Explore Indiana with a Car Rental in Hobart

Hobart is a wonderful city located in Lake County, Indiana, United States of America. Although the name of it is Hobart, the pronunciation is the same as for Hobert, not for Hobart as many tourists think. The city has a population of almost 30.000 people, according to a recent study. Dates from the same study say that Hobart has an area of 26.7 square miles. The founder of the city is George Earle, who bought land from a Native American tribe, created Lake George and named the settlement Hobart in honor of his brother. He was an English immigrant and his brother never came to the United States to see the town bearing his name.
