Larry in the Uplands

Hidden vineyards, farm-to-table hotspots, state parks with breathtaking views, and exciting city attractions. The Indiana Uplands has adventures for everyone. Join Larry Pejeau on the road as he explores home-grown Hoosier hospitality and diverse cultural experiences throughout our thriving region.

An Indiana Uplander by Choice

I wandered into the Indiana Uplands region by chance. I became a Hoosier by choice.

The topography, cultural history, friendly neighbors, and rugged individualism found over every hill and valley drew us into this incredible region. My wife and I found a home, raised a family, ran our businesses, and plugged into the community. Now, I am continuing my journey in the Indiana Uplands to share the unique places, people, and cultural activities that make our region incredible.
