Wandering Around America One State at a Time – Indiana

State 12:

Welcome to the next post in my series highlighting states we have visited throughout the years. I hope you will enjoy coming along for the ride!

I will be featuring the states alphabetically. The next state is


Indiana became the 19th state on December 11, 1816 and the capital is Indianapolis.

On our one and only trip to Indiana we spent a night in Elkhart, Indiana to get some work done on our refrigerator and to do some sightseeing. Right after we got set up at the campsite the sky turned black and the rain started coming down in buckets. We ran inside the RV and turned on the tv to discover we were under a severe thunderstorm watch. Luckily, the storm only lasted a short while but by the time it was over it was too late to do anything except eat dinner. The next morning we had to continue on our way after getting the refrigerator repaired.

The storm and refrigerator repairs prevented us from visiting the RV Museum in Elkart or going to South Bend to visit the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Even though we couldn’t spend much time in Indiana I enjoyed seeing the country side as we traveled across the state.

  1. We plan to visit Indiana this summer, on our way from Illinois-where Bill’s mom lives. It’s my mom’s home State and I have relatives there. We’re looking for tips! Sorry the rain prevented you from seeing much-except the beauty as you drove through! Weather is always a constant element to contend with!

    1. Sorry I can’t help you with Indiana tips since we only stayed there that one time. We have driven through it on other trips but didn’t stop. I’ve heard the RV/MH Hall of Fame museum in Elkhart is worth a trip. We saw there was Amish country around there, too.

    2. Hi Debbie. Not sure where you’ll be visiting, but I’d be happy to suggest plenty of places in Michiana. I just started “Family Friendly Michiana” to highlight activities around our area. Feel free to follow.

  2. I know what you mean. We may not get back ther again, either. I’d rather fly than drive to New York City, which is where we’d been on that trip in 2006.


  3. You’ll have to come back and visit us here in Michiana (northern Indiana) sometime. I just started a blog, “Family Friendly Michiana”, where I’ll post fun family activities around our area. So if you can’t make it back for awhile, be sure to follow my blog and enjoy seeing some of the things you missed. Travel safe!
