I was looking forward to my trip to Indianapolis for Eventology and the time I had with my dear friends before the conference began. I really didn’t give the city itself much thought. When traveling to a new place I refer to The New York Times 36 hours series so I can plan my time wisely. Their information was great, the shrimp cocktail was good and Chocolate Café did not disappoint. However, as usual, there were a few additional finds, I’d recommend.
The Children’s Museum was one of the best of it’s kind.
We walked the canal to Creation Cafe for lunch. It was a beautiful day, so we sat outside, but the interior was artful and interesting. The menu had many unique and delicious options. If you are looking for something more upscale, Euphoria is upstairs.
After lunch April, our amazing tour guide, led us on foot to some of the city’s best wedding venues. We were all impressed by the Indian State Museum and the newly renovated Public Library.
The Flying Cupcake is the sweetest shop in town, the branding is phenomenal, the store front is whimsical and exactly what one would want and expect from a cupcakery. The red velvet cupcakes were A+. Our timing was perfect, too. We were served immediately and as we left with treats in hand, people were lined up out the door waiting to get their cupcakes.
Thanks to Kimberly for making the long drive with AKC Squared. Waking up to a three year old’s cock-a-doodle-doo is much preferred to my iPhone alarm.
Thanks to April, my new Indianapolis friend, her inside tour and local knowledge was certainly appreciated. Last but not least thanks to Aletha and Lindsey for being my cupcake connoisseur cohorts.
Have you been pleasantly surprised by any new cities you’ve discovered recently? I plan to recap the professional value of my trip in future posts.
