Moving to Indiana

Written by Alyssa Howard,

Indiana, the “Hoosier State,” is in the Great Lakes region, a center for mass marketing and manufacturing. Although these are two of the state's specialties, that's not all that goes on in Indiana. Residents can rejuvenate in mineral springs or explore Wyandotte Cave, one of the largest caves in the nation. Sports fans will rejoice as the Hoosier State is home to the Indiana Pacers, Indianapolis 500 and the Hilly Hundred bicycle tour.
