There’s probably been a time when you’ve planned a trip based on website pictures and find that they don’t live up to the reality of the place you’re staying at during the actual vacation. Going through an all-inclusive deal through a travel agency helps to ensure your quality. Your travel agents will have visited the property and decided that it was worth the value.

  • Huge Variety of Options

Another great benefit of going all-inclusive is that there’s a vast variety of options for you to fit everyone’s budget and needs. You can choose from a beach getaway for the family to a romantic cruise and everywhere in between.
