A Different Shopping Experience
Shopping is slow-paced and leisurely. There are no traffic jams; but, sometimes you must wait a moment while a horse and buggy is making a left turn.
First, you should start with Arcola Flower Patch. It houses a fine-art gift shop. It also features herbs and garden plants from mid-April to July.
The area is unique for its Amish influence. The Amish land of Arcola and Arthur have many different shopping experiences.
