My question, as we head into the better-weather months: What are some of your favorite places to visit in the state? Where have you found culture, cuisine, canoeing...or anything worth leaving home for?
Further, how far afield are you willing to go for a promising arts experience? I often write about activities in Bloomington and West Lafayette, but what would prompt you to go even further? For the right concert, would you go to the Star Plaza Theatre in Merrillville (don't bother checking-- there's not much is on the lineup right now)? Which headliners would inspire a trip south to the Horseshoe Casino? ("30 Rock"/"SNL" star Tracy Morgan is coming in May.) Is there a favorite play you'd be willing to trek to see at Theatre at the Centre in Munster or the New Harmony Theatre?
