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!

Whitewater Canal Scenic Byway
A route that travels three loops in eastern Indiana, the  Whitewater Canal Scenic Byway mirrors the settlement of the Whitewater River Valley beginning on the Ohio River in Lawrenceburg and winding north to Hagerstown. Start your journey at the  Little Cedar Grove Baptist Church, the oldest church in Indiana still on its original site. Experience life in a canal town in Metamora, visiting the  Duck Creek Aqueduct. Experience life on the water at  Whitewater Memorial State Park and Brookville Reservoir. Learn about the importance of the railroad in Eastern Indiana at the  Liberty Depot and Museum in Liberty. Visit two historic buildings in Connersville, the  Historic Elmhurst House and  The Canal House. Close out your journey in Richmond’s  Historic Depot District, home to art, shopping and delicious dining.
