What are the best small towns in Indiana?  

Indiana is a state that’s just right: not too big, and not too small. It’s full of small towns, in fact, there are more small towns than large cities in the entire Midwest, and Indiana is no exception. There are some towns that seem to come up repeatedly in lists about the best of the best, though, and those towns include Shipshewana, where you’ll get a close-up look at Amish life (and their incredible bakeries), and Vincennes, which is a favorite among history buffs. Beverly Shores is another great one, as it was the first-ever Dark Sky City in Indiana. What’s a Dark-Sky City you ask? Check out this article about Beverly Shores to find out more!  

Which charming small towns in Indiana should I add to my bucket list? 

In three words? All of them! But seriously, there are some we really, really, love, and we’re happy to share them with you. Angola is quite wonderful and might just be one of the coolest small towns in the whole Midwest – not just Indiana! Madison is a beautiful town built alongside the Ohio River, and the water views are to die for. Brown County is often called the most beautiful county in Indiana, and the town of Nashville is nestled right in said county.
