Travel the Historic Heritage Trail with an Audio Guide Tour to see Amish Crafters, Gardens and Great Towns
The acclaimed self-guided Heritage Trail driving tour is your personal guide to that Amish furniture shop hidden away on a peaceful rural road, the city gallery with one-of-a-kind jewelry and that shady riverside park just right for a picnic. You’ll experience history on some stretches of this 90-mile loop, with stops at places like the 1835 Bonneyville Mill, which still grinds grain today or at the tombstone on the grave of William Tufts in the Bonneyville Cemetary that notes his service in the Revolutionary War – and at the Boston Tea Party.
As you explore, the free audio guide (your choice of a CD or downloadable MP3) regales you with colorful stories of the region’s settlement and growth, its heroes and scalawags. All the while, following detailed directions on your vehicle’s CD player – or even your iPod – you can reach every hidden corner of a region that the editors of Life named “one of the top places to see in your lifetime.” Ready to go? Just pick up your free CD and map at the Elkhart County Visitor Center or download both at AmishCountry.org.
