Indiana: Winemaking in Hoosier Country

Indiana has long been known as the "Hoosier State, a nickname whose origins are uncertain. It is also called the Land of the Indians, a designation that lives on in the official state name. With access to the Great Lakes and miles of cornfields, Indiana appears to some to be a quintessential mid-Western state, but tourists staying in Indiana vacation rentals will be quick to realize that the state has a lot more to offer than the kinds of images that tend to dominate postcards.

Indiana, for example, is home to a thriving domestic winemaking industry. The Oliver Winery outside Bloomington not only makes and sells wines, but also offers tours of the facility, some of them conducted by family members who have been involved in the winemaking process as long as the family has been in the business.

While visiting wineries may not be an activity that thrills young children, the large city of Indianapolis features a large number of tourist amenities that are appropriate for the entire family. These include the Caribbean Cove Water Park, which has more than 50,000 square feet of facilities, and the Indianapolis Zoo, which includes not just the common land animals one might expect, but also sharks and dolphins, making it a zoo and major aquarium rolled into one. The Children's Museum of Indianapolis provides children and adults with hands-on learning opportunities on topics as diverse as dinosaurs and outer space.

Try Bass Lake for your families next vacation!

Posted by Craig Scachitti on Tuesday, October 16, 2007
 
"Bass Lake is a natural lake that stands on top of a hill. Nearly unique among Indiana lakes, its drainage basin slopes away-not toward-the water and how it remains liquid is, at first thought, something of a mystery. Starke County Historical Society As Indiana's fourth largest natural body of water (approximately 1,400 acres) which boasts exceptional fishing and water sports. Bass Lake is the only Indiana lake that has provided reasonably good fishing for walleyed pike over a long period of years and one of the few in the state in which white bass are numerous enough to afford regular fishing. Large and small mouth bass, crappies, bluegills and perch are other important game fish. The South end of the lake is shallow, ideal for water skiers and has a slalom course owned by the OPPO Ski Club. A great place for the family summer vacation!
