Ogden Dunes is similarly laid-back and is even closer to the attractions of Chicago.

Taking the South Shore to one of the many summer festivals and free concerts in the city is a time-honored tradition among both Hoosiers and visitors to the state.
Downstate, the topography shifts from the typically flat Midwestern terrain to a hilly, rolling character that's more southern in nature. Brown County, just outside of Bloomington and Indiana University, is a must-see of visitors in this part of the state. Blessed with magnificent fall foliage and small-town charm, Brown County has been a favorite for generations. Nashville, the county seat of Brown County, is a former artist's haven that's now a favorite among visitors for its shops, restaurants, and festivals. Just heading out of town and taking a cruise and looking at the spectacular colors and discovering friendly little towns like Needmore or Gnaw Bone is a special Hoosier treat. In this area, there are a number of Indiana vacation rentals by owner, from rustic cabins to condos, from which to choose.
