Things to Do
By Shelby Perry
This edition of Things to Do offers a place to shop close to Grace, a place to grab a coffee downtown, and for the first time in this column, an adventure outside of Warsaw.
108 N Buffalo St Warsaw
10 minutes from Grace
7 a.m. – 9 p.m.
Latte Lounge provides a warm cozy atmosphere to relax in downtown Warsaw. They sell a variety of warm and cold beverages, as well as multiple flavors of ice cream. While sipping on a PSL, you can also browse their selection of Himalayan salt lamps and other salt products, including cooking and beauty products. Latte Lounge also connects to The Cave on the Square, a Himalayan salt cave located in the back of the coffee shop. After enjoying a latte, head into the salt cave for an hour and relax with friends. The cost is $5 per hour. You can check them out on Facebook @LatteLoungeWarsaw, @thecaveonthesquare, or call them at (574) 268-1616.
Potawatomi Wildlife Park
16998 State Road 331, Tippecanoe, Indiana 46580
30 minutes from Grace
Sunrise until Sunset
Although a little bit of a longer drive from Grace, Potawatomi Wildlife Park is worth the time to seek a new adventure outside of Warsaw with friends. It offers a variety of walking and hiking trails for free. If you have a local friend or family member who has a dog, you can bring them along. With the leaves finally changing, the colors of the woods make for beautiful scenery. More information can be found at www.getintonature.com.
804G Park Avenue Winona Lake
2 minutes from Grace
Sun 12 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Mon-Sat 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Although you may have already wandered the shops in Winona, Belove is still the perfect place for fun fall finds. A sister company to MudLOVE, Belove offers clay creations including make-your-own jewelry, mugs, and other pottery creations. They also offer a variety of vintage goods for your home or dorm and some beautiful stationary options. Belove is “a give back gift shop,” so ten percent of each purchase gives back to those in need, providing either clean water through Water for Good, adoption aid grants to Show Hope, or aid that helps fight human trafficking through Destiny Rescue. Check them out at belovegiftshop.com or on Instagram @belovegiftshop.
