Posted by: Abigail Campbell  | Friday, June 15, 2018

Summer is a great time for exploring all that Indiana has to offer. Instead of looking outside of the state for your weekend getaways, be sure to check out the numerous attractions for all ages right in our own backyard. Utilizing VisitIndiana.com is a convenient way to explore popular destinations while staying up-to-date with events and festivals.

There are plenty of fairs and attractions to attend this summer, both close to home and across the state. Taking place on June 30 in Bedford, the Limestone Heritage Festival offers entertainment, local food vendors, a parade and fireworks. Annie, the musical, will be playing now through July 14 at Beef and Boards Dinner Theater in Indianapolis, and Portage will host a Cruise Night with classic cars and food every Tuesday through September.

Locally, our towns and sites have a lot to offer. Voted on by travelers, some of the most popular destinations in the state are located in our area. One of the top-10 locations for waterfalls in Indiana, Spring Mill State Park in Mitchell, hosts traditional park activities, a pioneer village, beautiful rapids and waterfalls. Porky’s BBQ in Paoli was named one of the best places to get BBQ in Indiana, and persimmon pudding from the Mitchell Persimmon Festival was named one of the best signature food items in the state. This can be enjoyed during the festival in the last week of September.

Discounts and coupons for attractions can also be found at VisitIndiana.com. The 2018 travel and festival guides can be downloaded from the website as well as other recreational guides like golf and covered bridges.

You don’t have to travel far to find opportunities for excitement and fun. Indiana is home to some of the best historic sites, state parks and entertainment. When thinking about your next getaway, use VisitIndiana.com to explore and experience everything our community and state offers.
