As lifelong Hautians (or is it “Hauteans”?), we know what it’s like to wish that Terre Haute felt more like a big city. We’ve envied the restaurants, culture, and music of Bloomington. We’ve driven to Indianapolis for shopping and shows. When friends visit from other countries and states, we’ve taken them to do tourist things in Chicago.
But you know what? Terre Haute has come a long way since I (Rachael) was born here in the 80s! And we are genuinely EXCITED to raise our kids here.
With your help, we hope to use this site to help make people proud to live in The Haute.
Haute Happenings began in December 2013, and it has been tremendously well-received. It exists simply to bring positive publicity to Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley, and to help families realize how much Terre Haute has to offer. (There’s no “Haute Hating” on Haute Happenings!)
I (Rachael) have been writing professionally (on a family travel blog) for almost two years. I was an English major at ISU and have since worked for a radio station and a newspaper, done professional copy-editing (which makes the typos I find in my own writing all the more painful!), and worked hard to understand the basics of photography and photo editing. Nate is gainfully employed, which allows me to spend time on the blogs while our two young girls nap.
You will often see our family eating downtown, biking through traffic (we can’t wait for more Terre Haute bike lanes!), or finding rocks to add to our four-year-old’s rock collection.
