Syracuse, Indiana: Lakefront Living in Northern Indiana
You’re never far from the waterfront in Syracuse—the town boasts seven lakes, including the largest natural lake in the state, Lake Wawasee. The 3,500-acre lake is a popular destination all year long. When the lake freezes over, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and ice boating are popular pastimes. Warm-weather activities include swimming and boating (fishing boats, pontoon boats, and jet skis are available to rent at the lake).
Syracuse is also home to a thriving artistic community. Downtown Syracuse—a charming community on the shores of Syracuse Lake—is lined with numerous galleries and shops selling locally made artwork and crafts.
