Terre Haute Attractions

I have posted on things going on for the weekend to give people stuff to do, websites to visit for ideas, local gift ideas (x2) and local events for the upcoming days. Now I have decided to list a few local attractions.

On those odd warm days of winter, check out Wabashiki.
  • Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area provides fishing for bluegill, crappie, bass and catfish from two ponds on the property.
  • A 14-inch size limit on largemouth bass is in effect
  • Electric motors only are permitted on the ponds
  • Shore line fishing is available at the ponds and the river.
  • Turkey, rabbit, deer, woodcock, duck and goose hunting is available at the property. Night hunting is available for raccoon and fox.
  • Non Toxic shot is required
NO Camping and NO Swimming Allowed.
Please Read and Obey All Signs.

Also for a warm day, go for a walk or ride on the Heritage Trail.
Most of this trail follows the former Terre Haute, Brazil & Eastern (also Vandalia) RR, an abandoned east-west line which connected to Indianapolis.  The Twigg rest area serves as an historically remarkable trailhead.  The trail continues as a bike lane west of 13th Street, then picks up as an interesting urban pathway along 4th Street beside the ISU campus.
There is a trail (from ISU at Tippecanoe) on 5th street that runs North. At Maple Avenue you can turn and ride or walk up to Collett Park on the Maple Ave. Trail.
Also, the 4th street trail (also from ISU at Tippecanoe) you  can travel South to Hulman and then head East on the Hulman Street Trail to about 31st street (this next to Bunches Nursery by the Thompson ditch).

Nothing to do on a raining (or sunny) day? Check out the Vigo County Historical Society.

Rumor has it, Stiffy Green is living there. The Vigo County Historical Society is located at 1411 S. 6th St..
Feel free to call for hours and information: (812) 235-9717

One of my favorite places to go is Dobbs Park.

You can observe the wildlife, or hike through this 105 acre wooded setting. Wander through the wild prairie and watch the beauty unfold in the butterfly gardens. Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 9:00 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.; Closed on Sundays, Mondays, Election days and holidays

Also at Dobbs Park you can visit the Native American Museum.

One more place to go on a winter day or any other day during the year might be the CANDLES Holocaust Museum.

These are a few of my favorite things. Anyone else break into song from the Sound of Music? I know I did.

There are many other attractions in Terre Haute. Feel free to check out Terre Haute's webpage for
