Just outside of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We arrived for APFELFEST (apple fest) on a beautiful warm Fall day! German food, beer, arts & crafts, historic buildings, music and more. See the link for the history of the 7 villages and what to see and do if you visit the area. I’m including LOTS of photos for you armchair travelers ❤️ We greatly enjoyed our day learning about original commune of Amana who fled religious persecution in Germany.
