The Amana Colonies are a group of settlements of radical German Pietists in Iowa. It comprises seven villages. The community is noted for having maintained an almost completely self-sufficient local economy for many decades, with a fairly high standard of living.
Today, Amana is a major tourist attraction known mainly for its restaurants and craft shops, along with woodworking shops, wine shops, and even a brewery called Millstream. The colonies have been listed as a National Historic Landmark since 1965, with heritage tourism being the most popular activity.
