20 Reasons We Love Indiana
Plan a day trip to this premier interactive history park sprawling across 800 acres in Fishers (17 miles north of downtown). Costumed interpreters at Conner Prairie play historically accurate roles in areas including an 1836 town and one of Indiana's first farms. In the newest exhibit, visitors can also soar 350 feet above the prairie at the 1859 Balloon Voyage.
Check the website for special events held throughout the year, especially Follow the North Star, a compelling re-enactment of the Underground Railroad. (800) 966-1836; connerprairie.org
