Our beautiful country roads, friendly atmosphere, and delicious culinary indulgences are why we say, “take the back roads to the sweet life” and “leave a little sweeter than you came.” Most visitors quickly find the local culture at Mrs. Wick’s Pie Shop (it sits just next to Wick’s Pie Factory!). Wick’s made the Sugar Cream Pie famous and when the state of Indiana named the Sugar Cream as the state pie, it also named Winchester as its pie capital.
The specialty foods do not stop with our pies. The edible artwork of Ghyslain Chocolatier will have you daydreaming about your next visit the moment you leave. We can also boast about our award-winning Wilson Wines; Main Street Coffee Company, Coe’s Noodles, and numerous gourmet bakers.
Another must-see attraction includes the legendary Winchester Speedway that has been stirring excitement since the early 1900’s. All the big names in racing know they better have it on their resumes.
In addition, no one can visit without a trip to Silver Towne, L.P. This amazing attraction appears to be a mansion, but houses showrooms for rare coins, collectibles, and jewelry. It also has its own mint!
To get all you can out of Randolph County, however, you have to dig a little deeper…and it is worth it. Take time to visit the local shops and get to know the owners who make them so special. Many are located within one of our three Indiana Main Street districts. We are also home to over a hundred fine artisans. Many have showrooms or have their wares available at fairs and our multiple galleries. Roadside markets and working farms will be a perfect learning opportunity and chance to purchase fresh local products. Museums and historical sites will captivate and intrigue you.
You need time to soak it all in. So reserve a room. It will take days and many visits to experience it all!
