Are you a local resident who loves the city of Indianapolis but haven’t explored its suburbs? If so, you are missing out on a variety of opportunities. Indianapolis suburbs also have a lot to offer. If you are ready to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, a visit to a nearby city can be quite fun. You don’t have to drive far before you find some smaller, quieter towns with a lot to offer.
If you travel a little north of Indianapolis, you will find towns and cities such as Noblesville, Pendleton and Anderson. These towns are smaller than Indianapolis but rich with history and things to see and do. Here are some of the things you will find to do as you travel out of the big city and explore the suburbs:
Of the three cities mentioned above, Noblesville is certainly the biggest. The historic downtown Noblesville features several locally owned shops and restaurants. As you peruse Main St., you will find antique shops, a toy shop, a consignment shop, and a pottery painting studio for both adults and children.
Located a bit East of Noblesville, Pendleton is a very small town. While there, be sure to walk through Falls Park and enjoy Fall Creek and the falls there. You can also walk the trails in the park or try your hand at fishing. Also, don’t forget to check out the Falls Perk Coffee House and get ice cream at Yummerful. Pendleton may be small, but it certainly isn’t lacking in things to see and do.
Anderson is a bit further north of Pendleton. Perhaps its biggest claim to fame is Mounds State Park. Anderson is full of Native American history, which can be found in the park. Try camping for the night at the Mounds park campground or going kayaking or canoeing along the White River.
