March/April 2014 • 30 W e all know that South- ern Indiana is a gem, but spring break might even be a chance for its residents to get out of their normal routines and visit some places they might not normally see while enjoying some much-needed fam- ily time. From historic sites to scenic trails to great food, this is in no way a compre- hensive list of everything there is to do — but merely a small sampling of some of the best our area has to ofer. Go explore! Food and Drink Some of the best day trips are those that involve great food and drinks at res- taurants of the beaten path. Wherever you live, consider fnding a cool restau- rant a few counties away and making an afternoon or evening of the visit. Besides experiencing new food and a new town, it's often the sites to be seen along the way that make the trip a special treat. So whether you live in Jefersonville and take a road trip to Historic Down- town Corydon or live in Paoli and spend a day in New Albany, you'll enjoy taking in the uniquely local sites, shops, and foods of another great Southern Indiana town.
