Outdoor Family Fun Ideas
Patoka Lake is Southern Indiana’s #1 recreation area that offers boating, swimming, water-skiing, fishing, hunting, biking, hiking, canoeing, and camping.
Enjoy clear, clean water on a spacious, uncrowded lake. During the week, it could seem that Patoka Lake is your own personal haven. Toward dusk, the lake is usually ever-so-smooth… perfect for skiiing or sinking a line.
Take a hike at the Ferdinand State Forest and take on the challenge of climbing the popular fire tower! Featuring a lake with a beach area and boat/kyak launch, spend the day exploring nature.
Root for the Dubois County Bombers at Huntingburg League Stadium. The Bombers are a collegiate wood bat baseball team featuring players from college rosters throughout the United States. The team calls League Stadium home during the summer months, just as the Rockford Peaches did in the movie. During Bombers games, Peaches are in the stadium helping everyone have a great time while watching great baseball.
Be sure to check out the promotional nights at League Stadium. Every bombers game is a show on and off the field…It’s not just baseball, it’s an EXPERIENCE!

The Tell City Pretzel Experience
One, tradition since 1858. Visit and tour the Tell City Pretzel Factory, located at 402 Jackson Street in Jasper, IN, where they make and bake the famous hand crafted pretzels known for the CRUNCH and variety of flavors!
Totally impressed with this place. I went to their grand opening on 4/8/2022. I was impressed by the variety of products from pretzels (hard and soft) to various sausages, cheeses, and local honey. It’s the perfect place to shop to create your own home charcuterie board. I took their tour and found the process of making pretzels very interesting. Check out my pictures and video of the tour. I highly recommend you visit them and try a few samples!
