Growing up in Indiana has been an amazing journey and I will never leave. This isn’t the case for many. People leave everyday due to jobs opportunities, college, military and so on. We know one thing is for sure: we love OUR state! Here is my list of things people will definitely miss when they leave Indiana.
1. Comfort Stew
The most traditional stew in Indiana has a really hearty beef base. Cold nights like these require some Indiana stew. Remember: make a bunch because it's always better the second day.
Straight from Tim McGraw, "Oh I miss yeah a little dirt on the road, I miss corn growin' in a row. I miss being somebody everybody knows, there everybody knows everybody."
3. Windmill Farms
Everyone always loves seeing the windmill farms and their beautiful simplicity.
4. Craft Breweries
Craft breweries seem to be making headway in Indiana lately. With this said, others would miss a good craft beer!
5. Amazing Smiles
We are known for our outgoing personalities and amazing smiles. I would miss the hospitality of Indiana.
6. Small City Drive-Ins
7. Monument Circle Lights
Who wouldn't miss Monument Circle all shiny and bright?
8. Indiana Saves You Money
Zillow reports that the home value median is at $110,000 for our state. This is 2/3 less than most states. WOW!
9. Country to City in 15 Minutes
Sometimes it takes 15 minutes to go 15 miles. This is a WIN!
10. Your Favorite Restaurants Remembering Your Order
“I like cooking food, and I like serving food, but I don’t like having to make a lot of fuss about it,”
~ Nels (owner and operator)
They know my order every time.
11. Family Fishing Trips
We have plenty of gorgeous lakes for relaxing and fishing. I think spending quality family time would be a devastating loss to many.
What would you miss? What do you love about Indiana? I really do love reading your comments!
