Travel Tips for Indianapolis

Indiana Time Zone

by sticki

Unlike the rest of the world, most (but not all) of Indiana never changes their clocks. That's right, no daylight savings time. So half the year (summer) is spent on Central Time, the other half (winter) on Eastern Time. I never did daylight savings until I lived in England, where they thought it was just plain nutty that there would be a part of a state that just refused to change time. And it probably is. But oh well.

Lebanon Courthouse (Boone County)

by Toughluck

While I don't know for sure, most 'Boone' names west of the appalachian mountains are for Daniel Boone. Might not, but possible.

If you're heading to Indy from up north or going that way as you're leaving Indy, you'll pass Lebanon. It's a major lodging and food stop a half hour to 45 minutes north on I-65. A few antique stores and a county courthouse. Indiana is known for it's square courthouses with central towers. Each is different, but they are alot alike. Some have lost the towers, many still have them. Some have domed tops, others are clock towers or steeples or flat topped. Lebanon is a domed tower.

The Lebanon VT site doesn't have any tips (11/2007) but it does have a list of hotels (no ratings though). For a sample of County Courthouses, see my Courthouse travelogue

Palomino's

by djramey about Palomino's

The lack of success this store has I believe sits in the kitchen, but not neccessarily with the chefs of the respective night. This menu, while having potential to be interesting and exciting, does not approach the level one would expect for both price and downtown dining. In a downtown restaurant taste is just as important as originality, and while Palomino's has originality the taste is on par with much lower level spots in the surrounding area.

I ordered the Tiger Shrimp starter and complimented it with Prawn Tortallini. The prawns were served too hot and I was forced to wait for them to cool, this should not have happened. The platting is an obvious push for Palomino's, but it has no flair or design. The service was fantastic from host to server. I may have to try this store again, but right now it is not recommended. As mentioned above, the Tiger Shrimp starter was delicious. Served with greens, shrimp and toasted bread, it comes to your table hot and ready to be eaten.

Eiteljorg Museum of American...

Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians & Western Art
Great children's section that has hands-on actitivies for children to learn about indian life. At the time I visited, they had a photo exhibit on people with Central American heritage. It was very good. They also have a section on Western paintings.

Take a Walk Through History at Lockerbie Square

by deecat

See my Lockerbie Square Travelogue for more photos and information

On a sunny Sunday afternoon in April of 2005, Jill and I did a self-guided tour of Lockerbie Square before taking a guided tour of the Riley Home in the area.

This area is quite interesting because it is an eclectic mix of Queen Anne and Italianate, Federal, and Vernacular Cottages. From seeing this area, I am convinced that Indianapolis has made a firm commitment to preserving its historic past.

Lockerbie Square is a residential district that was largely settled by German immigrants during the Civil War Boom. It was originally a working and middle class neighborhood.

Indiana's poet, James Whitcomb Riley was inspired by the arching trees and flickering gaslights on Lockerbie Street, and he wrote:
"Such a dear little street it is
nestled away from the noise of the city
and heat of the day
In cool shady coverts of whispering trees."

All the literature implies that Lockerbie Square is one of the country's great examples of "Victorian restorations".

It was in the 1970s that Lockerbie Square saw a rebirth. The area had become a victim to urban blight and neglect. A group of dedicated people called "urban pioneers" began this neighborhood revitalization, and they were boosted by Lockerbie Square being included in the 1973 National Register of Historic Places.

The really wonderful thing about this area besides the incredible architecture is that its location is just a walk from the city's core. We were quite impressed with it all.
