We Still Love to Visit Our Hoosiers
Let’s face it, these are odd and crazy times! Things look very different at IU this semester but one thing is still for sure; we all still love to visit our Hoosiers and they love visits from us. There are plenty of different food options that offer outside and patio seating, are operating at 50% capacity indoors, and others provide pick up or delivery to adhere to and cater to potential COVID-19 related concerns.
- Buffa Louie’s
- Farm Bloomington
- Lennie’s Bloomington
- Mexican Eats
- Nick’s English Hut
- Noodles & Company
- Runcible Spoon Cafe
- Scholars Inn Bakehouse
There are also many outdoor activities to participate in to make memories in a safe and socially distanced manner. Watch the IU game at a local bar and sit outside. They have great food and offer multiple specials on game days.
- B-Line Trail – This beautiful trail is 3.1 miles that connects downtown Bloomington to various local neighborhoods. This trail is a fabulous way to see the town. Many even rent a Pace bike which is $1 per 15 minutes. I prefer biking this trail because it allows you to see all the hidden gems in Bloomington.
- Paradise Rental Boats – Pack up your charcuterie board and get ready to watch the best sunset of your life. Renting out a Pontoon boat to go float around lake Monroe is my idea of a great day with family and friends. Boat reservations can easily be made online and are definitely worth it! Check out the boating specials of the day.
- Most High Adventures Outfitters – Canoes, Kayaks, and Bikes, oh my! If you really want to explore nature, I definitely recommend picking one of the many adventures Most High Adventures Outfitters has to offer. You can go for half a day or a full day if you are up for it. Kayak and mountain biking 4-hour trips are also offered for $75 a person and it is a great way to have some fun.
- Eagle Pointe Golf Club – Who doesn’t love a family golf outing? Take a day to play on this gorgeous golf course with your family any day from 10 AM-4 PM. It is recommended to book the time you will play golf online. After a nice win, go visit their Pub and Bistro for some delectable food.
- Blackwell Horse Camp – If you really want to get down and dirty with nature, I recommend camping out in the Hoosier National Forest. There are over 200 scenic trails to explore before dozing off next to the campfire. Who doesn’t love ending their night with a s’more sugar rush?
