Indianapolis, Indiana

 

We really enjoyed our visit to Indianapolis, Indiana.  It really surprised us.  We camped at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.  It was a great place to stay because of its central location.  We toured the state Capitol building with a class of fourth grade students.  The public areas of the Capitol were beautiful.  It was completed in 1888 and cost $1.8 million.  The stained glass of the dome came alive in the sunlight.  It was designed by Edwin May in the Italian Renaissance style.  Much of the building is made of Indiana limestone.  The House and Senate chambers were both lacking in historical style.  We went to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway home of the Indy 500 car race.  We took a ride around the track in a bus, toured the museum and saw a film of the history of Indy.  Marcus and his dad had many mechanical discussions.  One of the best parts of our stay was the Monon Bike Trail.  We stayed two extra days just to utilize this shady paved trail.  Marcus and Caroline rode almost 20 miles on their own bikes over the time we were there and we rode 22 miles on our tandem bikes.  We rode through commercial districts and residential neighborhoods.  We stopped for lunch in Broad Ripple on two different occasions.
