“We enlisted the experts from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the Brewers Guild of Indiana, to help us find the Best of Indiana from across the state,” said Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch. “This year’s categories allow travelers to explore our small towns, enjoy our outdoor destinations and sample a brew from a local brewery.”

Ale, Stout, or Lager, no matter what the favorite may be, Indiana has a craft brew for everyone. Hoosier breweries consistently rank as some of the best in the world at prestigious competitions, like the Great American Beer Festival and the Brewers' Cup. The Brewers Guild of Indiana has come up with a list of 50. It’s up to drinkers to narrow it down.

Indiana offers more than 3,600 miles of local, state, federal and non-profit trails open to the public. That’s why the tourism bureau asked the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to help find a variety of trails across the state and off the beaten path. Choose your favorite trail by voting daily.

Main Street is considered the liveliest place in a small town, and Indiana has more designated Main Streets than any other state in the U.S. The bureau enlisted the help of OCRA, which oversees Indiana’s Main Street program, to select our list of towns and cities offering the ideal Main Street destinations. See which towns made the ballot and vote for your favorites.

“This is your chance to let your voice be heard,” said Misty Weisensteiner, Director of the Indiana Office of Tourism Development. “One of the best things about voting in this campaign is you get to learn about incredible locations you might not have known about and maybe plan a visit as well.”

While Perry County didn’t have a community make the Main Street category, Perry County Visitors Bureau Director Betty Cash encourages all to visit the website and support some of the local ventures receiving statewide attention.

Votes will be counted until Nov. 3 and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.
