2020 May Featured Destination of the Month: Visit Indiana
Friday, May 01, 2020 12:49 PM

Many know Indiana residents as basketball fanatics, and they do love their hoops! In fact, sports of all kinds reign supreme, so Indiana is a great place to visit for professional, collegiate, high school or recreational sports. Indiana is the 15th most populous state in the nation. The terrain varies greatly from the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan to the rolling hills in southern Indiana and the lush farmland in between. Between those borders lie areas both urban and rural, with plenty to do from amusement parks and hiking to wine trails and nightlife.
