About Indiana

Follow the Bouncing Ball to Indiana

Many know us as basketball fanatics, and we do love our hoops! In fact, sports of all kinds reign supreme, so we’re a great place to visit for professional, collegiate, high school or recreational sports. Indiana is the 15th most populous state in the nation. Our residents make their livings in manufacturing, agriculture, education and other industries. The terrain varies greatly from the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan to the rolling hills in southern Indiana and the lush farmland in between. Between those borders lie areas both urban and rural, with plenty to do from amusement parks and hiking to wine trails and nightlife. Learn more about Indiana with the following links.
