Top Shipshewana Selfie Spots

Whether you’re a selfie taker or prefer a more professional shot, here are the top spots for an awesome photo-op in Shipshewana.

If you’ve been to downtown Shipshewana, you may have come across a neat store called Country Yard Outlet. On your way inside you would’ve walked right past the huge garden gnome. I haven’t heard a name for him yet, so that’s up to you readers to determine.

How about a live selfie? When you’re walking into the Blue Gate Restaurant snap a pic with one of their photogenic horses, they have no problem joining your group.

An overlooked place for a perfect picture is the caboose downtown Shipshewana by the old depot building. Climb on board and snap a part of history. For history buffs, make sure to walk next door to the Shipshewana Historical Society to learn more about our unique past. Outdoor lover? Walk down the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail and travel right along the old railway.

If you told your friends you were going on vacation in Shipshewana, they might say where is that? Track down this sign in the Flea Market to take a pic to show them YOU ARE HERE. And after seeing other pics of your trip, they’ll be wanting to come here themselves!

Grow a set of wings when you visit the Flea Market. Then you won’t be lying when you tell people you’re an angel.
