By now, it’s probably pretty obvious that I love Victorian era homes and shops and the small town of Plymouth, Indiana certainly fits the bill!
With bright colors and the unexpected flourish, this is a particularly handsome downtown. Especially when you include the stately courthouse.
Downtown Plymouth, Indiana
Park the car and walk around not only the downtown, but a chunk of Michigan Street as well. This long main drag is lined with amazing home after amazing home.
Plymouth, Indiana has a rather large number of shops for a small Indiana town. There’s even a neat old-fashioned movie theater. Clothing, antiques, and one of a kinds interrupted by the occasional café, restaurant, pub, or office.
Once the shopping is out of the way, reward the kiddies with a trip to Centennial Park. There are a mess of paved running/biking/roller blading trails and a huge wooden playground that can’t be beat.
It has lots of creative nooks, crannies, and bridges for kids to climb up and crawl through — there’s even a jail! I love it! I mean, the kid loves it.
Things to Do in Plymouth
Anyway, Plymouth, Indiana is also home to the world-famous Blueberry Festival (ok, maybe not world famous, but you would think so to hear my husband talk about it!).
The Blueberry Festival does happen to be the largest three day festival in the Midwest, with the biggest craft section I have seen so far.
There are also carnival games, kids rides, and a bunch of those nausea inducing, gravity defying rides for brave souls (yeah, NO). A marathon and hot air balloon events round things out the weekend.
Aside from the Blueberry Festival, the summer brings a nice farmers’ market on River and East Garro.
Choose from locally grown and mostly inexpensive farm fresh produce as well as a smattering of other locally made wares and crafts. You never know what you are going to find. Tip: Do a walk-through first THEN buy after you have a chance to compare prices and quality!
It’s a really nice looking town. I’m hoping to get back there one of these days and stay in one of the super cute bed and breakfasts. When I do…you’ll be the first to know!
