Travel Tips for Indianapolis

Oldest "Working" Church: Christ Church Cathedral

by deecat

You cannot miss seeing this English Gothic style church that sits on Monument Circle in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. It is the last of five churches that were on Monument Circle; the other four churches sold their very valuable real estate to builders. The builders put up modern high-rise buildings. It's mighty refreshing to see the oldest church in the city still thriving.

This church is called The Christ Church Cathedral. No, it is not Catholic; instead, it is Episcopal. An Irishman named William Tinsley designed it. The original church was established in 1837, but this present building on Cathedral Monument Circle was built between 1857-1860, depending on whom you read.

The church remained unchanged until 1900, and then a major redecorating and rebuilding happened. In 1927 and 1953 more remodeling occurred.

In 1954, Christ Church became the Pro-Cathedral of the Diocese of Indianapolis. The church was renovated in the lower level and then a major underground addition was done that remarkably extended under the lawn and the brick sidewalk of Monument Circle and Meridian Street...talk about using every inch of space! They also put on a new slate roof that was just like the patterns and designs of the original.

The church got two new organs and so more accomodations had to be made.The interior has wooden trusses and stained glass windows by Tiffany. The exterior uses three limestones, all quarried in Indiana. The Christ Church Cathedral is not a large church; rather, it denotes a warm, cozy charm. Being right in the heart of the city, it is passed by literally thousands each week. What a wonderful place to stop for reflection.

Bloomington, IN -- think Indiana if flat with cornfields? Not around Bloomington. The Home of Indiana University, Bloomington is culturally diverse with Thai, Indian, Mongolian, Eretrian, etc. restaurants but also Nick's, a great American bar and Indiana Univerity tradition. Visit the home of one of the World's best known Schools of Music, with Opera, Symphony, Jazz, and more. Want to stay? MANY motels and hotels and many restaurants. AND the geography is scenic with many hills and woods. One of the country's most beautiful University campuses!

Some Guys Pizza Pasta Grill

by Boozoo about Some Guys Pizza Pasta Grill

Anti-pasta salad! MMM mmm! They also serve great Italian dishes and delicious gourmet pizzas from wood-fire ovens. It looks like a little pizza outlet from the outside, but once you get in, you find out just how deceiving looks can be.

Childrens' Museum - the...

by gkitzmil

Childrens' Museum - the WORLD's largest (yes, I said World's!!) Have kids, Grandkids, Nieces or nephews? Bring them to Indianapolis and spend a day in this museum. Second to none for kids and only to to the Smithsonian for collection this is truly amazing and don't forget to see the Cinedome film projected by IMAX equipment. ASK how to get there - it is north of the city center and you'll need to either drive or take a North Meridian bus.
World's largest AND very experience oriented

Crown Hill Cemetery In Indianapolis, Indiana

by deecat

Crown Hill Cemetery is one of the largest cemeteries in the United states with several lovely High Victorian Structures on its park-lined grounds. I found the Gothic Gateway (see photo) particularly handsome. It was designed by Indianapolis architect, Adolf Scherrer. He also designed the Romanesque Revival Waiting Station (see Travelogue).

Many famous people are buried here such as President Benjamin Harrison; 3 Vice-presidents, Charles Fairbanks, Thomas Hendricks, and Marshall Thomas; Col Eli Lilly; Indiana Civil War Governor, Oliver Morton; Richard Gatling who invented the Gatling machine gun; James Whitcomb Riley, famous Hoosier poet; Booth Tarkington, author; and John Dillinger, bank robber.

Jill and I took a guided tour of this 200-year-old cemetery one beautiful Sunday afternoon in April, 2005. It's so large that it is on both sides of 38th Street with a crossing via a tunnel.

It's name comes from the actual hill crown that rises to the highest point in the cemetery and the county! That is where James Whitcomb Riley is buried in the middle of this crown. It is a place with grand vistas.

There's an orphans' lot and a Confederate soldiers' lot as well as a huge area for Union soldiers.

Our tour was called the "Heritage" and is the most popular of all the tours. It presented the history of the cemetery and took us to interesting people's graves. We saw a variety of monuments and statues. It lasted about one hour and forty-five minutes and covered over one mile. It cost $5.00.

This cemetery has a Peace Chapel, Garden Mausoleums, and the new Pine Mausoleum. We saw the National Cemetery (within the Crown Hill Cemetery) that is dedicated to those who served the country.

Almost 200,00 citizens are buried here. Of all the things I saw in Indianapolis, The Crown Hill Cemetery had the greatest impact on me personally.
