As the winter months slowly but surely give way to spring, the travel bug starts itching to take flight. While most of us don’t have a week-long tropical cruise scheduled anytime soon, here’s some drivable mini-vacations that can give you a day or two of adventure with less than a four hour road trip. Whether exploring towering natural wonders among Indiana’s forests or enjoying a charming small-town shopping trip, these destinations are sure to make it on your weekend getaway list.
Many residents outside of the Region don't always know about the gems we have here spread throughout Northwest Indiana, but we sure do. We love everything that our home has to offer, but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate getting out and exploring what's beyond the area. We all have that one dream vacation that we either have on our bucket lists or we really hope to make happen one day.

When you’re a potty, things can get rough. Fires and unlucky lightning strikes melt you into a flat, burnt crisp. Your once pristine toilet paper dispenser catches ablaze into a charred mess. A vehicle smashes into you, crumpling your once-sturdy plastic walls. Heavy winds roll you far from your home, and leave you damaged, in a muddy ditch. Not to mention the look of dejection you receive when an individual needing to relieve themselves comes upon your personal disaster zone; the world can be an unforgiving place.
Save on all styles and sizes!
