It’s not all farmland in Indiana. But if you’re searching for that “Midwest farmer’s daughter” the Beach Boys sang about, there’s probably no better place to find her than in Indiana. From overhead, Indiana looks like a great patchwork quilt of green, but down on the ground, there’s more than just rows of crops and barns. Up north, the Great Lakes meet shores of sweeping sand dunes, while the hills of the south are dotted with caves to explore and rivers to traverse. Football fans pilgrimage to Notre Dame’s South Bend, while history buffs heads to the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial. Big-city Indianapolis is tucked right into the heart of it all; here you’ll find big sights like the Indiana War Memorial, and some of the state’s best shopping, dining and nightlife. But Indiana’s smaller cities shouldn’t be overlooked either; Columbus boasts buildings by big-name architects, while the ethnic eateries and offbeat music scene of Bloomington deserve a look. And, holding it all together, is a fabric of farmland as American as apple pie, as Midwestern as overalls, and as charming as it gets.
