Group Attractions, Dining, Shopping

Group Attractions
The attractions and experiences of Amish Country are ideal for groups. Stops in the towns of Nappanee, Middlebury and Shipshewana give groups a taste of relaxed small-town life with a distinctly Amish flair. In Nappanee, Amish Acres features an immersive Amish Country experience spread over 80 acres of historic farm. And Das Dutchman Essenhaus in Middlebury is nationally recognized for its family-style restaurant and bakery offering 31 delicious varieties of pie. For the thrill of a deal, the Shipshewana Flea Market is a must.

The Quilt Gardens along the Heritage Trail, feature 18 vibrant quilt-themed gardens and 21 outdoor quilt murals displayed in the seven communities throughout the destination. Each garden is a unique work of art.

A wide variety of museums and galleries also add a pleasant depth to our group tours. Places such as Ruthmere, an elegant 1910 Beaux-arts mansion, or Midwest Museum of American Art featuring Indiana’s largest Norman Rockwell collection, impress and delight groups.

Group Dining
Whether it’s hefty platters of homemade favorites at our well-known family-style restaurants, house specialties at downtown eateries, in-home Amish meals, daily specials at local diners, or quick bites at popular chains, the food always comes with a smile. And be sure to save room for dessert!

Group Shopping
Featuring a variety of shopping experiences from locally run Amish country stores to flea markets and upscale Vera Bradley, gift and apparel shopping, your group will love to spend time wondering the Amish Country backroads and downtowns for the latest treasures.
