Destination of the Week: Amana Colonies Area, IA-High Amana, West Amana, and South Amana

Destination of the Week: Amana Colonies Area, IA-High Amana, West Amana, and South Amana

High Amana, West Amana, and South Amana make up the balance of the Amana Colonies proper.  While the number and quality of attractions is a bit iffy, you still will want to spend some time, jump out of your auto, and walk the towns.  Almost all of the housing stock is original, and especially in the summer, glowing with gardens.
