“Hoosiers” Is Now The Official Term For Indianans And We Couldn’t Be Happier
To be an “Indianan” is a beautiful thing, as it evokes a sense of state pride that one can only feel if Indiana is home. But as most of us in Indiana know, the name “Hoosier” has always been much preferred. So it is with genuine excitement that we relay the news that the U.S. Government will now begin using this nickname in all of its official documentation.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
