Get set for a journey of discovery in Northern Indiana that will take you to places that you might otherwise overlook. Northern Indiana has a rich and diverse heritage of artisans, crafters, and farmers and the new Art and Earth trail allows us to share these nowhere-else-to-be-found treasures with you.
The seven Loops of the trail sweep from Lake Michigan and the Indiana Dunes to areas known for sparkling inland lakes, past the Golden Dome of Notre Dame and onto roads where horse-drawn Amish buggies seem to outnumber cars.
Discover a genuine getaway where you can shake the hand of the crafter who creates one-of-a kind works and talk to the farmer while you pick his blueberries. Settle into historic bed and breakfasts and inns, taste foods authentic to the region, and sample our region’s rich bounty from apples to cheese to artisan breads at farmers markets, u-pick farms and festivals. Northern Indiana is rich in history and you’ll discover trails that Native Americans first walked and the mansions of visionaries who built entrepreneurial empires on their dreams.
