I always love this time of year. We get more of those 70-degree days, and the guys start getting together again for some golf, disc golf or some extreme sports.
My favorite place to get out and play is Festival Country Indiana, located just south of Indy.
Festival Country is home to great golf courses, disc golf and foot golf courses, and air sports like skydiving and paragliding.
First of all, why not make this the year to try skydiving or take classes to learn paragliding. Franklin Airfield is home to Explore Freefall Skydiving, Highly Dangerous Skydiving Center, both of which open for the season in mid-March, and Midwest Powered Paragliding, which starts instructing students each April.
The reason we all work hard is so we can play hard, too.
If you like your feet firmly planted on the ground, Festival Country is known for its beautiful, challenging and fun golf courses. The area also features FootGolf at The Legends. There are also opportunities to play disc golf at Blue Heron Park, Grassy Creek Disc Golf Course, and Freedom Park. A fourth area disc golf course is being installed this spring at Johnson County Park.
When you get done playing, there's nothing better than checking out the craft brew scene or chowing down on some made in Festival Country eats. There are some awesome burger joints, sushi spots and other places to chow down.
There are also great food and brew events. Tickets are now on sale for one of the biggest craft brew events in the state: Death & Taxes Day. Click here to learn more about everything there is to do in Festival Country Indiana. Find the perfect accommodations here.
