We spent a day visiting all the interesting shops (furniture, meat, woolen mill, antique, clothing, quilt/craft, and General stores) in Amana, Iowa. The shopkeepers were very welcoming and helpful!! Make sure you purchase some "Amana Beets" at the General Store or the Meat Shop before you leave - the beets are excellent and sell out quickly! We had an excellent meal at the Ronneburg Restaurant and the wait staff was also excellent. Serena's Coffee Cafe in Amana is a great place to take a break from shopping - be sure to try one of their refreshing/filling root beer floats!!! If you are looking for more shopping in the area, make sure you check out the Tanger Outlet Mall in nearby Williamsburg. We stayed at the wonderful Homewood Suites in nearby Coralville and found it conveniently located to the Amana Colonies, Tanger Outlet, and the Coral Ridge Mall.
