Travel Tips for Indianapolis

"Carousel Wishes & Dreams"

by deecat

Jill and I discovered some little known information about the popular hand-carved Carousel at the Indianapolis Children's Museum

While staying at Boone Dock on the River, a bed & breakfast near Broad Ripple area, the owner, Lynn Boone, shared a wonderful childhood experience with us one morning during our daily breakfast conversations.

At one time, at least 40 years ago, the Museum's Carousel was located in Broad Ripple at the park. A popular man ran the Carousel, and Lynn and her best friend went there daily during the summer to ride it and to talk to the man, who became their friend. The man's wife wanted him to help her with some chore, and he asked Lynn if she would run the Carousel for him while he was momentarily gone. He had taught the girls how to run it. She was so thrilled. She stood in the middle and moved the handles as she was taught, but first, she had to collect the children's tickets.

While relating this fond memory, we could tell it had been a very important moment in her life. She also told us that when the Carnival closed down, they took the Carousel apart piece by piece, labeled it, and stored it away. All these years later, they put it back together, and each day another generation of Indianapolis children are thrilled to climb atop a horse, a tiger, or a giraffe to experience the "wonder of the Carousel and the magic of imagination". But, for Lynn, a dream became a reality.

The National Road

by Toughluck

The National Road was the nation’s first federally funded highway. It connected Maryland to the western interior in Illinois. Conceived by George Washington, it became a reality in 1806 during Thomas Jefferson’s administration.

The road reached Indiana in 1827. It stretch across Indiana from Richmond to Terre Haute by 1834. Initially, all that was done was to clear a dirt path with trees cut low enough for Conestoga wagons to ride over them. Since it's initial construction, it has changed often. Railroads were built, automobiles were invented and I-70 was constructed.

Doggys like cookies too!

by staindesign about 3 dog bakery

So if you are a dog lover like me, you have to check this place out. It is on Mass Ave. and it is right next to Silver in the City. There isn't much on the outside, but inside it is so cool. It actually smells good enough to eat for yourself (humans). They also have everything for your pet; clothes, beds, food, and special bakery goodies! The case with the items looks so cute. The cookies and cakes are in the shape of dog bones and they have puppy chocolate covered things, things with what seems to be frosting. And it is approved by my dog Chaco. He loves the goodies!

Extra Bonus: Your pet is allowed in the store! Chaco's favorite thing is the puppy truffles! The truffles are $1 each!

The zoo

by FoxWMulder

The Indianpolis zoo is a neat place to go, kids or not. It is clean, with plenty to do inside, though I'm not exactly a connaiseur of zoos. (doubt I spelled that right.) There is a cafeteria, playground and gift shop in addition to the animals.

Indiana State Capitol

by deecat

To schedule a tour, call (317)233-5293

The Indiana State Capitol is a beautiful building, the historic treasure of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana.

Competition for the design of the new State House was won by an Indianapolis architect, Edwin May. He made the building to be shaped like a Greek cross with a central dome and rotunda. The main floor is built 14 feet above ground level. The building is where the governor, the House of Representatives (east side), and the Senate (west side) do business as well as the Indiana Supreme Court (north end).

The interior is in the Italian Renaissance style. Indiana materials such as Indiana Oak, maple, and walnut are used in the building.
Skylights bring in natural lighting. The Atrium skylights brighten the north and south wings. The Art Glass inner dome, in blue tones, is suspended below a skylight.

The exterior of the building is Corinthian style design. Indiana materials are used here, too. Oolitic limestone quarried from Monroe, Lawrence, & Owen counties; foundation limestone from Greensburg & North Vernon quarries; cornerstone limestone from Spencer, Indiana. So, the building is certainly representative of Indiana.

Many "blotched" changes happened in the first 100 years so in 1988, an eleven million dollar renovation and restoration took place to bring back its original elegance. The biggest project with the best results (I think) was removing three layers of paint and doing "four acres of plaster hand stenciling". The results are breathtaking.
The Indiana Supreme Court courtroom did not have to be restored because it has never changed.

I must say that this revitalized Capitol Building called the "State House" represents nineteenth-century grandeur with the inner workings of a twenty-first-century.
