Summer Fun in B-town for the Whole Family

Categories: story ideas

Do you write primarily for parents, or grand parents? Summer is a great time to pack up the family and head for Indiana's coolest college town! Bloomington's many natural resources provide an outdoor playground big enough for even the most rambunctious kids (or grown-ups), including over 200 miles of trails, four golf courses, 10,700 acres of water and thousands of acres of forest . . . complete with a fire tower to climb!

In addition to outdoor fun, Bloomington offers world-class museums, including WonderLab, named one of the nation's Top 25 Science Centers by Parents Magazine, the IU Art Museum and more. Plus, with many of the university's students home for the sumer, it's a great time to explore the IU campus, one of the five most beautiful in the country!
