Indiana is the heart of the Midwest, the Crossroads of America. From South Bend up north, to Evansville down south, the landscape is varied and the people are hospitable. The terrain varies greatly from the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan and the Indiana Dunes to the rolling hills in southern Indiana and the lush farmland in between. Between those borders lie areas both urban and rural, with plenty to do from amusement parks and hiking to wine trails and nightlife. Other tourists have had the opportunity to vote and Fort Wayne won the top two spots for “Best Summer Gotta-Dos with the Children’s Zoo and the TinCaps Baseball at Parkview Field. Another winning destination for kids of all ages is the World’s Largest Children’s Museum with a brand new 7.5 acre indoor and outdoor Sports Legends Experience.
But what about the winter months? If you’re looking for family travel, you’ll love the museums, state parks and sports. Planning a girlfriend getaway? Check out the unique shopping venues, from popular outlet malls with designer clothing to local artisan and antique shops. If romance is in the air, see what’s playing at a theater, meander an Indiana wine trail, hit the slopes or try your luck at a casino.
