You may find this surprising, but there's a lot to see and do in Indiana. Indianapolis is home to auto racing. It is known for the older Indianapolis 500?, and lesser known for the newer (ever-growing in popularity) Brickyard 400?. Indy is also the capital city and has all the conveniences you'd expect from the largest city in the state. World-class malls, food, and entertainment can all be found here, as well as an IMAX theater.
Fort Wayne is the second largest city. It's well-known for its many churches and restaurants. You can always find a good place to eat - although you may have to wait for a table. There's an international airport that makes traveling easy and convenient.
South Bend is home to the Notre Dame Irish?.
Bloomington is home to one of the hottest campuses in the country...IU. With many NCAA championships in basketball, soccer and swimming, and internationally-known programs, like the Kelly School of Business and the IU School of Music, Bloomington has much to offer.
Wonderful ethnic restaurants line 4th Street, and just a few blocks from campus, you can find entertainment and recreation such as opera, music recitals, IU Broadway Theatre productions, Big Ten Basketball, the Lake Monroe Reservoir, and Brown County State Park.
Little Nashville Indiana, the historic artists' colony, is a wonderful getaway for millions of tourists each year. One of Mother Nature's amazing achievements, the hazy blue "hills and hollers" of Brown County Indiana are very much like the Smoky Mountains...absolutely amazing vistas that go on forever. Hiking, mountain biking, camping, fishing, and boating are all available here.
You will also find many art galleries, artists and crafters working in shops and home studios, bluegrass musicfests, country music stars, live theater, line dance barn, puppet shows, golf, putt-putt golf, carriage rides, pony rides, trail rides, horseman campgrounds, and more. And, let's not forget about the food...fried biscuits and apple butter...to die for!
