Visiting Southern Indiana

As fall approaches, southern Indiana residents know how to make the most out of the remaining warm weather. Fall festivals, farmer's market's, family-friendly fun and more – southern Indiana communities welcome visitors to enjoy an abundance of outdoor fun this season.

Giving visitors quick and easy access to Louisville while providing a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, New Albany and Clarksville boast enough one-of-a-kind attractions to make them travel destinations in their own right. Check out the Carnegie Center for Art & History in New Albany, where in addition to award-winning exhibits like "Ordinary People, Extraordinary Courage: Men & Women of the Underground Railroad," visitors can enjoy free monthly Family Fun Workshops.

French Lick's charms know no bounds. There may be no better way to get a sense of local personality than by browsing the homegrown and handcrafted items available at the Orange County Homegrown Farmer's Market. Held every Tuesday and Saturday through October 31st in downtown French Lick, this is a must-visit event.

To the immediate east in Paoli, visitors find southern Indiana's rugged and "maniacal" side. Held at Paoli Peaks on September 19th, the 2015 Rugged Maniac event sends participants down an arduous three-mile obstacle course. Register now to take the challenge or simply join the maniacs for an epic post-race party promising mechanical bull rides, adult bounce houses, and plenty of games and activities.

When the snow finally does roll in, Paoli Peaks is the place for unmatched skiing, snowboarding, and snowtubing. It's hard to pinpoint the first snowfall of the season, but French Lick visitors can plan for Paoli Peaks to open up some time around mid-November.

French Lick visitors and residents get in the holiday spirit by boarding the Polar Express, November 3rd through January 3rd. Departing from the French Lick Scenic Railway at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, the express ride features hot chocolate, story telling, entertainment, and more.
