Indoors in Amish Country

As we head into November it’s time to start thinking about fun things to do indoors in Amish Country.  Here is my top three:

1.  The Elkhart Historical Museum-Take trip through Elkhart County history, see life the way it used to be and never leave the building! The museums staff does a great job of making it interesting.
2.  The Old Bag Factory– Step into artisans’ workshops and find handmade gifts that aren’t mass produced at this crafters marketplace.  Time and quality goes into items here – fantastic quilts, handcrafted pottery, and sculpture. Find that one-of-a-kind Christmas gift. You don’t even have to leave for lunch; the charming Trolley Café makes it delicious.
3.  Midwest Museum of American Art– Spend a few of hours here and lift your spirits on a dreary day.  Right now talented regional artists are exhibiting their best works from paintings and pottery to sculpture. Be sure to see the huge Norman Rockwell collection on the second floor.

I hope you get a chance to visit at least one of these places in the coming weeks. And let me know your favorite place to spend time inside in Amish Country.
