Wouldn’t you like to feel the wind on your face while Indy cars race around the oval track at speeds of 200 mph and more? Maybe you’d like to see the childhood home of the “King of Pop,” Michael Jackson? Or witness the Notre Dame football team play on a fall afternoon? With a stay at any number of hotels in Indiana, all of this is within reach.
There’s no better place to begin your journey than in the capital city of Indianapolis. After settling into your hotel, get out and enjoy the sights. Make your way to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a walk through the Hall of Fame Museum. Marvel at the exhibits dedicated to race cars, including the past Indy 500 winners on display. After you finish acting like a gearhead, take a bike ride around the city’s Cultural Trail, an 8-mile loop that connects downtown’s five cultural districts. It’s a great way to experience the best personalities of Indianapolis.
If you’re feeling landlocked by the metro area, head north to the shores of Lake Michigan in Gary. Spend the day at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore frolicking in the water while the enormous sand dunes rise from the land behind you. On a clear day, you can look across the lake and see the Chicago skyline. Are you ready to play daredevil? Get your hands on a sandboard and fly down the dunes like you would on the ski slopes. And relax at the end of the day by shacking up at one of the better lakeside resorts in Indiana. You can even use Travelocity to bundle your booking at an Indiana resort with one of the cheap flights to the Hoosier State to save hundreds of dollars. Start searching through our wide selection of flights and hotels, and you’ll be exploring Indiana soon.
