7 Places In Indiana That’ll Make You Wish You Lived Underground

There’s plenty of beauty across the Hoosier state, but even more to explore underneath the surface. If you’ve never checked out some of Indiana’s coolest caves, tunnels, or underground hidden places, then check out this list of 7 places that will make you wish you lived underground.

4. The Lost River – Orangeville

The Lost River is a river that seemingly disappears for 23 miles and then pops back up in Orangeville. However, the river doesn’t really disappear – it just goes underground, which is really awesome. This river has been dubbed a National Natural Landmark for two different reasons: 1) the way the river sinks into the limestone and seemingly disappears for miles is remarkable and 2) the underground river system is distinctly unique.

Find it at 38°37′52″N 86°33′26″W (there’s no exact address – but these coordinates will get you to the rise).
