The Destination
Lovely covered bridges made with woven wooden tresses arch across Parke County's rivers and ravines. Known as the "Covered Bridge Capital of the World," this Indiana township mirrors another era with its stone mills, historic schoolhouses, and thriving Amish community. Here, shoppers will find unique treasures handcrafted by local artisans, as well as guided tours of orchards and farms with back-to-basics experiences like apple picking and tapping trees for maple syrup.

The Digs
What served as the Parke County jail for nearly 120 years, from 1879 to 1998, has been renovated and converted into Rockville's most unusual hotel, the Old Jail Inn Parke County. Eight of the original cells have been made over into whimsical prison-themed suites, while the original drunk tank downstairs is now home to Drunk Tank Winery, where you'll get a bottle of wine to keep you company during your short sentence. Unlike its original occupants, you'll be treated to a delicious breakfast the next morning at the Jailhouse Cafe next door.

Each of five 7' x 7' Cell Block Rooms features original jail bars with black curtains and shares a common bathroom with other inmates—er, guests. EllaTina's Room and Ruth's Room offer a bit more charm, as they're inspired by the innkeepers' grandmothers. Both rooms, which share a bathroom, face the town square and are appointed with a queen-size pillow-top bed and a sitting area with futon. Each of two themed Holding Suites (Harley Davidson and Bonnie & Clyde) offer private bathrooms, a queen-size pillow-top bed, and a bunk bed.

  • "Not only can you hang out in the drunk tank, but you can go inside the old tunnel that once led to the courthouse across the street."
