Why this One Little Town is Indiana’s Best Kept Secret

Indiana is full of small towns that offer a lot of charm, history, and local attractions. Sitting towards the top of that list is Marengo, Indiana, a town with roughly 800 residents and under 500 acres of land. While this small town may not seem like much at first, it’s actually home to one of the state’s largest tourist attractions.

Marengo is a tiny town in southern Indiana most famous for the natural attraction, Marengo Cave. This U.S. National Natural Landmark draws in thousands of tourists each year and offers plenty to see and do for visitors.
