The first 4 to complete the Spring Selfie Scavenger Hunt will win a $25 gift card to one of the attractions they visited during the hunt!
Now, on to the locations. Visit each place below and take a selfie (or just a photo) with your favorite thing at that place. Once you have visited each one, put all of your selfies/photos together into one post on Facebook or Instagram and tag us and use the hashtag.
THERE IS NO LACK OF SPOTS TO TAKE A PHOTO AT SPRING MILL! PICK YOUR FAVORITE! OF COURSE, WE TOOK OURS IN FRONT OF THE GRIST MILL.
WHAT TO DO WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Spring Mill State Park has so much to offer. Take a step back in time when you visit the Pioneer Village and see its restored cabins and the operating, water-powered Grist Mill. Visitors can also hike, bike, fish and kayak!

SNAP YOUR NEXT SHOT INSIDE THE CAVE, WHILE YOU’RE GEMSTONE MINING OR, LIKE US, AT SITE OF THE LARGEST SINKHOLE IN INDIANA.
WHAT TO DO WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Take an underground boat tour through Bluespring Caverns and see Lawrence County beneath the surface. Visitors can go gemstone mining, take a walk along the Karst Area Nature Trail or get a little more adventurous with kayaking/group tours. A friendly reminder: Keep an eye on the weather. If the park receives too much rain, they have to shut down the cave tours due to flooding. Visitors can still take part in the above-ground activities.
Season will begin March 16, 2021.
TAKE YOUR NEXT SHOT AT OTIS PARK GOLF COURSE! IN OUR PHOTO, YOU CAN SEE THE LIMESTONE BANDSHELL AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE PARK.

SHOW US YOUR FAVORITE ITEM AT THE MUSEUM. WE FOUND THIS NEAT LIMESTONE PIECE OF ART!
WHAT TO DO WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Take a look through the museum. It is full of interesting artifacts from past wars, the limestone industry, the Red Cross and so much more. Find interesting history books for sale in the gift shop or head upstairs to the genealogy section.
WE TOOK OUR PICTURE WITH THE DELICIOUS APPLE CIDER SHAKES AVAILABLE AT APPLACRES. WHAT WILL YOUR PICTURE BE OF?
WHAT TO DO WHILE YOU’RE THERE: Applacres is a small retail market where you will find seasonal plants and veggies, books written by local residents, Amish-made breads, persimmon pulp and… APPLES! If you’ve never tried the shakes, we definitely recommend that you do while you’re there.
