In fact, sports of all kinds reign supreme, so Indiana is a great place to visit for professional, collegiate, high school or recreational sports. Indiana is the 15th most populous state in the nation. The terrain varies greatly from the sandy beaches of Lake Michigan to the rolling hills in southern Indiana and the lush farmland in between.
