Indiana Road Trip



An Indiana road trip will offer lots of great opportunities for you to have an amazing adventure in a low-key Midwestern setting.  There are lots of great sports teams and outdoor adventures waiting for you on almost every turn.

Downtown City Adventure

Fort Wayne is an ideal Midwestern town that you can visit on a tight budget.  There are plenty of restaurants  and shops to explore but you will have a difficult time filling up an entire week's worth of activities.  It's an ideal destination for a spontaneous weekend adventure.  You may want to plan your trip around events that are going on at the Allen County Fairgrounds.

Indianapolis is the largest city in Indiana and a great spot for you to get out and watch a professional football or basketball game.  You can easily get a spectacular hotel deal in this city and it is very highly recommended.  Here are some great ideas that you can do for your amazing Indiana road trip:
