Southern Indiana’s River Country is brimming with attractions, fun

Published: Jan/Feb 2001

Southern Indiana’s “River Country” is overflowing with attractions, history, shopping and scenery, so the region has produced a new brochure to help visitors navigate a getaway to the region.

The Southern Indiana Regional Marketing Cooperative has chosen “Indiana’s River Country” as the theme of the 15-county region to reflect the beauty and recreational opportunities of the waterways that course through the area. The Ohio River traces the area’s southern boundary, the Wabash River forms the western boundary and the White Fork and Blue rivers meander through the region.

The brochure, called the River Country Adventure Planner, highlights shopping, family fun, outdoor adventure, arts and entertainment opportunities throughout the region. Some of the attractions listed include caves, museums, state parks, restaurants, historic sites, lakes, scenic byways and casinos. The pamphlet also includes a locator map that pinpoints the sites and contact numbers if travelers require additional information.

The guide was produced by the Southern Indiana Regional Marketing Cooperative, with the support of Indiana Tourism. Member counties include: Clark, Crawford, Dubois, Posey, Floyd, Gibson, Harrison, Orange, Perry, Pike, Scott, Spencer, Warrick, Washington and Vanderburgh.
