The Southern Indiana Visitor Center had 400 visitors in September. What did they ask? Where were they from, and why were they here?

The most common questions asked:

  • Where is a good place to eat?
  • How do you get to the Big Four Walking Bridge?

What are visitors looking for at the Visitor Center?

Visitors most frequently request maps for the region. We still have a heavy demand for Southern Indiana maps.  Most want to see street maps of Jeffersonville, Clarksville, and New Albany. Visitors also ask for maps of downtown Jeffersonville’s historic district.
