Shamrock Lakes, Indiana

No, this isn’t located in Ireland and you won’t see any leprechauns lurking around clover patches, but this town in Blackford County is ideally situated at a group of 6 lakes that were created in the 1960s. It is one of only five places in the US that is named after Ireland’s emblem, the shamrock!

A town with an appreciation of classic Hollywood, Shamrock Lakes hosts an annual James Dean festival for all those movie buffs out there. There is also a Run Rod and Custom Car show. Check out the New Bremen Historical Museum or the Blackford County Courthouse if you’re into history. Stroll through Hoosier Park and end the day with a cool drink at Mississinewa Tavern.
