It's great for an afternoon or a leisurely days drive. Head south one way, like through Boone Grove take the back roads to Kouts, maybe stop along the Kankakee River. Head back through the eastern part of Porter County. Farms, fields, PUD's (Planned Unit Development, i.e., sprawl) and various cemetaries mark the land from the people who built this community and are still building.
See my Kouts page for places to eat and things to do.
