Discover Indiana - Boyhood Home of Abe Lincoln

Discover Indiana

Northern Indiana Amish

Almost 80 years after Indiana's state motto was adopted, one can venture to say that it still holds true -- Indiana is indeed the "The Crossroads of America."  The state's diversity can be seen when one looks at the high-profile people who have hailed from the Hoosier State -- brooding actor James Dean, journalist Ernie Pyle, President Abraham Lincoln, talk show host David Letterman and teamster leader Jimmy Hoffa,  just to name a few. 

Indiana's diversity is what makes it a great travel destination -- there's so much to do in this Midwest state that visitors will never be bored. The small town of Shipshewana, in the heart of Indiana's Amish Country, has become one of the state's famous shopping areas for people looking for good deals on homemade crafts, quilts and furniture. 

Business travelers will most likely find themselves in Indianapolis, which has an amazing convention center linked by covered walkways to 2,800 hotel rooms at seven hotels, the Indianapolis Artsgarden and numerous restaurants and shops. And travelers who like sporting events absolutely love Indianapolis -- it's home to the infamous Indianapolis 500, not to mention many other sporting events and teams that'll keep the most avid fan cheering for days!

Historical Notes: Oddly enough, the people of the "Hoosier State" of Indiana have no idea where the term "hoosier" originated. Some say it evolved as a term describing Indiana’s settlers as woodsmen or rough hill people. There is also a general belief that a Louisville contractor named Hoosier employed several Indianans, thus the moniker of “Hoosier’s men” was applied.
