In the winter months, Indiana's Cool North truly earns its name with a variety of outdoor activities like ice skating, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. While some activities are weather-dependent, seize the days when conditions align perfectly. Moreover, there are specific ice skating opportunities available that don't rely on snow or cold weather, making them a must-see!
