Get Wet. Everything else “pails” in comparison to our Jersey Shore resorts. Chestnut Lake, Lake and Shore, and Sea Pines put you in the perfect place to enjoy the sun, sea and sand. Maine’s Moody Beach is soooo close to beautiful sand beaches.
See a Butter Cow. A big attraction at state fairs, don’t miss Indiana’s own butter creations at the Indiana State Fair, scheduled for August 3-19. Horseshoe Lake is just an hour from the fairgrounds in Indianapolis. What? You’ve never seen a butter cow?
If art and pottery are your passion, schedule the weekend of August 17-18 to take in the artisan’s wares at the Wilmington Art & Pottery Festival, in Wilmington, Ohio, conveniently located just 15 minutes from the Wilmington Preserve.
Pine Country is best in August because we have our Back to School Carnival with lots of fun, games and school supplies for prizes. ~ Kevin McLindsay, Manager, Pine Country (IL)
