More Than Just a Flyover State

The Hoosier state oftentimes gets overlooked as a flyover state, but there is truly some beautiful scenery around Indiana, you just have to look.  Indiana is well known for being a state with a lot of corn, and the Hoosier state comes by it honestly, as Indiana alone produces about 20% of the entire United States popcorn supply. But contrary to popular belief, there is more than just corn in Indiana!   Lincoln State Park is a gorgeous state park in southern Indiana and is home to a fire tower that you can climb and soak in some pretty cool Southern Indiana views.
