Broadway Fountain - An ornate fountain that is one of only four remaining of this style in the world. Originally exhibited in Philadelphia in 1876, it was presented to the city in 1886 by the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Originally cast in iron, it was recast in bronze to commemorate the nation’s bicentennial in 1976. • Lanier Mansion State Historic Site - The restored 1844 Greek Revival home of JFD Lanier. This National Historic Site is one of the most influential figures in Indiana’s history in the first half of the 19th century. • Clifty Inn - Indiana’s Best Kept Secret! The inn overlooks the Ohio River allowing us to nestle in the park's scenic beauty and be close to historic downtown Madison and its many offerings. Waterfalls and trails are some of the main attractions in the park, and so is the delicious home cooking in The Falls Restaurant. • Rockin Thunder River Tours - Cruise up the Ohio River from Madison, Indiana to Carrollton, Kentucky then up the Kentucky River to a Lock and Dam built in 1838. Your Captain and crew will share river stories and help spot Bald Eagles and other wildlife. • Historical Trolley Tour of Madison - Madison has long been a tourism destination known for its natural and built beauty, boasting over 200 years of historic architecture; tree lined streets-capes, a lively commercial district, walk-able neighborhoods, colorful gardens, and assortment of artistic offerings. It is an inspirational place, a combination of the old and new which makes Madison unique. Beautifully preserved, historic in nature, but interestingly progressive and contemporary, it has the fresh vibe of residents who are choosing to live ‘off the grid’ in a rural yet, urban setting. The natural and built environment invites those from all over and inspires the artist to tell the story with their art, their words, and images that are unique to this lovely little city. • Clifty Falls State Park History Tour (onboard the motorcoach with minimal walking) - Home of deep cut gorges, sheet rock walls and plunging waterfalls. Like the proverbial cowboy who first viewed the Grand Canyon one cannot help think, "Something has happened here!" Clifty Falls and the nearby Ohio River are products of the Ice Age. From the lip of Clifty Falls at an elevation near the general level of the county, Clifty Creek plunges down more than 70 feet. In nearly three miles of canyon, the creek descends another 250 feet to the Ohio River below. There are four major waterfalls and numerous minor ones in the park. For many years, the park consisted of 617 acres which included the falls, the canyon and the immediate upland rim. In 1965, the park was more than doubled in size by the acquisition of adjoining upland fields from the Madison State Hospital. • The Historic Broadway Hotel and Tavern - Serving the community and visitors for over 185 years!
