Plan a family vacation to Indiana Beach

There’s More Than Corn in Indiana!

For some when they hear a friend say, “There’s More Than Corn in Indiana”, they may think of it as a funny joke or slight for the State of Indiana.  For many however, they are transported back in time.  Taken back to their last memory of Indiana Beach Amusement and Water Park as they start to sing the famous jingle heard by millions.  Odds are they may have last attended with a group of friends or even a large family reunion.

Indiana Beach started operation in 1926 as “Ideal Beach”, a sandy beach area on the newly formed Lake Shafer. Over the past 95 years, Indiana Beach has grown into a regional attraction that has been hosting mid-west family vacations for generations. Indiana Beach Amusement Resort today is home to the Boardwalk lined with unique foods and shopping, roller coasters, children’s rides, a water park and of course the Historic Ballroom that has hosted an impressive list of “who’s who” performing on Saturday Night’s for decades.  Louis Armstrong, The Beach Boys, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Janis Joplin are just a few of the amazing acts to light up the stage of the famous Ballroom.
