Local things to do:
Here are some tour and restaurant ideas If you are looking for things to do, check out the Parke County Guide Magazine on the desk. There are 30 covered bridges on 5 different routes. You can drive to all of them Quite a lot of difference between all of them that you can enjoy from inside your car.

Turkey Tun State Park is 2-1/2 miles to the left up on our gravel Cox Ford Rd. Just stay to your left til it meets the blacktop. That is Rte 47. Turn Left and go East to the Turkey Run State Park Entrance. Turkey Run has
11 great hiking trails and a suspension bridge to cross Sugar Creek. Check out trail 6 and Sunset Point right behind the Inn at dusk.
On Rte 47 just before the park there are two places for Canoe, tube and Kayak rentals
A new Zip Line adventure is just East of Shades State Park about 15 miles East on Rte 47.

Also a neat place with peanut shells on the floor and large stuffed animal trophies all over is the 36 Saloon. Wheelhouse Donuts has a coffee/ Latte bar and design your own donuts or wraps.
Sun they make Maple frosted donuts with Bacon!
Running 15 miles might about burn off one or two!

Hope you find plenty to do, or just relax.
