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.
Located in Westfield, the Rail Epicurean is housed in a converted multi-level barn and has a cool, laid-back vibe. I’m not exactly how I first found out about Rail Epicurean, but I’m definitely glad that I did.
A colleague at work mentioned Tina’s Tea Room as a good place for a quiet lunch, which led me here a little after noon on a Friday. As many times as I’ve driven by the tea house on Main Street in Carmel, I hadn’t paid enough attention to realize it was a restaurant and not someone’s home.
