Indiana family vacations are about the relaxed lifestyle in the lesser-known Nashville's 108 parks and bike rides through Indianapolis' River State Park. There is so much more to Indiana though. Celebrate Christmas year round, or float about on the Geist Reservoir and tuck into tasty Amish treats.
Cowboys and safaris await in Indiana
On Indiana family vacations you can celebrate Christmas all year round in Santa Claus, where every conceivable family attraction awaits. Meet the giant melting snowman at Frosty's Fun Center, with its arcade games, 18 hole miniature golf course, car racing and much more. Watch a movie in the comfort of your own vehicle at the Holiday Drive in Movie Theater, or ride the roller coasters at Holiday World Splashin' Safari. The Thunderbird is America's only winged roller coaster, looping and flying you through woods. Next on the itinerary for family vacations in Indiana is Fort Wayne. The forty acre Children's Zoo offers thrilling attractions, animals, and spectacular grounds. Take a trip through Africa, meeting lions, hyenas, and monkeys before making a splash in the Australian Adventure zone, where stingrays soar above you.
At Moose Lake Christian Craft Village, pick up some picnic items at the Amish delicatessen and enjoy them overlooking the five-acre lake. You can also hire canoes, kayaks, and pedalos. There are hundreds of crafts and an outdoor adventure playground. Stop in at the eleven-acre Bloomingdale Park for more outdoor playground fun. Indiana family vacations wouldn't be complete without a trip to Fort Harrison State Park. Spectacular pine forests, picturesque lakeshores, and woodland walkways are yours for the exploring. In the Camp Glenn area, the Museum of 20th Century Warfare houses a fascinating collection of artifacts and uniforms once worn by the soldiers of last century. Continue your outdoor adventure on Geist Reservoir, where the full range of water sports on offer is ideal for making memories on family weekend getaways in Indiana.
