Visit the ‘Cape Cod of the Midwest’ – Relax at the resort town of Culver
A world of fun and relaxation awaits visitors in Culver, which stretches along the glistening waters of Lake Maxinkuckee, the second largest lake in Indiana. Weekenders and vacationers head to the water for sailing and fishing, or just a refreshing dip off the community beach. On land, take in a round of golf or spend an afternoon exploring the area by bike. You’ll find unique shops and boutiques that sell fine art, antiques, sweets and more. Restaurants offer delicious fare with everything from down-home breakfasts to upscale cuisine, and comfortable lodgings to tuck into at the end of the day.
Culver is home to the world-renowned Culver Academies, a private co-ed boarding school that counts actors Hal Holbrook and Joshua Logan among its alums. Watch the school’s legendary Black Horse Troop in action during Sunday afternoon parades. The Troop has ridden in Presidential inaugural parades since 1913.
