The name Indiana has been in use since around 1760, and is said to mean "Land of the Indians". Native American tribes have inhabited the land since prehistoric times. There are several ancient burial mounds in Indiana that have been preserved, include those near Evansville in southwestern Indiana.

Indiana is a relatively flat country. The highest natural point in the state is Hoosier Hill, which stands at a height of just 1,257 feet (383 meters) above sea level. The state experiences a humid continental climate with cool winters and warm summers. In winter, temperature can drop below 0°F (-18°C) while in summer it can reach 88°F (31°C). May to July are the wettest months in the state.

Travel to Indiana

The Indianapolis International Airport receives flights from major airports around the country. If you are driving to Indiana, you can take Interstate 80 and 90 that cuts across the northern part of Indiana, going east-west. I-65, I-69, I-70 and I-74 radiates out of Indianapolis.

Travel within Indiana

Driving would be the most practical way to explore Indiana. There are fourteen Interstate highways that crosses through Indiana, often known as the "Crossroads of America" (not because of the highways, but rather because of the railroad tracks that were in place before the highway came into the picture).
