Fall Colors in Brown County, IN


















We have plans to visit friends in southern IN, but they have had some motorhome problems as they were returning north from a caravan. So we decided to head to Nashville, IN to spend a few days enroute. Often called Little Nashville, the town has many historic buildings and is known for its music venues. It is also a real tourist trap. Nearly every building in town is designed to separate you from your money.

None the less-it has several things going for it. It is located in scenic Brown County famous for its fall colors and is also home to the For Bare Feet Company. Ever since our first visit here two years ago, we are hooked on these socks. So we have stocked up on these for the foreseeable future.

We are staying at the Westward” Ho” campground, just outside of town and also close to the Brown County State Park. It has its own small walking trail and view of the fall colors.

Even thought the colors are a bit past their peak-mostly due to a wind storm that occurred the day we drove here, we enjoyed a tour of the country side. It is not an exaggeration to say that some of these roads are among the less traveled. The scenery was very enjoyable.

I love the pictures but wouldn't recognize the town. I saw it back in the mid-1960's, and although it attracted tourists, it wasn't the livlihood of the town the way tourists places are today.

Doggone it, guys! Now you've gone and given us ANOTHER place we have to visit and spend time. We're running out of time to do it all, but we sure appreciate your reports about places like this. We'll make it back on the road next year, come hell or high water.

We just visited there a couple of weeks ago, and you are right. It has turned in to a complete tourist trap. Thanks for sharing.
