Hendricks County CVB Giving Away Three Trips This Summer

The Hendricks County Convention and Visitors Bureau is encouraging visitors to “Come, Stay and Play” with three getaway vacations next month on their TourHendricksCounty.com website.

Their Win & Grin Getaways contest features three different themed trips, one per winner. Each winner will also receive a new Sony Bloggie camera so they can share their Hendricks County vacation with their friends and family.

Win & Grin Getaways

Win one of three trips to Hendricks County, west of Indianapolis

When you enter, you get to choose one of three trips for a group of four:

  • Adventure & Outdoor Recreation: This getaway will provide an insider’s look at the county’s largest nature preserve, as the winning group joins a naturalist at McCloud Nature Park near North Salem for a nature hike. The adventure continues later in the day as members take on an indoor rock climbing wall at The Crag Climbing Gym in Brownsburg and then enjoy a delicious sit-down dinner at Dawson’s Too – Sticks & Stones restaurant in Brownsburg. After a comfortable night’s stay at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Brownsburg, a final adventure awaits as the group goes on a scenic horseback ride through the woods at Natural Valley Ranch in Brownsburg.
  • Arts & Culture: This trip will bring out the creative side in any group as they join a private class with Indiana Artisan Lisa Pelo. Through a private session, she will teach the group the fine art of glass blowing. The visit also includes dinner for four at a local restaurant, an overnight stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Avon and a hands-on class at the Gallery on the Square in Danville. In addition to plenty of memories, this lucky foursome also will take home a Rural Routes to Main Street Cultural Trail gift basket.
  • Family Fun: This trip begins with a refreshing day at Splash Island Family Waterpark in Plainfield including its new Leisure River. Then, head to Monster Mini Golf in Avon for some black-light, indoor miniature golf before enjoying dinner at a local eatery. After an overnight stay at the Hampton Inn in Plainfield, the family will spend the remainder of their trip at the Indianapolis Zoo.
