Ride your bike through one of the largest Amish settlements in the United States and embrace the lifestyle of the Amish in Nappanee, Indiana. Pedal along the scenic countryside as you share the road with the picturesque black buggies and the clip-clop of horses’ hooves. Pass shingle shops, pristine Amish farms and schoolhouses, while learning the history, culture, crafts and culinary delights of Amish and Mennonite peoples.


Highlights

• Enjoy a professional live musical production in the majestic 1911 Round Barn Theatre.
• Visit a traditional one-room Amish School to learn the ways of the Amish education system, and see how traditional buggies and carriages are made at a buggy shop.
