Ohio River Scenic Highway

The Ohio River Scenic Byway runs 967 miles through three states. With 303 beautiful miles in Indiana, a stay in Vevay makes the perfect westbound stopover before traversing this historic state, or as an eastbound stay prior to entering the Ohio portion. It is a charming historic town along the Scenic Byway that offers antiques, artisans, relaxing B&Bs, quaint restaurants, and beautiful views of the river. Make it a relaxing historic tour, an exhilarating adventure, or something in between.

The history-rich Ohio River Scenic Byway meanders along the banks of its namesake, hugging its shoreline and offering almost continuous views of this watercourse. The history of the Ohio River is found both in rural landscapes and quaint river communities, covering periods from Native American habitation through western settlement, affecting transportation patterns and industrialization.

The Ohio River Scenic Byway is a gateway to adventure. Discover antique shops, artist studios, and farm markets. Paddle a canoe, explore a cave, camp under the stars. Tour stately mansions, sample artisan wines, get lucky at a casino, or stay in a bed & breakfast inn. With 303 miles of scenic roadway to explore in Indiana, a journey along the river and into the heartland of the country will be an adventure.

From west to east, starting on the Ilinois-Indiana border, travel on SR-62. After crossing Interstate 164, take SR-66 south and east as it meanders across the state through Tell City and Hoosier National Forest to SR-66. At Sulphur, take SR-62 east to Louisville, then north to Madison. In Madison, take SR-56 east until it becomes SR-156 (it will turn back into SR-56). At Aurora, SR-56 becomes Highway 50. Follow Highway 50 to the state line, where the Indiana portion of the byway ends and the Ohio portion begins.
