'Paradise for plain people:' The Amish who live in Florida community where bicycles and solar-powered buggies are more common
May 1, 2013
Every winter, scores of Amish and Mennonites flock to a small Florida community that is built around their way of life, where buggies powered by the sun and three-wheeled bicycles are more common on the streets than cars.
Pinecraft Park in Sarasota has been called 'paradise for plain people' as the top vacation spot for people who like to live a simpler life without too many modern amenities.
'You just assume that everybody you see, especially in the wintertime, is Amish and Mennonite,' Katie Troyer, who blogs about the community, told NBC's today's show.
