Destination of the Week: Amana Colonies Area, IA-Amana

Destination of the Week: Amana Colonies Area, IA-Amana

Amana is the best of the towns to begin your visit.  The town has one of the only on-site hotels (a small one), a number of breweries and wineries, restaurants, stores, and the welcome center.  The welcome center is your best bet for information on the other towns, maps, and guided tour programs.  Also in Amana is the Amana Heritage Museum.  The museum’s collection and videos are VERY helpful in understanding the founding of the area by the members of the Community of True Inspiration church.  Finally, Amana is also has the only gas station in the area so fill up while you can!
