It's a big month for Amish country. School is out and the summer vacations are in full swing. There is so much to do in Amish country and we have put together yet another fantastic edition for you to use to plan your trips to the Amish Heartland.

Looking for something fun for the whole family? Check out Rolling Ridge Ranch, just a few short miles outside of Berlin. Hop on a horse-drawn wagon, grab your bucket of pellets and prepare for an experience like no other. Once those large gates open, you are greeted by some of the most exotic animals you have ever encountered.

Touch the nose of a zebra, feel the velvet antlers of an elk and hold on tight to your food buckets. It's amazing to see just how close some of these animals will get to humans. Some might even try to climb right up into the wagon with you.

Spend the evening in Sugarcreek enjoying one of the most raved about musicals in the area. "The Confession, a musical," returns for a final season at the Carlisle Inn, Sugarcreek. If you haven't yet been to see this outstanding performance, be sure to get your tickets fast. Read the review on page 14.

Planning on re-furnishing your home? Before you leave, be sure to stop by Troyer Furniture in Sugarcreek. Beachy and his team have worked very hard to make sure that each and every customer that walks through the door feels at home and finds exactly what they need. According to Beachy, the best days are yet to come for Troyer Furniture.

We also feature our Spring Photo Contest winners in this edition of Amish Heartland, and let me tell you, there were a handful of excellent submissions. We have been very pleased with the turnout for these photo contests, even if it does make my job harder when it comes to picking our winners. Keep the photos coming. I love seeing Amish country through our readers' eyes!
