Visit the home of one of the World's best known Schools of Music, with Opera, Symphony, Jazz, and more. Want to stay? MANY motels and hotels and many restaurants. AND the geography is scenic with many hills and woods. One of the country's most beautiful University campuses!
Stoney Creek is located just east of Noblesville on St. Rd. 38 and is a great place in the fall and winter. They have horse drawn sleigh rides in the winter (If there is snow) and a great pumpkin patch and festival in Oct.
here is a map to help you find Bloomington. Bloomington is NOT like much of Indiana. It is very hilly and wooded!
