  • Abe Lincoln was proud to call this area his home as a boy. Take a step back in time and see what it was like when he and his family lived here. You can explore 13 Lincoln-era replica cabins and an artifact-filled museum at the Lincoln Pioneer Village. Visit the Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial to see a short film, tour the museum, and take a walk to the living historical farm. Lincoln State Park has preserved over two thousand acres of land that Abe explored as a child. Pick a trail and enjoy the adventure. 
  • The long holiday weekend is a great time to experience a wine trail. The Hoosier Wine Trail includes both wineries, Monkey Hollow Winery & Distillery, and Pepper’s Ridge Winery. 
  • Horseback riding at Santa’s Stables always makes for great family bonding time and precious memories to share for years to come.  
  • Enjoy a movie under the stars at the Holiday Drive-In Movie Theater. All new digital projectors and a new sound system means you can enjoy the nostalgia of the drive-in experience without sacrificing picture and sound quality. After September, you’ll have to wait until next year.
