Charming Small Town America
With under 1,000 residents, and a downtown that’s only a few square blocks, it may seem like any typical small Midwestern town, but there is nothing typical about Shipshewana. Visitors come to Shipshewana from all across the country, and all over the world. In fact, we welcome so many visitors to our lovely home, that it’s not unusual to have more guests than residents!
Our shopping districts are small in size, but packed full of interesting stores, restaurants, and antiques. Visitors to Shipshewana love to explore the many floors and stores of Davis Mercantile, and Yoder’s Red Barn Shoppes, and the nooks and crannies of the boardwalk, alleyways, and small side streets of the downtown.
Still others like to visit Shipshewana for charm, warm hospitality, and an old-fashioned way of life.
