With beaches, boating, and salmon fishing in Michigan City and Gary bordering Lake Michigan, there is more to Indiana than might appear at first glance. The agricultural heartland even has cross country skiing and snowmobiling to go with the Cornball Express. Southwest Indiana near Evansville is renowned for the well-preserved Native American Angel Mounds State Historic Site. The largest city and state capital is famous worldwide for its Indianapolis 500 race. Even locals living in the suburbs often overlook the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Eiteljorg Museum, NCAA Hall of Champions, the old Union Station museum cluster, and downtown Canal Walk, to name but a few landmarks. South Bend is synonymous with the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. Indiana even has its own Nashville, complete with money-saving vacation rentals.
Forested Nashville’s art colony fame dates to the early 1900s when Impressionist Theodore Clement Steele overwintered in The House of the Singing Winds. It is now the T.C. Steele State Historic Site. A secluded Nashville log cabin in Brown County is the perfect vacation rental for golf and exploring Bloomington. View paintings and sculpture at the I.M. Pei-designed Indiana University Museum of Art. Attend an IU sports event or an opera, ballet, concert, or theater performance. Treat the family to The Little Nashville Opry or The Bill Monroe Bluegrass Park. For healing mineral springs, head south to Orange County, Indiana’s spa resort center, for a money-saving French Licks vacation rental.
Enjoy The Agricultural Heartland
Enjoy golf, fishing, boating, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, and ice skating in the nation’s agricultural heartland. Monticello and Rensselaer are west of Logansport and north of Lafayette. Take the family on the Cornball Express and Hoosier Hurricane at the Indiana Beach Amusement Resort in Monticello. Play boardwalk carnival games, or let the kids loose on the go-carts. Pile the family into their vehicles for an old-fashioned movie experience at Monticello’s Lake Shore Drive-In. Indulge in a weekend dinner boat cruise to hot band sounds as the Madam Carroll plies Lake Freeman.
Lake Michigan Beaches
Be within an hour of Chicago, and enjoy the sand dunes and beaches of Lake Michigan from your money-saving Gary vacation rental. A Michigan City vacation rental home puts your family near the shopping and restaurants of New Buffalo, Michigan. Plus Michigan City has salmon fishing, several theatre groups, the Great Lakes Museum of Military History, the Old Lighthouse Museum, the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, and the Rag Tops Automobile Museum among its many attractions. An Angola lakefront vacation home with a private dock is the perfect way to enjoy Lake James.
