This Spring, Millions Of Cicadas Are Set To Emerge In Indiana After 17 Years Underground

Well, folks, it’s that time of year – well, that time of the century – again. It’s going to be one of thoseĀ years, where we’re serenaded with the sounds of (literally) billions of cicadas. Some folks find the sounds insufferable, but others seem to find a certain comfort in the constant buzzing of the little fellas. One thing is for sure: Spring 2021 is going to be chock full of them!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Intriguingly, there is also a species of cicadas that emerge every 13 years. It’s an immensely rare treat to be alive for years during which both the 13 and 17-year varieties emerge; the next time this serendipitous event occurs, it’ll be the year 2115. For some reason, we have doubts that we’ll be able to catch that one.
