Fun Activities for the Family in Indiana (Guest Post)9:47:00 PM
Indiana is a great place to engage in some exhilarating, exhausting activities for the whole family. The Hoosier State, says ifonly.com, has incredible adventures right at your fingertips, from meeting wild animals to exploring hidden caves and much more.
See Turkey Run State Park
This is a nature park in Indiana that is great if you like seeing wonders of the natural world. It is also one of the most adventurous places to visit in the state. Crawl through the steep, deep ravines made of cold sandstone, take a walk along the famous Sugar Creek, or simply go on a walking tour along one of the many hiking and trekking trails in the park. There are eleven of these of different lengths and intensity, from an easy half a mile walk to a grueling three miles. Remember to take a meal along so you can have a picnic with your family while here.
Unwind at Indiana Beach
This beach amusement park is one of the most fun places to go in the state. You can visit with your family and make it a two-day trip to make the most of the experience. Indeed, there are so many things to do here that you might even have to stay an extra day to get through it all. There are tons of campsites nearby, along with multiple promotions at the amusement park to get discounts for your family and for accommodation nearby.
Explore Brown County State Park
If you’re going to this park, you should take a mountain bike along for the ride as this is the best way to enjoy your time here. The state’s mountain biking association has dedicated itself to maintaining safe trails for all bikers without harming the natural resources of the park. You can bike here regardless of how hardcore a cyclist you are. If you simply don’t like cycling, there are plenty of other trails, whether for hiking or riding a horse down.
Visit the Connor Prairie
Spanning over 200 acres of densely wooded land, the prairie consists of five sections you should explore. Each of these has its own place in history. Take a guided tour of the different parts of the prairie before heading over to the fun animal encounter barn with your family to give your children something they can truly enjoy – petting some crazy varieties of animals.
This is one of the last and most awesome activities we love in Indiana. The US government has protected this as a national landmark. When visiting Indiana, you should go here to explore the extensive cave network that was once the scene of gem mines. You can also go on a canoe ride on the water nearby.
If you aren’t the adventurous type, Indiana surely has a lot more to offer you too. However, if you enjoy getting wet and muddy, having your knees skinned on a regular basis, and feeling so tired at the end of the day that you can’t even move, the Hoosier State was made for you!
