Recreation

There’s no shortage of recreation in Northern Indiana. Bike down a tree-lined country road. Splish, splash and sun on our beaches. Take a long walk down the fairways of one of our golf courses. Bowl a perfect strike. Birdwatch in one of our beautiful parks. Cast your line out for a day of fishing. Try geocaching. Go for a hike. Hop in a boat. Putt through a windmill. One thing is for sure: you won’t be bored.
