The quintessential college town boasts four colleges, a summertime collegiate baseball team, six golf courses, and the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center's Lavern Gibson Championship Cross Country Course. With an equally vibrant art and music culture, you'll find plenty of fun, unique activities to pursue.
There are a diverse mix of historical and cultural offerings to engage your every whim in Terre Haute. The Track & Field and Cross Country Museum celebrates over 100 years of Indiana athletes. Downtown's "triangle" museum complex -- the Children's Museum, the Clabber Girl Museum, and the Vigo County Historical Society Museum -- will enchant your children and engage both your inner baker and pioneer.
Terre Haute vacations are not complete until you've explored its arts and music culture. The Terre Haute Arts Corridor includes the Swope Art Museum, which features nationally recognized American artists, including Andy Warhol. During the Corridor's monthly "First Friday" soiree, you'll delight in a myriad of multimedia art exhibits and musical performances. Several nearby Terre Haute hotels provide a convenient and pleasant resting place for the night.
