ILLINOIS AMISH DAY-TO-DAY ITINERARY
DAY 1:Located in a historic bank in the heart of Tuscola, The Vault Art Gallery is an artist-owned cooperative with 50 local artist owners. Making art for everyone is core to its mission, with a variety of mediums for sale. Participate in a meet-and-greet as your group hears from one of the local artists on their work and take some time to see the depth of talent in Central Illinois.
The Amish buggy is a common sight in the Illinois Amish country and you won’t leave without getting to ride one. Visit a local Amish buggy maker and experience an in-depth tour of his buggy shop. See the ins and outs of creating the undercarriage, the buggy body and listen as a buggy maker discusses the old art of wheel making. Finish up the tour with a short buggy ride, completing the true Amish experience.
