Chouteau is a small town with a big, friendly feel where visitors can hunt for treasures in antique shops and learn more about the area’s Amish influence at the unique shops and restaurants. Come hungry to the Amish Cheese House or the Dutch Pantry Restaurant and Bakery and fill up on hearty homemade fare and treats made by local Amish bakers. Time your visit just right and add the Black Buggy Day Festival to your vacation. Black Buggy Day offers a chance to get to know Amish community members along with games, tasty treats and other Amish-style festivities. Be sure to include a visit to Mazie Landing in your plans where you can fish, boat and enjoy the water.
