In many of these cases, each accolade is awarded to a different small town in the state. However, when it comes to the coolest small town in Indiana, it's one that has been highlighted in the past.

What is the Coolest Small Town in Indiana?

When it comes to being one of the coolest towns, not only in Indiana but in the entire country, one travel website says that one Indiana town really stands out. Far & Wide, turned to the likes of U.S. News & World Report, Reader's Digest, Architectural Digest, The Travel Channe,l and House Beautiful magazine to determine that Nashville, Indiana is one of the coolest small towns in America.

Why is Nashville the Coolest?

Nashville is a town that I have visited a few times, and it's no surprise to me that it was named the coolest town in Indiana. Here's what Far & Wide says:

<p>Nashville is not just a music city in Tennessee. In Indiana, just outside of Bloomington, yet another awesome Nashville awaits.</p><p>The artist T.C. Steele lived here, and visitors can explore his home and gardens to see his Impressionist works. Pioneer Village gives a hint to what life was like in its early days. And the town wows with its setting in the undulating hills of the southern part of the state.</p>

As I said, I have been to Nashville, Indiana a few times, and for a small town, there really is a lot to see and do there. From the delicious food, numerous shops, and everything in between, there is something there for everyone in the family to enjoy. Plus it's not far from Brown County State Park, which is perfect for camping and more outdoor fun.

Oh, and if you are looking for great things to see and do in the Fall, Nashville and Brown County is the place to visit. It's absolutely beautiful that time of year. Brown County has been nicknamed the “Little Smokies” because of the area’s resemblance to the Great Smoky Mountains. There, you'll find nearly 16,000 acres of rugged hills, ridges, and fog-shrouded ravines.

If you have never visited Nashville, Indiana, you need to add it to your bucket list no matter what time of year. For those who are looking into doing some traveling this year, you might want to also check out some of the other coolest small towns in America. You can view those by clicking here.

16 Indiana Towns with Dirty-Sounding Names

A majority of these towns were given their names in the mid-to-late 1800s as settlers making their way across the country found unclaimed plots of land and decided to make them their own. While I imagine they thought the names they came up with were innocent, and perhaps a tribute to something in their lives, pop culture has warped our minds to the point since then that we can't help but think of something about the town that was never intended by its founders. Take a look at this list. I guarantee there's at least one name that will make you chuckle.
