Amana Colonies

"Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it.  Once you've lost it, you can never get it back."

We get up towards Iowa City fairly often to go shopping (life's greatest pleasure Smile), and the Amana Colonies is on our way to the Williamsburg outlet mall.  So we did stop once.  I don't remember much about it, but you could walk through this little town and see different trades and there was tons of stuff to buy.  To the best of my recollection, it didn't remind me so much of the Amish as it did the early pioneer type people.  It felt like a reenactment kind of thing.  That was a long time ago, so I really don't remember much about it.  BUT... I can tell you as you drive through on the Interstate/Hwy/whatever it is, EVERYTHING from the gas stations to the restaraunts have an "Amana" associated name, so to me it really seems like quite the tourist area.  But I am sure there is something to be learned there if you were to take the time.  Me, I am usually rushing off to get as much shopping done before I have to get home Wink
