A respectful way to learn about our Amish neighbors and an enjoyable way to visit them and their shops.
The Amish Backroads Tour TMThe Amish Backroads Tour is a pleasantly narrated audio recording that directs you to Amish shops and points of interest “off the beaten path.” I’ve been offering the tour on CD for several years through local shops in Lanesboro and Harmony, Minnesota, and find that many people like going at their own pace in their own car. That’s the way my family and I like to go! It is now also available as a download to your mobile devices.Driving time is about 1½ hours and you can take as much or as little time as you like at each stop.You can buy the download of the Amish Backroads Tour by clicking the BUY NOW button at the top of this website or rent the CD during regular business hours from the businesses listed on the “Where to Rent” page of this website. Keep the CD for up to 5 days and return it during regular business hours. No reservations are needed. I hope you will take the Amish Backroads Tour and enjoy learning about the history and culture of our wonderful Amish neighbors, seeing the beauty of the backroads scenery, and perhaps finding some Amish treasures and treats along the way. —Your Tour Guide, Les Nelson
