Greenfield Day Trips and Excursions

Bluespring Caverns: This is one of the best day trips from Greenfield you could plan for the entire family. Take a fascinating tour on a river 100 feet below ground and marvel as your guide maneuvers your boat around huge stalagmites that have decorated the placid and moody Mist’ry River for centuries before man discovered them. Bedford, Indiana is a charming Midwest town in South Indiana, about 100 miles southwest of Greenfield. The Caverns are just outside of town, as is the magnificent Hoosier National Forest, also well worth seeing.

Mooresville, Indiana: Have you got a basketball-lover in your family? What Hoosier family doesn’t? The Academy of Hoosier Heritage is a fun destination in Mooresville, and a place any basketball fan really should see at least once. In it, you will find a hometown repository of memorabilia in tribute to Mooresville’s most famous son, the legendary coach and player, John Wooden. Other fun Mooresville attractions include the Family Aquatic Center inside Pioneer Park, and the authentic Cajun cooking at Zydeco’s Restaurant. You might even hit their annual crawfish eating contest! Mooresville is only about an hour’s drive southwest of Greenfield.
