Mural Hunting

Like many communities, we have murals popping up all over the city!  

They're so pretty and unique and we have had so much fun hunting for them this Summer.  

It's been an easy, free activity that our whole family has enjoyed.  It started when I hosted a mural hunting challenge with my local mom's group.  It was really cool to drive around to find them.  Some are located in spots with several in a row and easy to walk to.  Others are more of a drive.  We broke up our mural hunting adventures into several days.  The kids loved it!  I'd drive (obviously) and they would keep their eyes peeled for murals.

We'd highly recommend going to see all of them in person if you're local even if you don't feel like snapping a picture with each one.  They're beautiful and we are lucky to have so many unique art pieces on display in our area.

All of these murals are located in and around Terre Haute, Indiana.

 This Terre Haute postcard is brand new!  It's in the alley around the corner from JFord's downtown.

@Terre Haute Brewing Company

@Java Haute drive thru

@ Deming Park on the train garage

Drive Down Wabash Ave and you'll see these murals!

Terre Haute: Birthplace of the Coca-Cola Contour Bottle (&Fletcher and Leo!!)

This one is a bit of a mystery.  It showed up on the side of a building that experienced a large fire earlier this year.  My kids crack up every time they see it so it was fun to check it out up close.

@ Indiana State University

Head North up to the 12 Points area and you'll find several beautiful murals.

And if you're up for a short drive, head 20 minutes east of Terre Haute to Brazil, IL.  There are lots of murals around the city, too.  We found a really great alley filled with 10+ different murals all in a row.  The kids loved checking out these interactive murals.


Do you have murals in your city??  If you do, you should definitely go and check them out!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  See you back here next week.

  1. Wow! This is such a fun post and such a fun idea! I've noticed murals popping up around here too, but I bet there are more than I realize. My two favorites you found are the covered bridge (classic Indiana!) and the steps painted like books. So creative!

  2. What a cool idea! You’ve got an amazing variety in your city. I love the book steps so much!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
