Indiana, the heart of good living and fun.
Indiana is a little bit country, a little bit city, and lots of fun. When you drive along the roads where lush green fields and trees stretch for miles, you just feel good. From eating fresh, healthy summer produce to enjoying events held outdoors on those balmy summer nights, there’s an earthy smell that’s so real, so fresh, and so healthy, you’ll wonder how you can leave your vacation.
Home to the famous Indianapolis 500 “Indy” car race, the state considers itself the crossroads of America, which is kind of fitting for the car theme. But in addition to this most famous attraction and event held annually, you’ll find some really unique museums worth checking out. With affordable prices, you can work your way across this Midwest state and learn about this culture and history of the place.
Some of our favorites include a Hair Museum in French Lick, Candles Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute, Ben-Hur Museum in Crawfordsville, Greentown Glass Museum, Hook’s Historic Drug Store and Pharmacy in Indianapolis, The Glass Museum in Dunkirk, Mid-America Wind Museum and World War II Victory Museum in Auburn. There are over 65 interesting museums open to the public ranging from art and history themes to classic cars and college football.
If you want to kick back in a culturally diverse atmosphere, you can stay in Amish Acres in Nappanee, where meals, gifts and entertainment are wholesome and family-fun. Among its people (Hoosiers, the locals call their folks from Indiana) are singer Crystal Gayle, the Wright Brothers, Johnny Appleseed and James Dean.
Wineries, sand dunes, covered bridges and mansions are a few of the offerings you may want to see on a visit to Indiana. Proud of the products that are Made in America, you can visit and purchase farm fresh foods and custom goods such as Action Custom Straps for guitars and cameras, Hoosier Bat Company where baseball bats are made for athletes and Clay City Potter, over 100 years in existence making pottery in the a place called Clay City.
So if eating well, buying American and soaking up history and culture suit you, Indiana would be an excellent place to start living the life you deserve on your next vacation. You can fly into Evansville, Fort Wayne, Gary and the largest airport, Indianapolis International Airport (IND), then rent a car and drive.
