If you thought Indiana was just a bunch of boring old cornfields, think again; the state is packed with tons of things to do and sights to see. Whether you’re headed to urban Indianapolis or enjoying the beauty of the countryside, here’s some of the best Indiana attractions.
Children’s Museum of Indianapolis: Credited as the largest children’s museum in the country, the Indianapolis Children’s Museum offers five stories of fun.
Turkey Run State Park: People come to Turkey Run State Park for the large lodge, extensive hiking trails, hayrides, and year-round events. The inn even has an Olympic-sized pool.
Nappanee: Downtown Nappanee is crawling with local shops and boutiques in historic buildings, while the countryside is covered with family-owned shops. It’s situated right on the edge of Amish Country, giving it that old-fashioned country charm.
Conner Prairie: This interactive “history park” is filled with costumed, historically-accurate interpreters and covers 800 acres of land. Experience a slice of history at this park just north of downtown Fishers.
The Spirit of Jasper: A restored historic passenger train, the Spirit of Jasper takes romantic trips through the countryside and offers various Ride ‘n’ Dine trips year-round.
