The Amana Colonies are a unique and quaint Iowa destination that will definitely charm you with shops, restaurants, wineries and a wide array of fun activities. This is a great place to go when you just want to take a day to get away to a place that represents a simpler time.

The Amana Colony is comprised of seven villages in Iowa County. The villages are Amana, East Amana, High Amana, Middle Amana, South Amana, West Amana and Homestead. The villages were built and settled by German Pietists seeking isolated surroundings and a communal, simple life away from modern society.
