Way back in October before my dad had his accident, C & I spent a couple of days in Indianapolis for a getaway.  Indy was a city in easy driving distance for us that we had never been to so we hit the road to see the sights.  The first day we went to Edinburgh, Indiana to do a little shopping at the Premium Outlets and, let me tell you, it was the BEST outlet mall we had ever been to.  We found lots of bargains and only went in about 10% of the stores there before we ran out of time.  I would love to go back this spring to shop there again.

We spent the night in Edinburgh and headed to Indy the next morning after going back to the mall for a few minutes.  Along the way, we stopped and ate at Jimmy Buffett’s Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant.

This is a chain restaurant, but not one in our normal area and it was good.  We both got cheeseburgers and fries.  The meal was tasty, but if we go back I would like to go to a couple of local eateries instead of a chain.  Maybe next time.  One of the main reasons we chose Indy was to go their zoo and aquarium located inside the zoo.  Unfortunately, it rained all day long while we were there, but we still enjoyed the zoo. The aquarium part is pretty small except the dolphin exhibit.  The underwater dome was awesome!  The next pics will show the zoo highlights.

Indy has a great skyline even in the rain.  We did a drive-by of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but since there wasn’t a race we couldn’t get a very good view.

The attraction that I most wanted to see was Monument Circle and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument so we braved the rainy weather and downtown traffic to go. If you are in the Indy area, I highly recommend visiting this area of downtown.  There are several shops and restaurants that I would love to go back and visit if we have a chance to.  It is also just down the street from the arena where the Indiana Pacers play.
