Located on the Wabash River, New Harmony is a historic town of just under a thousand residents in southwest Indiana.  The town’s history included two failed attempts to form utopian societies in the early nineteenth century.  Much of the town has been preserved, and includes a roofless church, Labyrinth State Memorial, the Working Men’s Institute & Library, and the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art.  Please visit the New Harmony website for details. Just four miles south is Harmony State Park which has cabins, camping, mountain biking, and hiking.  In addition to its normal attractions, New Harmony is hosting the Arts in Harmony Festival; a free open air art, music, and fine craft festival on this weekend.


Hoosiers Out On Tandems (HOOTs) will be your host for a marvelous getaway weekend of tandem bicycle riding.  Please complete and mail us the
