Destination of the Week: Shipshewana & LaGrange/Steuben Counties Region, IN-Shipshewana

Destination of the Week: Shipshewana & LaGrange/Steuben Counties Region, IN-Shipshewana

Shipshewana is the big draw for most people visiting the region.  Even then, the entire town is not much more than a few blocks square.  During the summer during auction and flea market season though the city swells to many times its size.  Many of the area’s attractions are located within a mile of city center, making it perfect if a GLCTer wants to just park the car and walk.

A special note-PLEASE be respectful of the Amish and Mennonites in the area.  Photo taking of Amish is normally highly discouraged.  At night, be very watchful of slow moving horse-drawn wagons.
