Visit Indiana Week is May 1-7, in conjunction with National Travel & Tourism Week. This week aims to educate the public about the importance and impact of travel and tourism. The Office of Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch, the Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC), the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the Indiana Foodways Alliance (IFA) are inviting people to explore the state.

“Over 25,000 people have signed up for the passports,” Lt. Gov. Crouch said. “DNR is offering free gate admission to all DNR properties on Sunday, May 1. It’s also a free fishing day without a permit.”

All week during Visit Indiana Week, visitors will be eligible for prizes when they check in using the Indiana State Nature Passport. At the end of the week, one person will win the grand prize, a 2022 State Parks Pass, a $50 gift card for camping and a subscription to Outdoor Indiana magazine. Visitors who donate to the DNR Foundation throughout the month will also earn a free check-in.
