Indiana Summer Road Trip Map from Ball State University Libraries

Summertime in the Hoosier State: Mapping Indiana’s Summer Fun Acitivities

The GIS Research and Map Collection commemorated the beginning of the summer season with a new map exhibit, Summer Road Trip: Indiana. The map features over sixty fun activities and places to visit throughout the state of Indiana.

Important landmarks, state parks, and historic sites are included on the map. But the map also features lesser known out-of-the-way restaurants, factory tours, museums, and drive-in movie theaters. Within the span of a weekend, adventurers can tour the wind farms of Benton County, visit a blueberry farm, amusement park, and fish and wildlife area, and eat at a classic drive-in restaurant.

A copy of the map is available in PDF-format from the Ball State University Libraries Cardinal Scholar repository at http://cardinalscholar.bsu.edu/603/. Additional printed copies of the map may be obtained from the GRMC weekdays from 7:30 to 4:30. Contact the staff of the GRMC for more information at 765/285-1097.
