Enjoy a Winter Getaway in Shipshewana

Small Town Charm in the Cozy Winter Season

The winter season in Shipshewana is like nowhere else. Like something out of a Hallmark movie, the town comes to life every day with the smells of fresh baked cinnamon rolls, the jingling bells of shop doors, the clip-clopping of horse’s hooves, and the friendly laughter of people enjoying Shipshewana’s Small-Town Charms.

Whether you’re riding the antique carousel at Davis Mercantile, shopping for unique, handmade gifts on historic Harrison St., sitting down with family and friends to a warm, delicious Amish meal, or catching a show at the Performing Arts Center or Music Hall, you’ll find there just isn’t enough time to do and see everything possible. Plan your dream-like winter getaway today, and make sure you give yourself at least a few days to experience all the Small-Town Charm Shipshewana has to offer.
