Road TripThis list encompasses something for everyone with its appealing travel destinations located throughout the Hoosier State.

  • I think dinner at the Schnitzelbank in Jasper, preceded by a round of golf at Sultan's Run is a very good day in Indiana. - Kevin, Sales        

  • So far my favorite is Nashville/Brown County. I love the mix of outdoor activities like ziplining with the quaint shops downtown. - Jennifer, Marketing

  • East to west, anywhere within five miles of the Ohio. - Dave, Sales

  • Boating on Patoka Lake then hiking in Newton-Stewart SRA. In the fall, it is hard to beat hiking the rugged trails in Turkey Run. - Kevin, Claims

  • The Madison area along the Ohio River. Great antique shops and Clifty Falls State Park is awesome! - Sandy, Claims

  • French Lick and West Baden. Two grand historic hotels, golf, beautiful scenery, winery, and even a casino. - Kim, President and CEO

  • This state has some great state parks. Ivanhoes in Upland with their 200 flavors of shakes and sundaes is a must. Lastly, at the risk of sounding like Sheldon, the train museum in Elkhart is a unique place to visit. - Chad, Research & Development

  • I like the northeast Indiana lake country. Variant sized lakes created by the glaciers that once covered the area. I have boated on quite a number of them. Camping at Pokagon State Park is fun as well. - Scott, Sales

  • Shipshewana is a fun destination. The auctions held every Tuesday are amazing if you are into antiques. - Lisa, Marketing

  • I have not been to a state park or recreation area in Indiana I did not like. Shades State Park is really a nice place to go same terrain as Turkey Run but less people so you can get the out in the wilderness away from it all feel. Also a little park that I thought was interesting was Fall Creek Gorge located on Potholes Rd. (very appropriately named) by Attica. Not a big place but interesting just the same good for a day trip if you’re just going out to visit some of the least known parks and wildlife refuges. - Harry, Information Technology

  • Huber Orchard and Winery in Borden is my favorite place. They have a wonderful restaurant (they grow a lot of the food they prepare onsite.)  They have a petting zoo for the kids and a farmers market. - Kelly, Customer Communication

  • Nicky Blain's downtown Indy during the Moto GP/Motorcycles on Meridian! Great bikes, great people, and a blondie cigar. - Matt, Real Estate

  • Story is a great destination for any motorcycle riders. - Craig, Information Technology

  • Washington Park and beach in Michigan City. It is a nice beach right on Lake Michigan with a big playground, splash pad, and little zoo. - Jenifer, Information Technology

  • Summer would not be complete without a trip to Holiday World! – Katie, Claims            

  • Lake Patoka on any boat that has a cooler. – Tom, Claims
