When visiting Indiana, you...
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...
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.
Go and see the bridges area...
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.

Favorite thing: Fall is the season to visit, but all year is nice. We have 4 full seasons here to enjoy. Snow, Sun and fires in the fireplace in the winters.
Fondest memory: Fall Festivals, all over Indiana and a great way to experience its culture.
KaljaMaha's General Tip
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...
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.

Favorite thing: check out the weird layout of country backroads...it's easy to get lost when roads stop and then start again a few hundred yards to the right or left (but you never know which way it will be)
Fondest memory: collecting ragweed samples

Favorite thing: The zoo is located at 1200 W. Washington Street in Indianapolis. For information phone:
