About this trip idea

Indiana’s seven historic and scenic byways have teamed up to create the Indiana Byways Passport. The passport gives you a guide as you explore the byways, collecting unique stamps from the various locations along the route. Officially endorsed as a Legacy Project of the Indiana Bicentennial, there is no better way to see the Hoosier State.

 

This trip idea is a sampling of the highlights listed in the passport. You can get your passport at any of the stops listed and collect your stamps at your own pace!

Founded in 2008, the  Wabash River Scenic Byway celebrates Indiana’s scenic and historical heritage along the Wabash River. A perfect combination of history, art and nature, Indiana’s newest byway is the best way to experience western Indiana. Start your journey at the  Lafayette-West Lafayette Visitors Center before experiencing Indiana history and natural beauty at  Prophetstown State Park and  Tippecanoe Battlefield Park. Visit the first permanent fortified European settlement in Indiana at  Fort Ouiatenon Park & Historic Site.
