‘Indiana Road Trips’ By Jamie Ward

I was born and raised in Indiana, the Hoosier state! I’ve grown to love this home state of mine, everything from the cornfields to the State Capitol, and everything in between. Indiana is full of beauty, from our ample state parks, hiking, and nature to our bustling college towns and flavorful metropolitan areas.

Whether you are on the hunt for waterfalls, tenderloins, sugar cream pie, fossils, caves, or even murals, you can find it in Indiana. The highways and byways of this state lead to treasures and trails full of adventure and exploring! With plenty of good eats and locals favorites along the way.

Perhaps the best incentive to road tripping through Indiana is the Hoosier Hospitality from local business owners. Ready to eat a tenderloin bigger than your face? How about stomping through some creeks to find fossils? Maybe tour a historical figure’s birthplace? Or explore caves and caverns? An Indiana road trip brings these, and much more.

We’ll explore the Historical National Road, American’s first and most important highway! I’ll introduce you to small towns with big experiences and friendly communities. Up in northern Indiana, we’ll sink our toes into Lake Michigan and explore Amish country. And of course, no road trip in Indiana is complete without venturing through historic southern Indiana!
