Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Bloomington Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Bloomington, IN discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Bloomington hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Indiana University is also the largest employer in Bloomington, with 7,000 employees. Other major employers include Cook Group Inc., a medical device manufacturer, Monroe County Schools, and Baxter Healthcare Pharmaceuticals. The proximity of the IU School of Medicine makes it a hub for developments in the health-care field.

Outside of the university, Bloomington stands on its own as a great destination for recreation and the outdoors. Runners will enjoy the B-Line trail -- a three-mile trek through downtown Bloomington -- or the more family friendly Bryan Park. There are also plenty of rivers, lakes, and streams in the Hoosier National Forest where you can kayak or cast your line.

When to Visit Bloomington, IN

The best time to visit Bloomington is the fall. The leaves are starting to change, and the summer heat is starting to break into cool fall breezes. Fall is also football season, which pulls IU fans from all over the state to cheer on the home team and tailgate through the weekend. Hotel rooms will get booked quickly during this time -- especially when a competitive rival is in town -- so be sure to choose your weekends and book far ahead of your visit.

During the summer, Bloomington takes on a small-town feel as many students go home for the school break, reducing the overall population. Despite this, summer is a popular time for visitors. Many families come to Bloomington to enjoy recreational activities and get away from Indianapolis and Fort Wayne. Expect a different type of visitor in the summer -- one with a family who's looking to relax.

Winters can be quite brutal in Indiana, especially for visitors who aren't adjusted to the cold and snow. If you're unfamiliar with driving in the snow, we recommend traveling by taxi or public transportation. Despite the cold, many people still visit Bloomington to catch basketball games and attend medical conferences. In fact, almost 2 million people visit Bloomington each year, accounting for $326 million in revenue and providing 4,163 jobs to Monroe County.

For a college visit, try to book your hotel in the spring -- from March through April. Many prospective students tour IU around this time, and you or your child can take campus tours and meet with faculty and staff. By now, most of the snow should have melted, and you can walk around the campus and take in newly blooming flowers and budding trees.

If you're willing to drive 10-15 miles outside of Bloomington, there are two beautifully scenic hotels awaiting you. These are ideal for visitors who are looking to get out into the countryside and experience the beauty of Indiana, not just its universities. The Fourwinds Resort & Marina boasts excellent reviews as a weekend getaway. Guests can book rooms facing the lake, and wake up to the sunrise over the water.

This hotel is perfect for relaxation, with both an indoor and outdoor pool and tennis courts on site.

The Artists Colony Inn & Restaurant is another top choice for a unique getaway. This B&B offers free breakfast and help with booking tours or tickets to nearby attractions.

Enjoy the Food and Culture of Bloomington, IN

If you're looking to experience the culture of Southern Indiana, look no further than Bloomington. For music, visit the African American Arts Institute, located inside the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center. There are three ensembles that call this center home, and if you're able to catch at least one when you're in Bloomington, consider yourself lucky.

Alternatively, the Bloomington PRIDE Film Festival runs for three days in January and February. Choose from a list of local and national indie films that highlight the LGBTQ community and its history. Even if you're not in Bloomington during the festival, it's still worth checking out the Buskirk-Chumley Theater, one of the busiest community theaters in the country. This 88-year old theater highlights work from more than 50 local organizations throughout the year.

Microbreweries are also thriving in this college town, as there are plenty of young people to sample their wares and keep the brewing economy buzzing. Stop by Bloomington Brewing Company or the Upland Brewpub for a beer. If you're into wine, relax with samples from the Butler Winery and Vineyard. If you're feeling brave, stop by Cardinal Spirits to try some local craft spirits, including whiskey, vodka, and gin.

Wherever you decide to stay in Bloomington, plenty of locals will offer advice on where to eat, what to see, and who to cheer for (always the Hoosiers). However, where you stay is an easy answer. Whichever hotel you decided to book for your getaway, you're sure to be greeted with a smile and welcoming hello.
