Heritage Trail Driving Tour, Elkhart & LaGrange Co

Slow down and enjoy Amish Country

The 90-mile Heritage Trail Driving Tour winds through Amish Country, taking you down rural highways, country lanes and charming main streets. 

In Goshen, the Old Bag Factory is a turn-of-the-century factory turned shopper’s paradise. At Kercher’s Sunrise Orchard, grab a basket and pick your own apples or stroll the pumpkin patch for the perfect jack-o-lantern.

In Nappanee, visit Amish Acres Historic Farm and Heritage Resort. This 80-acre resort offers a variety of activities that will keep you busy from sunrise to sunset. 

Stop in Shipshewana to stroll the shop-lined streets, where you’ll find handcrafted items, baked goods and the Midwest’s largest flea market. Treat yourself to a horse-drawn buggy ride or ride the restored 1906 carousel at the Davis Mercantile. The Fall Crafters Fair, held October 5-7, features artisans, quilters, carvers, painters, musicians and cloggers. 

Enjoy a delightful Amish meal and then settle in for a good night’s sleep at Das Dutchman Essenhaus in Middlebury. The Village Shops include home accents in Dutch Country Gifts, Christmas ornaments in The Cabin, women’s and children’s fashions at The ClothesLine, and, of course, handmade coziness at The Quilt Shop.
