Over the few days I was at Clifty Falls SRA in Indiana (on the Ohio River), I made several trips to the riverfront (on both sides of the river). Madison has a beautiful river walk with plenty of parking, benches and views.
Madison, Indiana is the home of the Madison Regatta, an Unlimited hydroplane boat race held annually on Independence Day weekend on the Ohio River in Madison, Indiana. Madison has hosted the Madison Regatta annually since 1951, although the race was also contested in the 1930s. The race inspired a Hollywood motion picture released in 2005, titled Madison which starred actor Jim Caviezel.
