There is no place else in Ohio that encapsulates the essence of Autumn as does Ohio's Amish Country. The glistening sun spotlights the crimson and golden leaves amid the panoramic, rolling countryside, all for your viewing enjoyment. This showcase of color is one of the best you'll find in the Buckeye State.
During the summer month's I posted our Staycation Adventures through Amish Country; read Part One and Part Two. These posts will help you plan the best trip possible if you're not familiar with the Walnut Creek and Sugar Creek areas. And, it will introduce you to the Der Dutchman Restaurant and Carlisle Gifts, today's giveaway sponsor.
NOW for the Giveaway: The generous folks at the Der Dutchman Restaurant are offering dinner for two at their fantastic, yummy establishment along with a $25 gift certificate to Carlisle Gifts (there is seriously not another gift shop around as beautiful as this place). And because the fine people at Dutchman Hospitality love to spread the wealth, they are offering 2 additional $25 gift certificates to Carlisle Gifts, as well. Not from Ohio and not planning to visit any time soon? No problem! Carlisle Gifts has a great online store carrying beautiful hardwood cutting boards, adorable wooden biscuit cutters, oh, I can go on and on. So be sure to enter no matter where you are from!
