Today’s Travel Tuesday goes out to the Uptown East Apartments in Valparaiso, IN! Valpo is a quaint settle-down-town that is home to the University of Valparaiso, Purdue Northwest and Ivy Tech Community College. The winters are brutal, the summers are beautiful and everyone lives their best lives in the fall. Here are some of the must-do’s of Valpo!

Ice Skating in Central Park Plaza

During the winter months, jam out to Top 40 Hits on the ice at Central Park Plaza with your friends and family for a great price! Located in downtown behind Locks of Fun is an outdoor pavilion turned Ice Rink that is sure to provide winter fun for the whole family!

Stacks Bar and Grill

This library-inspired bar and restaurant is probably the coolest place in Valpo. Vintage books and other antique items line the walls and the food and drink selections are top tier. Stacks was featured as one of Yelp’s 50 best restaurants in Indiana, ranking in at a not-so-surprising 3rd place overall. Treat yourself to one of their specialty cocktails (I suggest the Cappucino Martini!) or indulge in the Cookie Skillet. An awesome atmosphere with even better food, what more could you ask for?!

Indiana Dunes

For a more summery excursion, a trip to the Indiana Dunes is a MUST! With over 15 miles of coastline, every Indiana native and tourist alike can feel like they’re on a Florida beach with some of the most spectacular views of Lake Michigan. There are plenty of overnight accomodations from bed and breakfasts to RV Campgrounds and the downtown area is perfect for a Sunday stroll or a Friday night out on the town!

49er Drive-In Theater

I’m a sucker for all things retro and an Indiana Drive-In Theater definitely fits that mold! Equipped with a concession stand and showings of your favorite movies, the 49er Drive-In Theater is a must visit during your time in Valparaiso. The perfect spring or summer date night, girls night or treat yourself night! Plus, I would always suggest seeing a scary movie to enhance the experience!
