Enchanting Weekend Getaways & Road Trip Ideas in Eastern Indiana
Even adults need a spring break! Eastern Indiana is the perfect escape for you this spring.
(I-Newswire) April 19, 2010 - The scent of lilacs in the breeze, a kite festival in Historic Farmland, a Wild West train ride to the canal town of Metamora, the Butterflies & Fairies exhibit at the Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Gardens, live horse racing at Hoosier Park, golf at Walnut Creek Golf Course (the clubhouse was a stop along the Underground Railroad), a stroll through Charley Creek Gardens, as well as baseball, farmers’ markets, gallery walks, wine tasting, outdoor concerts and so much more…these are just a few of the things you’ll miss if you miss spring in Eastern Indiana!
Listen to the sounds of nature near Gene Stratton Porter’s home in celebration of the 100th anniversary of MUSIC OF THE WILD. There are hundreds of acres of wetlands as well as a 106-acre bird sanctuary in the Limberlost Territories.
If the famous Limberlost Swamp captures your imagination, there are plenty of other things you won’t want to miss here either. Legends abound in Eastern Indiana!
The apple blossoms floating down on you as you bike the American Discovery Trail or canoe one of the beautiful rivers might come from a tree descended from one planted by Johnny Appleseed. His final resting place is in Eastern Indiana.
Visit Wilbur Wright's birthplace to see a full-sized replica of the first flyer and other inspiring exhibits.
James Dean and Cole Porter are two other legendary figures from Eastern Indiana. Hoosier Hoagy Carmichael completed and recorded one of the most popular songs of all-time, “Stardust,” in the Eastern Indiana town of Richmond for Gennett Records. The Gennett Records Walk of Fame on the site of the former studio lists other stars who recorded there including Louis Armstrong, Gene Autry, Artie Shaw and many others.
It’s impossible to list everything here, so for more ideas go to www.visiteasternindiana.org and become a friend/fan of Eastern Indiana on Facebook.
