Reconnect With Your Adventurous Side

Scenic vistas, entertainment, and outdoor thrills, oh my!

Need to really get away? You're in luck! There's no better place to recenter than the great outdoors. Plan a hike, camping adventure, or scenic journey through all that Southern Indiana has to offer. For outdoor thrill-chasers, catch a race at the speedway or ride rollercoasters at a nearby theme park.
