It was our first trip to Indianapolis where our three grandchildren moved to, last December. Although the downtown core of the city is small, it sprawls far beyond what I had expected, with seemingly new buildings all around major city arteries. Apparently, it’s the 14th largest city in the US. The suburb of Carmel where we stayed is abound with beautiful mansions surrounded by large trees on their expansive lots with these trees giving out a constant rain of multi-colored leaves. Evergreens are more scarce than the westcoast. But broadleaves of all types were at their prime with grandiose range of autumn colors. We enjoyed our grandchildren in such a beautiful setting.
There are many places to see in Indianapolis, one of them being Indianapolis Museum of Art which is located in a large park and houses surprisingly large collection of European and American Art. I could have spent another day there.
