Indianapolis, IN – The Indiana Office of Tourism Development has launched a new travel planning resource just in time for fall. Tour, Taste, Traditions is a promotion that highlights dozens of fall excursions, u-picks and markets, wineries and breweries and festivals throughout Indiana. The information is now available at VisitIndianaFall.com. The new website also features the Fall Color Blog, an interactive tool designed to help track the changing leaves.
“Every Hoosier seems to have a favorite fall tradition. It’s the perfect season to visit one of our pristine state parks, charming small towns or agricultural destinations” said Lt. Governor Becky Skillman. “Families can enjoy an authentic, affordable experience while supporting our small businesses, communities and farms.”
Many destinations are gearing up for fall. Beasley’s Orchard and Gardens has been sharing the bounty of their harvest since the late 1940s. The family-owned agritourism venue located near Danville hosts the Heartland Apple Festival in October, offers a corn maze and sells favorite fall foods from a Civil War-era barn.
“Fall is our busiest time,” said Debbie Beasley. “Visitors want to savor freshly-picked apples, find the biggest pumpkin and enjoy a day in the country. We offer a fun, close-to-home escape.”
Detailed information about some of Indiana’s many great autumn getaway options can be found at the seasonal website. In addition, nearby dining and hotel options are showcased alongside each attraction or event listing. The Fall Color Blog provides frequent updates on leaf-peeping opportunities across the state. Naturalists from DNR are among the experts providing content to the blog.
VisitIndianaFall.com is live through November 14. It is linked with VisitIndiana.com, the official state travel website where discounts, trip ideas and helpful tips are easily accessible. Indiana visitor information is also available via Twitter and Facebook.
Indiana welcomes more than 62 million visitors each year, generating more than $10 billion in visitor spending statewide.
