Fueled by the legendary Hoosier hospitality, Indiana is a state with a captivating blend of rural and urban sights – whether it’s the Indianapolis Motor Speedway or the Indiana Dunes National Park on the southern shore of Lake Michigan. The resorts in Indiana are set up for you to enjoy the great outdoors, from world-class golf courses to pontoon boat trips and paddleboarding. Enjoy a stay at one of these great resorts in Indiana, bookable on Culture Trip.

Swan Lake Resort, for golf lovers

While it may take its name from a certain elegant, long-necked creature, the focus is firmly on birdies and eagles at the Swan Lake Resort. The 36 holes of golf here are in country-club condition – but you won’t have to pay the hefty membership fee that usually comes with pristine fairways. The golf theme runs through the resort, with fairway villas and houses, plus 90 hotel rooms that often come with views of the course.

Belterra Casino Resort, for a weekend of entertainment

Belterra had a rocky start – its opening was delayed when the riverboat that houses the casino collided with a barge on the way to Indiana and sank. Since then, however, things have gone swimmingly. The hotel that accompanies the casino boasts great dining options – including 19 Steak & Seafood and the Stadium Sports Bar & Grill. TVs are everywhere there, so you won’t miss a second of the action.

Varsity Clubs Of America – South Bend by Diamond Resorts, for sports fanatics

Just down the road from the University of Notre Dame – home of the famed Fighting Irish football team – Varsity Clubs Of America is a sports lover’s dream stay. In addition to the fun, sports-themed decor, you can show off your skills at the minigolf course, sports courts or billiard room. There’s also an outdoor grill area for raucous game-day barbecues.

New Harmony Inn Resort and Conference Center, for nature enthusiasts

The name of this resort in Indiana hints at the place where you’ll spend a lot of time after you arrive. New Harmony is about 3mi (5km) from Harmonie State Park, with its gorgeous swimming pool, picnic areas, ravines and pristine landscape. With a huge number of trails crisscrossing the park, it’s perfect for biking and nature hikes.

Oakwood Resort, for adventure seekers

There are 27 acres (11ha) at Oakwood Resort for you to turn into your playground – including paved paths for jogging, a 1mi (1.6km) bike route and hiking trails. And thanks to the proximity of Lake Wawasee, you can also try your hand at kayaking or paddleboarding, and hop on a pontoon boat. For the kids, there’s an arcade and a playground, plus a sandy beach with a pier.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
