Summer Travel

Eager to get out of town? If you are looking for a “one-tank trip,” mountain biking experience or a cruise CDPL has resources for you.

Indiana: an atlas of Indiana's greatest off-road bicycle rides claims that it has “everything you need to know about off-road bicycling in Indiana.” Information about 31 rides in the state are complete with maps, photos, trail descriptions and directions, lodging, entertainment and more. One such ride is the Central Indiana Towpath which follows the old Indianapolis Water Company Canal and passes by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, Butler University and brings the rider into Broad Ripple.

My Indiana: 101 Places to See will guide you to unique and interesting sites close to home. One site recommended is Columbus, Indiana. Columbus is noted for its interesting and unique architecture. Local industrialist and philanthropist J. Irwin Miller agreed to pay the architectural fees for schools and other public buildings if the architect would be selected from a list of the nation's very best. Over 35 buildings have been constructed with this stipulation. Additionally, historic buildings have been carefully restored. At the visitors center you can pick up information for the different architectural tours.

Lastly, for that relaxing vacation where you are treated like royalty consider a cruise. CDPL's The Unofficial Guide To Cruises states its goal is to help readers select the right cruise. The book contains information about planning a trip, different types of cruises, and unique cruise adventures.

No matter where you are interested in vacationing CDPL has resources to help you plan your trip!
