Vincennes University and the Vincennes community provide the perfect opportunity to jump right into old meets new. Our community prides itself on the history that has made Vincennes a must-do stop on the historic trail. But, don’t stop there. Our city offers many options perfect for you as you enjoy your time on the VU Campus.

Just some of the activities your conference, event, or camp enrichment participants can enjoy include:

  • Shopping! Many quaint shops along historic Main Street as well as other parts of town that you will not find anywhere else. From antiques to a farmers market to many arts and crafts venues!
  • Celebrating the Arts! Tickle your funny bone with the Red Skelton Interactive Museum right here on the VU campus, visit the many art museums as well as the Indiana Military Museum. Old Town Players comedy and theatre troop is also here.
  • Historic Neighborhoods and Historic Sites – Step back into history as you experience George Rogers Clark at the Memorial Grounds and William Henry Harrison’s Northwest Territory home, plus much much more.
  • Outdoor Activities – Parks that will amaze, a picturesque River Walk and our new Rainbow Beach and Splash Pads. Certainly something for everyone!
