Bus Trip to Shipshewana

Oct 7 2014 8:15 am

The Morris Library is taking a bus trip on October 7, 2014 to Shipshewana, Indiana.

ShipshewanaTake a step back in time..... to Shipshewana! In Shipshewana you'll find buggy rides, all sorts of tours from furniture making, to cheese making, to trips down country lanes. Famous for some of the best shopping in Amish country, Shipshewana has over 125 delightful shops, which are open all year. There is definitely a wide variety of stores filled with quilts, antiques, crafts, tools, and much more!

Autumn along the Amish backroads  is almost magical. The harvest is in. The aromas of freshly baked goods-- especially the dozens of different pies-- fill the air. Color is in the leaves, the markets and on the tables as the bounty of the summer is shared with friends and family. Whether you're doing some early holiday shopping, seeking fresh, farm-grown produce for canning and preserving or just in the mood to wander among artisans while enjoying the first crisp air of the season, there's nothing quite like the markets in Shipshewana.

$32.00 per person includes transportation to Shipshewana, located in La Grange County, Indiana. The trip is just under 3 hours, however there will be a stop halfway to get out and stretch.The bus leaves the library at 8:30 AM and will return to Morris at approximately 7:45 PM. Beware-- A long day and lots of walking!

SPECIAL!  Register and pay by September 7 and you will be entered into a drawing. Two people will go for FREE!
