July 12, 2021

What are the most scenic drives in Indiana? 

Lovers of scenic roads have reason to celebrate, because there just so happens to be lots of beautiful drives you can take all over the state. Some of our favorites include Salt Lick Creek Road, which is a stunning 18-mile scenic drive from Nineveh to Gnaw Bone. Indiana SR-450 is an incredible stretch of road that will take you alongside the beautiful White River. The Lincoln Highway is one of the most incredibly gorgeous and popular scenic routes in the country, and it extends for an impressive 188 miles!  

Where are some beautiful places in Indiana? 

Indiana has plenty of little slices of paradise if you know where to look! For example, we have so many stunningly beautiful state parks that it might be hard to know where to start. Visit Indiana Dunes State Park for some incredible landscape you won’t find anywhere else in the state. For waterfall lovers, we recommend McCormick’s Creek State Park, or the amazing Turkey Run State Park. Brown County is frequently called the most beautiful county in Indiana for plenty of reasons – you should go check it out! We’ve also got geologically interesting places, too, like the strange Jug Rock, or the amazing Falls of the Ohio State Park, where you might just find some fossils.

Which Indiana country roads are the best?  

If there’s anything about the Hoosier State we love, it’s that every country road is the best kind. Pick a back road and drive; you’ll find yourself inside of endless corn fields and beneath breathtaking blue skies. Or perhaps you’ll end up out on the dunes, an incredibly unique landscape unlike anywhere else in the state. The Ohio River Scenic Byway is another beautiful backroad you’ve got to take at least once. Seriously – pick a road and drive it.
