Day trips are a great way to see some really cool things near your home town. Since they are close to home they normally won’t cost as much because you don’t have to worry about hotels. I live in Evansville, IN which is in the Southwest Corner of the state. Because of our location many great day trips for us might also make a good day trip if you are coming from Indianapolis, IN (3 hours Northeast), St Louis, MO (2.5 hours West), Louisville, KY (2 hours East), Cincinnati, OH (3.5 hours Northeast) or Nashville, TN (2.5 hours South).
