Shipshewana is home to the third largest Amish community in the country, plus it is famous for having the Midwest's largest flea market and many hand crafted goods. It's also home to many parks and beautiful drives where drivers can take in scenic views.
The top attractions in Shipshewana are the local, traditional things. Head down to the enormous flea market where shoppers can find aisles and aisles of vendors, antiques, and vintage items. Admire over 30 hand-painted quilt murals on the LaGrange County Barn Quilt Trail or join the Walldogs Trail where visitors can see hand painted murals that were created in 2014 when a group of international painters and mural artists came to the town to paint murals all over. Known locally as Walldogs.
