The Adel Partners, Madison County, and Indianola Chambers of Commerce have partnered up to create a self-guided holiday shopping and dining rural road trip through their communities, as well as the City of Earlham. Shoppers are encouraged to visit as many of these communities as they can for a shopping and dining experience like no other. Each town has a map highlighting their Chamber members’ retail, dining and beverage businesses, which visitors can pick up at select merchants in each community or access here. Over 55 shops, 24 restaurants, and 13 wineries/breweries/pubs are being featured throughout.
