Move your journey into the heart of town. Valparaiso's Central Park Plaza has year-round outdoor fun. In summer, explore the farmers market or kick back while the kids play in the splash pad. Warm evenings also mean outdoor concerts, movies nights on the lawn and a number of great events. Lace up your ice skates in winter when the pavilion is an outdoor skating rink. And don't miss the best selfie photo spot in town - the bench with the statue of popcorn king Orville Redenbacher!
