Indiana to Florida via US 231


Start at Cataract Falls, Indiana, in the Lieber State Recreation Area, and travel from Cloverdale, near Indianapolis, to west Florida on US 231, an easy ride with lots of 4-lane highway. From Owensboro, KY to Bowling Green, stay on 2 lane US 231 or take the 4 lane William H Natcher Pkwy, and stop at the  National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY. They have added a lot to the campus since my visit some years ago. Take a detour into Nashville for the historic Ryman Auditorium and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Nearby Centennial Park has a full-scale replica of the Greek Parthenon. This could be a 3 or 4 day ride, depending on the number of stops and sightseeing. See maps below.
