Sippin’, Savorin’, and Relaxin’ at the Indiana Wine Fair

For the past 13 years, thousands have flocked to the historic and picturesque Story Inn for the Indiana Wine Fair. And this year was no different, except that I was one of those people!

Even though this year the weather was far less than ideal for late April (cool, rainy, and only in the low 50s), it didn’t seem to slow people down. With over 30 wineries from all across the state, the Wine Fair is one of the oldest and largest wine events in Indiana. No wonder people braved the weather to check it out. After all, who wouldn’t want to spend an afternoon filled with wine, food, and music!

Get Out and Get Biking this Spring: Hesitation Point Bike Shop Relocates and Re-Opens

The past couple of weeks, it’s been easy to see that I’m not alone in my happiness and relief that winter is over. The streets of Nashville have been busy with visitors strolling in and out of shops, parks and walking trails have been filling up, and even the animals seem to be much more active. It’s finally nice enough to be outside again and everyone seems to be taking advantage of it!

As the trails in the State Park and around the county begin to dry out, there are plenty of ways to get outdoors and enjoy Brown County in bloom this spring. There’s hiking, horseback riding, canoeing, camping, zip lining, and of course mountain biking.

Brown County is definitely full of unique shops, unlike those you would find anywhere else. From homemade candy to handcrafted pottery, you can find just about anything here. But, to Rich Hill, there just seemed to be something missing. And that something, in fact, was a magic shop.
