If you’ve been with us for a long time then you can probably tell that our family loves Parks Programs. Any kind of park; city, state, national. When I was younger I spent days and days at the park near our house. I remember very little about the first house I lived in but I could tell you about every square foot of the park that was down the street. Now, I know that there aren’t any National Parks in Indianapolis but Indiana has THREE National Parks. For real. Three!

Indiana Dunes has got to be my all time favorite park in Indiana. I haven’t been to the national shoreline, I’ve camped at the State Park but this weekend would be a nice time to check out the Dunes! It is $6 per vehicle to enter  (1215 N. State Road 49, Porter, IN 46304).

George Rogers Clark Memorial commemorates the American Colonel where we could all learn a thing or two…. or two hundred. This site is free 365 days a year. If you happen to be anywhere near Vincennes for the weekend, why not stop by? (George Rogers Clark National Historical Park, 401 S. 2nd St., Vincennes, Indiana 47591 ~ 812.882.776ext.110)

Lincoln Boyhood Memorial $3 per person or $5 per family (3027 E South St, Lincoln City, IN 47552 ~ 812.937.4541).
