Favorite thing: My homeland. So I'm aloud to say it's not the most exciting of places to visit. With two days I imagine you could get a decent sense of the land. Amish country around Nappanee, Shipshewana and Middlebury make for a very interesting and peaceful excursion. The Notre Dame campus is a pilgrimage for some. The more adventurous and sociologically inclined will find the desolate downtowns of Gary, South Bend, Richmond and Fort Wayne disturbing and fascinating. The Indiana Dunes are the ecological, scenic can't miss.
Favorite thing: Easily the more scenic section of the state. Limestone cliffs, winding roads, forests, quaint towns and the Ohio River valley create a landscape in stark contrast to the level farmland of northern Indiana. Defintely worth a couple of days if you have the time. Highlights include the architecturally innovative city of Columbus, the first capital Corydon, the Hoosier National Forest, Brown County State Park (packed in the fall), the covered bridges around Rockville, the well preserved riverboat town of Madison, the IU campus in Bloomington and historic Vincennes.
Lincoln State Park
Favorite thing: Lincoln State Park and the Lincoln Boyhood Memorial are located near each other in southern Indiana in Lincoln City,In. The State Park is a great place to camp, hike,swim,or just picnic.The memorial has a living farm and a replica of the kind of cabin the Lincoln family lived in.They cook and farm like farming was done in the early 1800's.The cabin is located near the site of the original Lincoln cabinThe Living Historical Farm is open every day from mid-April through September;in October it is only open on weekends; from November through mid -April the buildings are closed and not staffed. however you can still visit the farm and browse the area
Fondest memory: The foliage in the fall.I have not been able to capture how beatiful it is on film.My best memory would be camping at lincoln with my wife and kids.Related to:
CROSSROADS OF AMERICA
Favorite thing: On Dec.11,1816,Indiana became a state in the infant United States.It started out with 15 counties and by mid century there were 92 counties in Indiana.The first state capitol was at Corydon.This is where the first constitution that became the law of the state was adopted.It began the process of creating the local governments and from here Indiana began to develope into the 'crossroads of America'.
Fondest memory: it is hard to pinpoint one favorite memory of Indiana.From my boyhood days of romping through the woods all day to spending time with my grandkids on the holidays.
I am not away from Indiana enough to miss anything.Related to:

John195123's General Tip
Fondest memory: I can't say much about Indiana, but one really cool trip I took with my dad and a couple of his coworkers to a farm owned by one of them We shot guns, bows, but mainly we rode 4-wheelers around. That was cool. The trails were all muddy and wet, and for much of the time, we rode up creeks. I was surprised at how well my own ATV handled the terrain. I'd like to think it was the driver. Before that, I hadn't had the chance to really test it out, but here I did. It worked great until a point where I was in a two-foot deep mudhole at the base of a ten-foot dip. My machine didn't ride where I wanted it to, and it sorta, kids, flipped on me. I was all wet and muddy, not to mention bloody... but oh, it was fun. We managed, somehow, to push and pull it out of this hole, a hole I had been through without incident earlier that day, and I pushed it part of the way back while the others rode back to get the bigger ATV to tow me. Ah, it was fun. We shot some trap after that. 18 inch barrel, light shot, 2 3/4 loads... beat the long barrels, of course. Fun!

Fondest memory: Another fond memory of Indiana is at another friend's farm. We rode up with our ATV and motorbike, they brought theirs. Guns aplenty... I took out one of their ATVs which was bigger and had four wheel drive, on one of the many trails on their land. It was all fun and good until I began up a steep, steep hill. I made it within sight of the top, then figured I was about to flip, for some stupid reason. It was fall, and the slippery leaves covered the ground. I turned the ATV to the left, and managed to jump off. Fortunately, it decided not to follow me, and roll over itself, on top of me. It took some work, but I soon got it facing downhill and got back on, enjoying other shorter hills. Part of the problem with this one was that it was so long. But still, fun.
Favorite thing: Most of Indiana was inhabited by Indians of several different tribes. Along river banks where they had lived you can still find artifacts such as arrowheads. Evansville and Vincennes are rich in historical sites of this era .Indiana Indians played a large role in the early developement of the European expansion into the Northwest Territory.Theirs is a very colorful and exciting history,especially when they interact with the white man.

Favorite thing: Go to Indianapolis! Rapidly becoming one of the greatest cities in the nation. Take a walk on the canal, visit the Indianapolis Museum of Art, see Dillinger's grave at Crown Hill cemetery, take a downtown walking tour of the city's several memorials, and don't forget the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!
Fondest memory: I have countless fond memories of Indiana given that I have been lived here for about 30 years. When I'm away I miss Big Red soda.

Favorite thing: Visit the RCA Dome to see the Colts play or visit Monument Circle!
Fondest memory: My fondest memory was when I went up there in the winter time just after Christmas and when I walked out of the airport there was 3 inches of snow on the ground! I saw snow for the first time in my life being that I live in hot Florida.
