A Weekend Road Trip to Indy


This past weekend my family decided that we were going to take a little "family vacation" (when most work, thats about all we can take off for) to Indianapolis.  Initially I was skeptical because I had no idea what the city had to offer but I was extremely surprised.  Indianapolis is a fun city with lots to do and tons of fun suburbs surrounding it.  

As for my outfit, I thought this would be perfect for exploring the city all day on Saturday.  I love these  J Crew factory shorts, they're so comfy and paired with this  Old Navy (I sized up so it would be loose & flow) was perfect for being in the sun all day.  I also love this  cross-body bag because it can fit all the necessities like a phone, wallet, and camera but it is SO light.  I will link everything below if you are interested :) 

Here is a re-cap of some highlights of the weekend:

This breakfast spot was to die for and super cute, it was called Cafe Patachou.  They had omelets, amazing cinnamon toast and a large assortment of coffees and mimosas.  Plus they had a really cute tag line, "A Student Union for adults" which definitely fit the feel!!  If you are looking for brunch in Indy, you are coming to the right place.
A quick snap of the Statehouse when walking around exploring the city after brunch! 
Oh the JW Marriott- what an amazing hotel.  We have stayed at a JW before as a family but this one was amazing.  Not only is it a million floors tall so the views out of our room was sweet but it also was extremely clean and well designed.  Plus there were tons of weddings & conventions going on throughout the weekend, so people watching was on point!
Indianapolis Canal Walk- such a fun place to explore.  As you will see in the pictures below there were so many things to see on the Canal Walk.  The Canal itself they said was about 3 miles all the way around, so we spent the day walking the loop and enjoying what it had to offer.  By the Indianapolis Art Museum there was really cool graffiti and life size checkers which we spent forever playing! There also was live music and fun street art that made every point along the walk exciting.
We ended the day on Saturday with a Gondola Ride along the Canal.  Our gondolier was a sweet man who sang us Italian songs and told us about the history of Venice and of our Gondola.  Did you know there are only families people in the world that build gondolas to this day? If you are at the Walk, definitely check this out it.. It was a nice break from walking and a cool way to see more of the city! 

I would definitely recommend Indianapolis as a quick weekend get-away spot! Hope you have an amazing day!

Love Always,
