Northern Indiana Amish Country offers groups one-of-a-kind experiences, and our “Top Stops” deliver what groups want. Family-owned Das Dutchman Essenhaus provides a country escape with its Inn, family-style dining, home-style bakery and specialty shops. The Shipshewana Flea Market, the Midwest’s largest, is a bargain hunter’s dream. Quilt loving groups grab a slice of fun shop-hopping on the “Pieces, Pies & Posies” tour. And flower power is guaranteed seeing the ABA Top 100 Quilt Gardens along the Heritage Trail.
