The Best Places to Vacation in Indiana

If you've never considered a vacation in Indiana, you may want to think again. There's so much to do and see in the Hoosier State! Venture south to Santa Claus, America's Christmas Hometown, and stay at Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph, located next to Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, America's very first theme park and one of the largest water parks in North America. 

Ready for the holidays? Christmas lovers can also visit the Santa Claus Museum, the Santa Claus Post Office, Santa's Stables, Santa's Candy Castle, and the Santa Claus Christmas store. 

Located just 5 miles way from Sun Outdoors Lake Rudolph is the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and Living Historical Farm on the site where Abraham Lincoln lived 14 of his formative years on the Indiana frontier.

Head north to Indianapolis, home to the Indianapolis 500. Explore museums, enjoy an air show, or enroll in a racing school. If you're an RV enthusiast, take a trip to Elkhart and the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum and learn about the history of recreational vehicles and manufactured housing. At the top of the state, venture to the southern shores of Lake Michigan and enjoy the sandy beaches, trails, and jack pine forests of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
