North Judson, Indiana has a slew of interesting shops or restaurants.

This Starke County town had really nice buildings with very unique features.

You know I love those old downtowns. Just take a look at that cute red shop on the corner. I bet that second floor makes a neat apartment!

I would have loved to have stepped inside “The Last Dime Store Alive” but, alas, they were closed.   Peeking inside through the windows made me interested so I’m sure it would be a worthwhile stop if you are in the area.  Lots of area history, which I find fascinating.

I say it all the time…small Indiana towns are known for having strange, strange items and things you just don’t see anywhere else and North Judson is no different.  I think the funky (and kind of scary) lion in the window proves me right yet again.  That thing definitely comes alive at night!

Go There

Still, I’m really glad that FingerHut Bakery and Route 10 Bar and Grill were open. Those are fantastic! North Judson, Indiana is certainly worth a day trip.

    LOL. Yep that sounds like North Judson to me! Not too hard to get around since they only have one or two stop lights…LOL We’ll be heading there this summer so the kids can see their grandparents.
