About Bloomington

The terrain and the university are two defining elements that have shaped this Indiana town and its residents. The hills, forests, and lakes provide a valuable and well-protected haven. Hardworking Hoosiers quarried and milled the limestone, which is then used to create spectacular buildings and sculptures around the state and country. Students and professors come to Indiana University from all over the world, bringing their ideas and goals to a community that welcomes everyone.

The lakes and parks are excellent in the summer, with perfect weather and a notable absence of students during Indiana University's summer break.

It's simple to fill your stomach with excellent food, but it's not every day that you can fill your soul with a delicious experience. That makes Bloomington's culinary scene so unique: it's local, varied, and pleasantly satisfying.
