indianaHave you ever played tourist in your own city? The idea hit me on a recent trip home to Pittsburgh when I told my sister that my husband and I wanted to play tourist. I was mostly thinking of my husband, who is a native Hoosier, because I wanted him to learn a bit about the deep history of Pittsburgh. We considered touring Pitt’s Cathedral of Learning, which is a historic landmark and the tallest education building in the western hemisphere. But, we ultimately decided to spend the day at the Heinz History Center with my sister and her family. I knew I would enjoy the visit, but I had no idea how much I would learn about my own home town.  After that visit, my husband and I both agreed we needed to start learning about our own city’s history. That’s when we decided to start exploring all the great museums Indianapolis has to offer….

And it wouldn’t be much fun if some of you didn’t come along for the ride. So, I’ve teamed up with some of my fellow bloggers to highlight some of the great attractions our city has to offer, while giving you all a chance to visit for free. Starting at 8:00 a.m. Friday, Jan. 20  through Thursday, Jan. 26 at 11:59 p.m., you can check out the following websites to learn more and enter to win.

“Oh, The Places You’ll Go” End of School-Year Tradition

It’s not too much longer till the school year comes to a close, so I wanted to share this amazing idea I found on…you guessed it…Pinterest. You all know the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go from Dr. Seuss. It’s a great graduation gift. But, Lisa from Lisa’s Workshop suggests grabbing a copy when your kid is young. At the end of each school year, give it to your child’s teacher to sign or write a note. When you’re child graduates (hard to think of!), you’ll have a lovely gift to give him/her. Lisa has even included some lovely tags in her blog post, so make sure to go check it out.
