Hoosier Vacation Destinations


Summer has almost begun, and many Hoosiers are unaware of all the interesting places to visit in our great state of Indiana. From the sandy shores of the Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan, to the banks of the Ohio River in Madison – Indiana has a multitude of exciting vacation destinations that are only a few hours away!

Here are some of our favorite places to visit in Indiana:

  • Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore – Sand and sun in Indiana?  Who needs to travel to one of the coasts when there is a beach right here in Indiana?  Located in Northern Indiana, the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore sits at the southern end of Lake Michigan.  Take a day trip or stay an entire summer – there are plenty of public beaches, hotel accommodations and attractions for the whole family.


  • Turkey Run/Shades State Park – Just minutes away from one another, Turkey Run and Shades are two of our favorite state parks. There are plenty of trails for hiking, canoeing, fishing and other nature activities to satisfy any outdoors enthusiast.

  • Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari – No summer would be complete without a trip to Holiday World located in Santa Clause, Indiana.  Boasting the #1 Roller Coaster in America, an amazing water park and free soft drinks – who wouldn’t want to spend a day at Holiday World?
