In faraway hills of the southern side of Indiana and on the shores of the Ohio River which separates Kentucky and Indiana is a little nest called Madison.
The town is a small one which is packed with gorgeous scenery that consists of hills, valleys, and the Ohio River’s gorgeous scapes. Madison County is a beautiful destination that tourists love the most in all of Indiana. Several people even pick the place to be their honeymoon destination for the sights that the region offers. However, don’t judge this little town by just its size. It is far from quiet and no one of the sleepy dead cities that offer everyday sights of hills. The place offers activities that are far beyond its size, and the grandeur of these events are spellbinding. In fact, sailors have probably heard of the Madison Regatta, which the place is known for.
There are hundreds of people from all over the world who come to the little town during the weekend of the 4th of July to watch a glimpse of boats and yachts take-off of the Regatta. Some of the fastest boats in the world are featured at the event that goes across the Ohio River for the races. For over a hundred years, the racing Regatta of Madison has been well-known. However, over the last few years, the popularity seems to have skyrocketed because of a new tradition that the county has offered.
