August #MWTravel Chat Featuring Hendricks & Morgan Counties, Indiana

Rural Routes to Main Streets

Disclaimer: Thanks to Visit Hendricks County and Visit Morgan County for sponsoring this post and the August Midwest Travel Twitter Chat. All opinions and views are ours.

Located in Central Indiana – between Bloomington and Indianapolis – lie Hendricks and Morgan Counties. They are connected by food, art, and fun through the Rural Routes to Main Street Cultural Trail. On their own, Hendricks County and Morgan County have their own identities ready to welcome visitors.

Hendricks County takes you back in time with a trip to the days of Andy Griffith in Danville, at the Mayberry Cafe and during the annual Mayberry in the Midwest in May. From personal experience, I can tell you that you need to experience the fried chicken at the Mayberry Cafe!

Get your motor running with a trip to the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals over Labor Day weekend. Stop in for a sip of wine at a local winery or try the craft brews on tap at a nearby brewpub. Grab some fresh flowers or other goods at the Danville Farmer’s Market and a sweet treat from the confectionery.
