IU Local



Bloomington and Monroe County may seem like the perfect place for college students but they also offer a variety of activities for the entire family.

  • Mathers Museum of world cultures has over 20,000 artifacts from around the world and offers an introduction to cultures and customs throughout the world.
  • IU Art Museum, ranked among the nation's best university art museums, features over 35,000 works of art from artists around the world.
  • Lilly Library is a special treat. There you will find the world's smallest book, Abraham Lincoln's desk and chair, all the manuscripts to the Star Trek and James Bond series, a Gutenberg Bible and so much more.
  • Monroe County Historical Museum is located in the historic Carnegie Library downtown. Try to visit during one of the many special programs offered free throughout the year, including special storytelling times.
  • Lake Monroe is the state's largest inland lake. Surrounded by Hoosier National Forest, this lake offers boating, fishing, water-skiing and sailing. Several different types of boats --pontoon, fishing boats or canoes--are available for rental.
  • Griffy Lake, located near downtown, is a nature preserve area that offers canoe and fishing boat rentals for a relaxing afternoon of water activity.
  • Cedar Bluff Nature Conservancy and Wapehani Mountain Bike Park offer hiking trails that provide for picturesque exercise.
  • Hoosier National Forest or Morgan-Monroe State Forest are both in their natural state and have marked trails that can go on for miles. This is serious hiking, so bring plenty of water, some snacks and a compass. These are great mushroom hunting areas in April and May. Two areas stand out the most for parking and marked trails, Grubb Ridge and Hickory Ridge. Hickory has a fire tower that you can climb. The tower was used until the 70's to look for forest fires. Be prepared though, trails are long but not too difficult.
  • Little Africa Wildlife Area, located at the headwater area of Lake Lemon, provides a 3/4 mile loop of open grass area. The area is teaming with birds. Rent a boat or canoe and paddle along the stream of Salt Creek that feeds Lake Monroe.
  • Northfork Waterfowl Resting Area, located in the northern portion, is open only April through October. The scenery is beautiful and the wildlife is abundant. The area is very fragile, so remember to take out whatever you brought in.
