For lunch, check out Popeye's Soda Shop, a retro 50's style diner. Be sure to stop for a photo op in front of the World's Largest Basket before taking the Dresden Shuttle to visit The Longaberger Homestead. Here you can visit more shops, take a basket making tour and even make your own basket.
I found great deals on second quality baskets and pottery at the Factory Store. Be sure to check out the websites for more information on all the great things Dresden and Longaberger have to offer, including package deals on hotels, dining, tours and events...then invite a girlfriend or two for a day trip or make a weekend out of it.
