Shipshewana, Indiana – Amish town
Once we left Cleveland, we drove straight to Indiana to very small town called Shipshewana. We found it in a guidebook during planning our USA trip. What really lead us there was the curiosity as what is the mid-west like, its agricultural character, people and also the history which is so connected to the European heritage. Shipshewana is also special for its Amish community. This is a very example as how the States are diverse and how different cultures cohabit within the same nation.
It is a little bit touristic place, particularly the main cross roads in the town but not in a flashy and disturbing way. It is enough to buy a souvenir and eat some delicious local food in the restaurant. We stayed in a high standard motel that is owned by an Amish family.
