The last of the “20 IN 20” is “Winter Traditions”

Dear All,

The last of the “20 IN 20” is “Winter Traditions”. Although the weather has not been such that many of these winter activities can be enjoyed currently, we most likely will have some cold and snow before spring. Quite a few are Holiday activities, so these need to be enjoyed quickly (or kept in mind for next year).

The “20 IN 20” has had quite a variety all year, and you can still check out all the places, activities, and attractions from each list. From Historic Sites and Museums, places to eat and snack, outdoor adventures, sites that are unique to Indiana, and many more – what a variety and something that can appeal to everyone. So if you are looking for places to go and things to do close to home take a look at all of the “20 IN 20”. While you may not be traveling much currently, feel comfortable eating out, or going places around others – hopefully this will all change next year and we will be able to get back to a more normal life. Keep these places in mind throughout our State when that day comes.

Winter Traditions
Bundle up for some Indiana winter fun. Visit Indiana’s final #The20IN20 list features the must-see, must-do winter traditions around the state.

“There’s no shortage of activities in Indiana to do during the winter months,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch. “Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast who likes sledding and skiing or someone who wants to explore different light displays, this list could fill up all your weekends.”

Santa Claus, Indiana, is the original Christmas town. From visiting the place where “Santa’s elves” answer all his letters to a new Christmas-theme fireworks display. Experience the story of Rudolph told in brilliant LED lights. The Santa Claus Land of Lights is a 1.2-mile drive-through family Christmas light adventure located inside Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort. If you can’t make it to Santa Claus, you can watch HGTV’s special “Surprising Santa Claus” on Christmas Day.

Go “lightseeing” instead of just sightseeing this year. Many Indiana communities create wonderful light displays, some you can walk around, and others for you to drive through, like Shipshewana Lights of Joy.

“Indiana is an outdoor wonderland in the winter, so grab your coat and gloves,” said Misty Weisensteiner, director of Visit Indiana. “The scenery in the Hoosier State is just as beautiful in the snow as the other three seasons.”
