Things to Do

A wide variety to choose from

You’ll find a wide variety of activities to do in the Amana Colonies.  We are famous for our unique history, to best enjoy your visit we suggest a stop at our Amana Heritage Museum.  Once you understand our past you will better enjoy our present.

You’ll also note the many special events and festivals that are spread out through the year.  Some reflect our heritage and culture while others are just plain fun.

One thing you will notice is that we like to eat and drink in the Colonies, in fact, we are famous for our foods, wines, and beers.  Amana Colonies restaurants have been serving family-style meals of over 75 years but we offer more than the traditional fare these days.

Are you a shopper?  You’ll find wonderful small shops, each will specialize in a certain type of craft or item.  Many products are made here in our small villages while we also offer products from far away places.

Art in its many forms is also part of our heritage.  The Amana Art Guild has classes that you can take and local artist display their works in galleries and shops throughout the villages.

Want to experience and enjoy the scenic land in our river valley?  We have nature and biking trails along with the Iowa River for you to explore.

We invite you to come to the Colonies, stay a few days, and discover all there is to do.
