What kind of Indiana road trips can I take?

In a word? Lots! Indiana is an older state with tons of intriguing history, remarkably beautiful scenery, strange and unusual attractions, and so much more. No matter what kind of road trip you’re thinking about, Indiana probably has you covered. Even if you’re not feeling nature or history-themed road trip adventures, there’s always awesome alternative options like the Indiana Donut Trail road trip, any number of road trips to admire abandoned and decaying buildings or ghost towns, and so, so, so much more! Interested in more ideas? Check out this list for some inspiration. 

What are some of the most beautiful Indiana waterfalls?

The Hoosier State is home to more than 20 waterfalls. Some of them are seasonal, and some exist year-round. Each of them is beautiful in its own special way, but some do tend to stick out above the rest as particularly breathtaking. Our favorites include both Little Clifty and Big Clifty Falls, which are both within the same park and are easily accessible. Cataract Falls is incredibly photogenic and is, understandably, a mecca-of-sorts for local photographers. Muscatatuck Falls feeds into a gorgeous little pool, and you can’t miss any of the amazing waterfalls at McCormick Creek State Park, either!

Where are some beautiful places in Indiana to take a drive? 

We are quite fortunate to live in a state so full of natural beauty, and a lot of that natural beauty comes with plenty of roads to explore it with. Some of our favorite scenic drives in Indiana include Salt Creek Lick Road, which will take you through scenic and interesting towns, ghost towns, and, of course, beautiful Indiana country. The Lincoln Highway is known for its stunning views, and it goes right through Indiana. In fact, most of our historic roadways are notable for their scenic views or their intriguing landmarks.
