When I was a kid growing up in Muncie, everyone always talked about heading up to “The Lake.”
“We’re going to The Lake this weekend.” “We’ve got a cabin at The Lake.”
At age 10, I thought there was only one lake in the entire state of Indiana, and everyone went to it during the summer.
When I moved to Syracuse, Indiana, home of Lake Wawasee, I was convinced that everyone was coming to that lake, and they were all driving in front of me.
Of course, Indiana has a lot of lakes, and depending on where you live in the state, you have your own “The Lake” you visit. But have you considered trying any of the others? Here are a few of the bigger lakes around Indiana.
There are 94 or so lakes in the entire state of Indiana, all with their own dining, fishing, boating, and lodging options (you can see an entire list of them here on Wikipedia), so I certainly couldn’t cover them all. But I at least managed to cover my favorite ones, the ones I’ve had a chance to enjoy at some point in my life.
Plus the one that had the
large man-eating dragon small water snake in it.
