Indiana Entertainment and Recreation
At the end of the nineteenth century, Hoosiers found themselves with more free time than ever before. Technological advances in industry allowed increased efficiency in manufacturing and farming while transportation innovations connected farmers and city dwellers, easing travel between work, home, and play. This innovation allowed ample time for something else in Indiana: having fun.
This tour highlights a wide swath of sites in the state that Indiana residents have utilized in some form or fashion for leisurely activities. For even more sites, Discover Indiana users are encouraged to check out the State Parks, State Fair, Historic Theaters, and Resorts and Camps tours. However, for now, Discover Indiana invites you to take a journey across the 19th state and learn about the variety of ways that Hoosiers like to have a good time!
Please keep in mind that each tour is by no means a comprehensive list of sites in Indiana related to each theme. Please be respectful of private property lines when visiting each of these sites.
