Time Out Chicago

Spring break is just around the corner and many families are looking for short getaways that won't break the bank. Judy Sutton Taylor, children's editor of Time Out Chicago magazine suggests five affordable trips. You can drive to all of these destinations in a few hours. This hip all-inclusive where-to-go, what-to-do weekly magazine, featured Amish Acres in its KIDS section in an article entitled "Have car, will travel: Hit the open road with your kids this spring break." The four other attractions recommended included Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village, Dearborn, Michigan; Mammoth Cave, Kentucky; Starved Rock State Park, Utica, Illinois; and Jelly Belly Warehouse Tour in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.

Describing Amish Acres, Ms. Taylor said, "The Amish and Mennonite community in Nappanee has built a thriving tourism industry that draws international visitors who want a taste of the area's famous shoofly pie and distinct culture. Families visiting the farmstead in the spring can tour the grounds in a covered wagon, sample freshly boiled maple syrup and bond with barnyard animals. Overnight lodging packages at the Inn at Amish Acres are available, and your kids will be psyched to know that, contrary to traditional Amish custom, the rooms are outfitted with cable TV." It's always nice to hear it from someone else.
