Subject: Re: Indianapolis - see and do
Several great things to do in Indy with a family. First and foremost, I would
highly recommend the fabulous Children's Museum!! It is just north of the
downtown area, so you would need a car to get there, but it's only about a 10
minute drive. This is one of the best Children's Museums in the country, and
adults will enjoy it, too. (If you got your Indy map from SUGI, you'll see it
at 30th and Meridian -- Meridian is the street that runs north/south through
Another alternative if the weather isn't too yucky is the Indianapolis Zoo.
This is actually within walking distance of downtown. Just walk west on
Washington St, once you cross West St you will see the Eiteljorg Museum and
IMAX theatre on the right. Keep going on the pedestrian bridge that crosses
over the White River (wave to the NCAA headquarters as you pass it!), and the
zoo is on the other side of the river.
For those of you not familiar with the layout of Indianapolis, the downtown
area is centered around a circle containing a beautifl Soldiers and Sailors
Monument. The core of the downtown, the "mile square", is bordered on the
north, south, east, and west by, you guessed it, North, South, East, and West
streets!! Pretty easy to find your way around.
With the weather being particularly unpredictable in April, I think the
Children's Museum will be your best bet! Have fun!

< topic assoc = vicarious>
We'd booked the Conner prairie tour, 'two or three more places left' but have
been advised today that minimum booking levels weren't met. We're now looking
for the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon in Indianapolis. So thanks for
all previous email regarding clubs and restaurants, but if you were part of a
family with a 12 month old infant, first time in Indianapolis, what would you
spend your saturday afternoon together doing?
Stating the obvious: given steady flow of papers and sessions, it's the last
time together before Wednesday and mother and child will have three and a half
days to see all the easy spots. This is the time when a little more adventure
is advised given there are two to carry and care for the youngster. Something
slanted towards the rest of the family and away from a 'Tim Taylor' dad are
better. In any case, the pits at Indy aren't an option given potential noise
levels for the infant.
All reasonable suggestions welcome, but if you can't reply by midday GMT on
Wednesday the 5th, then I regret we won't see your reply.
