Visit Indiana celebrates Tourism Week with special offers


McCormick's Creek State Park has several waterfalls.

There's plenty to see and do in Indiana during the next few months. Here's an announcement from Visit Indiana that outlines special activities and prizes:


Visit Indiana Week is May 2-8, in conjunction with National Travel & Tourism Week. The purpose of this week is to educate the public about the importance and impact of travel and tourism. The Office of Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, the Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) and the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are celebrating by enticing people to explore the outdoors with special giveaways with the Indiana State Nature Passport.

For Visit Indiana Week 2021, DNR is offering free admission to all state parks on Sunday, May 2. It's also a free fishing day without a permit.

The popular Story Inn in Nashville, Indiana.

During Visit Indiana Week, when visitors check in using the Indiana State Nature Passport, they will be eligible for prize packages. DNR and Clif Bar Bakery have donated 20 prize packages, and winners will be chosen randomly. At the end of Visit Indiana Week, one person will win the grand prize: a 2021 State Parks Pass, a $50 gift card for camping and a subscription to Outdoor Indiana magazine. Visitors who donate to the DNR Foundation will also earn a free check-in.

After checking in to 10 places, participants will receive a pair of sunglasses. People who make 25 visits to any of the passport locations will earn a water bottle, and after 40 visits, participants will receive a hat. Check-in to all 59 places on the passport to earn a backpack. Note: The passport does not replace the entrance fee for a state property.

All prizes are available while supplies last.
