Spring is a wonderful time to get outdoors and enjoy nature with your family. There are several places in Spencer County that are family favorites for doing just that.

With the flowers blooming and trees full of fresh green leaves, it's a great time to visit Saint Meinrad Archabbey. You can take a self-guided tour, or find a park bench to sit and enjoy the scenery. Stop by the gift shop before you leave to see what beautiful items they have.


A day trip to Lincoln State Park walking the trails and paddle boating in Lake Lincoln is a great family adventure. Walk around the Lincoln Bicentennial Plaza which celebrates Lincoln's 200th birthday and take a peek into the Nature Center featuring interactive exhibits for the entire family.

If you're up for a picnic, pack your basket and head to Lincoln Ferry Park. The park commemorates where Abraham Lincoln operated his ferryboat business on the Ohio River from Kentucky to Indiana. Don't forget the deviled EGGS!

Selfie Fun

Apr 11, 2014


Did you know the Visitors Bureau is governed by a tourism commission? We have a talented group of seven board members who help make sure this destination is all it can be.

Each year we gather the tourism commission and Visitors Bureau staff to brainstorm ideas of ways to make the visitation experience even better. This morning after a four-hour planning session, we jumped on the group #selfie band wagon and wanted to share it with you!

Can you believe we were able to get all ten of us in the photo? It took some long arms and a few tippy toes but we did it!
