State Overview

As the 15th most populous state in the nation, Indiana has a lot to offer visitors and retirees alike. Local residents, known as "Hoosiers", have options ranging from the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan, to the rural farmland in the middle of the state, all the way to the cultural hotspot of urban Indianapolis. For sports enthusiasts, the state is steeped in sports culture, from college basketball, to the annual Indy 500 NASCAR race. However, Indiana also has a lesser known softer side, with abundant hiking, wine trails, and culture. Foodies will find themselves at home with strong "farm to table" culinary movement, and a variety of local food tours that explore and highlight this "locavore" cuisine. The state has something for everyone, so check out some of the best places to retire in Indiana below!
