Uplands to Anywhere

The Uplands are perfectly located for every whimsical excursion, studious retreat, and corporate collaboration in the Midwest. We combine Hoosier hospitality with world-class access.

Getting Here

At the intersection between Indianapolis, Cincinnati, and St. Louis, the rolling hills and forests of the Uplands beckon any roadfarers to pause and admire this beautiful place we call home.

By Car

  • Louisville: From I-65 north, take exit 7 for State Road 60 west towards Salem, the gem of Washington County.
  • Cincinnati: Take exit 16 off I-275 onto State Road 50 west and cruise all the way to Lawrence County’s main city of Bedford.
  • EVANSVILLE: Follow I-69 and drive near the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC), the world's third largest naval base.
  • Indianapolis: Follow I-65 south to State Road 46 west toward Nashville and the heart of Brown County. Or, take I-465 to State Road 37 south for a fast-track to Bloomington.

By plane

Fly in and out of the Indianapolis International Airport (IND) in Marion County as a major hub for national and international air travel. Then head south by car for access to all the magnificence the Uplands has to offer. Headed to our more southern counties? Consider flying in and out of nearby Louisville International Airport (SDF).
