Things to Do in Indiana

Because Indiana has a long history with cars - from manufacturing to racing, find many transportation museums. Southern Indiana is dominated by limestone and natural attractions like caves, the Ohio River and Indian mounds; to the north is Indian Dunes on Lake Michigan. Find plenty of things to do tied to Presidents Abraham Lincoln and William Henry Harrison, and George Rogers Clark. Explore Amish communities or go snow skiing. Columbus is filled with buildings designed by some of the world’s most renowned architects. Nearby find Brown County with artists and covered bridges.  Notre Dame and Purdue draw scholars and sports fans. Restaurants serve home cooking to world cuisine. Accommodations include hotels, B&Bs and resorts.
