Make a long weekend out of your stay
Fall is in full gear in Central Indiana and there’s tons to do and see this time of the year. Consider extending your stay a few days after Best Practices and enjoying a long weekend in the area. Here are some of the local highlights:
carmel Arts & design district
Carmel’s downtown area, known as the Carmel Arts & Design District, perfectly mixes quaint Main Street USA with modern shopping and dining. Browse the boutiques, meander through the antique stores and enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many restaurants — it’s quintessential small town in a big city!
Spanning over 20 miles from downtown Indy north through Westfield, the Monon Trail is a popular spot for walkers, runners and bikers. Once a railroad, the trail is now the perfect spot to get some fresh air and a little exercise.
Step back in time and experience Indiana before she became a state at Conner Prairie. This interactive history park has indoor and outdoor exhibits and is fun for all ages. See a Civil War battle recreation, visit an Indian camp and take a hot air balloon ride.
