Charming Small Town America

At around 700 residents, Shipshewana is definitely considered a small Midwest town. During the summer, it is normal for us to have more visitors than residents here!

Our downtown is only a few blocks in size, but is packed full of cute stores, shops and boutiques along streets, boardwalks and alleyways. Our visitors love the slower pace and enjoy exploring all the special places around town.

When you check a map, we know we might not look like much compared to some of the big flashy vacation spots. But each year hundreds of thousands of visitors choose Shipshewana for our charm, our warm hospitality, and our good old-fashioned values.
