We wanted to build you an Ultimate Indiana Waterfalls Road Trip that covered all of the most beautiful waterfalls in the state…but there are just too many to choose from!

We couldn’t bear to leave out any of our favorites (or send you on a single 22-hour drive), so we decided to split the list and give you TWO epic Waterfall Road Trips to take to make sure you see the best of both the Northern AND Southern regions of the Hoosier State!

PART 1 of our Ultimate Waterfalls Adventure features six of our favorite ‘falls in the Northern half of the state, but also check out PART 2 to see our Southern Indiana Waterfalls!

We started (and ended) our trip in Indy, but you can jump in anywhere along this Indiana waterfalls road trip! To make this trip as easy as possible, we’ve built a ready-to-go Road Map for you through Google Maps! Let’s get this waterfall road trip in northern Indiana started.

 

The Southern region gets most of the attention when it comes to waterfalls, but Northern Indiana has plenty of fantastic falls to show off as well. There are many more that we could have listed here, but in an effort to keep this Road Trip to a “doable” distance, we could only include so many.

Are you ready to take one of the best scenic drives in Indiana to see some of the best waterfalls? Let’s start this adventure on an Indiana waterfalls road trip! Don’t forget the snacks (and an excellent road trip playlist)!

What are the best road trips in Indiana?

Road trips are a great way to satisfy your sense of adventure and there are numerous places to go within the state of Indiana, and creating a road trip theme is a way to narrow down the choices. For example, you can take a lighthouse road trip to see all the lighthouses along Lake Michigan. Or, how about a castle-themed road trip to discover some beautiful architecture?
