What Are the Amana Colonies

The Amana Colonies are a group of seven small German villages located southwest of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The villages were founded over 150 years ago and their purpose is to keep up traditional German heritage.

There are historical sites, restaurants, shops, and they frequently have special events.

Relaxing Day Trip

It's a fun place to have a "girls day out". A very low-key place where you find friendly, hospitable locals. You will enjoy checking out the shops and just walking around and looking at the interesting old buildings. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time.
