Make a New Year's resolution to discover nearby destinations

After returning from the long drive or flight to grandma's and gaining a few pounds from all of the holiday goodies, a lot of people will make New Year's resolutions to save money and lose weight.

Well if you really want to live better in 2010, resolve to do more travel close to home. Here are some top winter destinations near Indianapolis:

  • Pokagon State Park in Angola is a great winter destination in northern Indiana - complete with a toboggan run. Indiana's state park inns are currently offering 2 for 1 winter rates.
  • Perfect North Slopes in Lawrenceburg and Paoli Peaks in (you guessed it) Paoli offer downhill snow skiing (in Indiana?) without the pricey trip to Aspen.
  • Battle Ground's Wolf Park features (you guessed it again) real wolves showing off their winter coats for the Winter Wolves program January 23.
  • McCormick's Creek State Park in Spencer features waterfalls that are all the more breathtaking when frozen.

These are just a few of the great places to visit in Indiana in the winter.
