I’ve been on plenty of wine trails, but I had never heard of a glass trail until I was in Indiana recently. Needless to say I was intrigued. I love glass art so I was thrilled to discover Indiana’s Glass Trail.
There are currently seven destinations in East Central Indiana that are on Indiana’s Glass Trail. There are other which is the closest to me 🙂
