Travel Tips for Indianapolis

Running Through Town

by staindesign

We have a really great trail here. It runs from 10th St. to 96th St. It is really nice because much of the trail is through wooded area and you can get off the trail in many areas throughout the city. It runs North to South, so you can use it to travel with out your car. In the summer it can get really busy! Shoulder to Shoulder busy! I have even seen people using it in the winter. So over all it is a nice place to exercise and people watch! There are some really intense people that use the trail, bikers and runners. You need to look out for them because they will run you over. They always yell "left", which means get over to the right, and out of their way. I sort of hate that, because I am definitely slower and why should I move because they want to go 100mph?

Columbus, Indiana Chooses to be Different

by deecat

By now you must be asking, "Why spend so much time on Columbus, Indiana when this is an Indianapolis page? Most visitors are touring Indianapolis when they are told not to miss Columbus. Thus, I'm continuing the tradition of capturing those who visit Indiana's Capitol city, encouraging them to see this marvel of a town.

It is true that Columbus is an unlikely place for architectural masterpieces. Its just a southern Indiana town that is divided by rivers and is surrounded by cornfields.

It began with the First Christian Church designed by Eliel Saarinen, a Finnish architect as a request from the congregation. Now that was back in 1942, and the church now anchors a city block. But it was the leadership of J. Irwin Miller of Cummins Engine Foundation, who spearheaded this remarkable feat by offering to pay the architectural fees for the design of a public school. He then extended the offer for all public buildings if the architects were selected from a foundation list. I saw, "WOW!" to that.

Today, there are more than 50 public and private buildings designed by notable architects.

The photograph is of the St. Peter's Lutheran Church that has a copper-clad roof and a 186-foot steeple!

There's another famous "spire" in Columbus, (North Christian Church/1964 at 850 Tipton Lane), and it was designed by Eliel Saarinen's son, Eero, and it has a 192-foot spire, the tallest in the city.

Mill Race Park is built along a flood plain, and it was designed to withstand the flooding. The park has an 84-foot tower and an amphitheater that seats 500. There are walking trails and a covered bridge at the park also. So, they extend the beauty of the town outward.

I only wish more small cities and towns would have the courage to do the same.

A french cafe in Broadripple

by staindesign about Petite Chou

This place recently opened up, it is an extension of the 4 other locations in the city. They are all fairly similar, but each have their own flair. There is a huge outside patio, and when I eat here with friends I get the feeling like i'm in Paris or some European city eatting a wonderful meal while people watching. Right now the weather is cooling down since it is fall and the patio is perfect. The inside of the restaurant is fairly small, but quite elegant. I was told that they will be inclosing the patio for the winter, so that their seating won't diminish. I've only eatten there during the week days, but I have heard that the weekend it is extremely busy and the service is sort of bad. My favorite thing is the potato leek soup! It is amazing, careful, but it is very very hot. It is served with oven dried baguette and perfectly seasoned. Everything else is great, but this is the topper for me!

South Side of the Monument

by grkboiler

Each side of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument represents something different. The sculptor for all 4 sides was Rudolf Schwarz of Germany.

The south side represents the Infantry (left) and Cavalry (right) and has a plaque commemorating the Civil War and the Spanish-American War.

The plaque reads:

126 Regiments Infantry 175772
13 Regiments Cavalry 21605
1 Regiment Artillery 3839

5 Regiments Infantry 6693
2 Colored Companies Infantry 219

Indiana History - FREE

by gkitzmil

This is not a museum so there is no admission charge. YET, they USUALLY have exhibits and a bookstore. NOTE: During 2009 exhibits are closed awaiting a grand revision for 2010!!

There is a great library, though, for research purposes. The building is quite pretty.

Also, it is located in the canal district on the canal so it begs for you to take a nice walk on a sunny day.
