8. Tell City Pretzels Since 1858, pretzel makers have twisted this secret-recipe dough into addictively salty-crunchy snacks. Call ahead if you want to see pretzels being made; you might get to learn how to twist, too. See reviews and ratings. (812) 548-4499; tellcitypretzel.com
9. Capers Restaurant Yes, it's eclectic. Dishes from New Orleans on a menu with Hoosier classics? But it works. The owners' Gulf Coast roots--and love for their adopted home--shine in Tell City, especially in the creamy potato soup, muffaletta and fried chicken. See reviews and ratings.

10. Blue Heron Vineyards Bed and Breakfast at Rocky Point After a night in this Cannelton farmhouse, you can choose to have breakfast in the house or outside at the winery.
