If you’re from the Indianapolis area, no doubt you’re very familiar with Eagle Creek Park, Broad Ripple Park or Fort Harrison State Park. But, if you’re far from these major parks, like I am now, or you just don’t want to pay a fee to enjoy some outdoor time for a few hours, there are dozens of great smaller parks in Indianapolis and the surrounding area to enjoy free of charge! Here are some of my faves:
It’s fall again, and that means it’s time for pumpkins, sunflowers, apples, corn mazes, and hayrides, all of which you can find at Tuttle Orchards in Greenfield.
After seeing endless photos on Instagram of all of the amazing entrees Taxman produces, I just had to check this place out! I get the feeling that this will be a popular spot once people catch on to how cool of a place it is, so I wanted to get in while it was still not on the radar for a lot of people yet.
The Covered Bridge Festival is an event that I’ve been meaning to attend for years, and always seem to miss it. This year, I made a point to finally check it out and spent a few hours on an unusually warm October afternoon walking around the festival area in Bridgeton.
A visit to Indianapolis Home-a-Rama has become an annual event and is a great way to see beautiful homes and get inspiration for design and decor for your own space. Usually held in the Westfield area, the Home-a-Rama features a number of custom-built homes that are open to view. This year’s Home-a-Rama was held in The Lakes at Grassy Branch in Westfield and featured a total of 5 houses. Tickets to the event ran $15 – $18.
