  • To truly understand Indiana,...

    by lelandV Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: To truly understand Indiana, you need to attend a high school basketball game in a rural community.

    Fondest memory: I miss the fog that lingers in the morning & especially miss the vividness of the leaf colors in the autumn.

    Fondest memory: Indiana is a leading manufacturing state and a major agricultural producer. The latest U.S. Census Bureau estimate places Indiana's population at 5,942,901, which makes Indiana the nation's 14th largest state. Yet, there are still many lakes!

    Favorite thing: ...(hee, hee) I guess you 'must' read this. State Bird = Cardinal This is from a Fourth Grade class in Indiana -- I hope they got their facts right: Indiana covers 36,185 square miles in area, including 253 square miles of water. The length of Indiana is 275 miles. The breadth is 145 miles. This ranks us 38th in the United States in size.

    The highest altitude in Indiana is 1257 feet in Wayne County. The lowest altitude is 320 feet in Posey County.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: When visiting Indiana, you must visit Brown County. In the Fall the trees are just beautiful. So many colors. They have a state park, where you can hike, camp, etc. We have a wonderful childrens zoo in Ft.Wayne. It is said to be one of the best ones around.

    Fondest memory: I think my fondest memory of Indiana is the colors of the seasons. I think that I would miss the seasons. Snow at Christmas, colors of the trees in the fall. Spring flowers in the spring, and green leaves in the summer.

    Go visit Lincoln Boyhood State...

    by K.C. Updated Aug 24, 2002

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go visit Lincoln Boyhood State Park, it's absolutely beautiful! If you love nature and lakes, you will love this place!

    Fondest memory: The best thing about Indiana is the breeze. The temperature is always appropriate and relazing. Most the places in Southern Indiana are very beautiful and extremely relaxing. What could be better than sitting under a tree having a picnic with a cool spring breeze blowing through your hair? It is the best, absolutely.

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Go and see the bridges area which is southeast of Indianapolis. I usually avoid the fall festival but if you check the home page you can find festivals throughout the year which are fun and the bridges are always there!

    Fondest memory: Our first trip to the markets in Mansfiled and the live nativity in Rockville.

  • Rsing Sun, Indiana is the home...

    by nallen Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: Rsing Sun, Indiana is the home of the Hyatt Grand Victoria Casino and Resort on the Ohio River. Eight miles up stream Lawrenceburg, Indiana is located the worlds largest river boat casino complex the Argosy Casino & Hotel and 13 miles down river is the newest casino and resort in Florence, Indiana the Belltera Casino and Resort. Championship class golf courses, fine dining and superb accomodations as well as quaint bed & breakfast's are readily available. Many summer festivals in the area and one of the best car shows in Rising Sun in summer. This is a beautiful region with lots of art & antique shopping easily located in each town.

    Fondest memory: I think I witnessed a F0 (Fujita Scale rank) tornado while driving on I-65. I saw a pile a soil from a field spinning in the air, and coming across the highway, and continuing its travel. The weather was fine and clear, but extremely windy.

  • This is College Basketball...

    by ChiBronco Written Aug 24, 2002

    Favorite thing: This is College Basketball Heaven and the Final Four
    Tournament should be held in Indianapolis every year.
    Indiana is the Only state I know that can attract
    50,000 people to a High school Basketball game.Take
    in a Purdue,Notre Dame or Indiana sporting event of
    any kind and feel the experience.

    Fondest memory: Since Indiana is my Eastern neighbor,I have dealt
    with the State just as much as my own.I have always
    liked the Friendliness of the people there and it is very
    noticeable as soon as you get far enough away from
    the Chicago area.Indiana is very laid back and they
    like it that way.

    Fondest memory: collecting ragweed samples
