One Southern Indiana lake will once again offer sunset and fall foliage wine cruises in 2023 that you might want to add to your bucket list this year.

Most people don't associate cruises with Indiana. We aren't surrounded by any oceans, so the two typically don't go hand-in-hand. However, that isn't the case at Patoka Lake. Granted, it's not a seven-day cruise, but it's a cruise nonetheless...with wine.

Patoka Lake is the second-largest reservoir in the U.S. state of Indiana. It spans three different counties in Southern Indiana. The lake is beautiful to swim, boat, camp, fish, and more. One cool thing Patoka Lake offers during the summer is a nice date night or girls' night out with a sunset wine cruise.
