Take a trip to Indiana for outdoor adventure, top-notch arts and entertainment and charming towns with accommodations ranging from quaint and cozy to posh and elegant.
There’s no easy way to travel through Brown County, Indiana. And that’s precisely the reason to go.
Route 135 twists and turns as it makes its way south from Nashville, Indiana.

Turn when you get to the town of Gnaw Bone. Turn again when you reach Stone Head. Keep your eyes peeled for skittish white-tail deer and slow-moving farm equipment. And while you’re at it, turn off your cell phone.
