Indiana is a delightful state, and there are so many cute towns in Indiana that it’s almost impossible to list them all. It seems like everywhere you go, you’ll find beauty and wonder, and the small towns really showcase this magic for all to see. Some of our favorite cute small towns in Indiana include hidden gems like Carmel, Beverly Shores, and Michigan City, all of which are Lake Michigan towns so beautiful you’ll forget you’re in the Midwest. We also love tiny towns like Patriot, New Harmony, Shipshewana, and Goshen. As for what it is that draws us to places like these, we don’t know – but we’re certainly not complaining, either.  

What is the best small town in Indiana?  

Well, obviously, “best” is a subjective qualifier, but the list of adorable small towns in Indiana does continue long after the above-mentioned places are counted. Other adorable small towns in Indiana that could be called the “best” include crown jewels like French Lick, which is a stunning resort paradise you’ll never forget, Vincennes, which is excellent for fans of local history, and Nashville, which is in very close proximity to Brown County State Park and is known for being outrageously beautiful. No matter what you look for in a small town, you’re sure to find the perfect place somewhere in the Hoosier State.
