Discover Kalona - Tristate Departure

Join us as we spend the day in Kalona, Iowa - the quilt capitol of Southeast Iowa and the largest Amish settlement west of the Mississippi!



It’s time to enjoy a fun day out in Kalona with your friends and Trailways Travel! Join your friendly on-board tour host as you board the deluxe motorcoach at the available departure location of your choice. Your first stop is a "hidden gem" that has now been found by so many that they have expanded their building to accommodate the business. Golden Delight Bakery is located down one of the Amish/Mennonite country roads where you will find the most delicious caramel pecan cinnamon rolls ever! Enjoy a homemade doughnut and a cup of coffee and be sure to take a package of the cinnamon rolls and maybe some bread or a pie or two home with you for later! They also have a selection of beautiful furniture, household items, and more.


We then arrive at the Kalona Historical Village Visitors Center where you will meet our guide and be given a short overview of Kalona. Enjoy the quilt galleries and the gift shop in the village as well. Make a stop at JK Creative Woods where you can enjoy the beautiful woodworking from a family that has been crafting one-of-a-kind wooden desks and dining accessories for 34 years and counting.


Lunch today is a real treat with a homemade meal in a Mennonite home before a tour of the Amish Buggy Shop. Here you will see and learn more about the many Amish buggies you will see on the roads while out and about.


Also in store this afternoon is a noodle-making demonstration and candy making as well. Again, be sure to take some home for later! You will also have free time this afternoon for browsing in the many shops downtown, on your own, and be sure to notice the quilt blocks in the downtown sidewalks. It’s sure to be a fun, relaxing day in beautiful Kalona!
