Happy Friday! I'm not sure that this post qualifies as an "outfit post" as we haven't really taken blog pictures while in Indianapolis, but I did find a few of photos to share so I decided to do the post anyway.
We can't take many weekend overnight trips during Spring (and Fall) as my daughter has several hours of dance lessons on most Saturdays leading up to their performances, but this past weekend the studio was closed and the forecast called for nice weather so I decided to plan a weekend trip to Indianapolis, which is just a few hours drive away from us.
While we've driven through Indianapolis on several occasions, we never actually visited the city (besides taking a few pictures at the Indy500 race track many years ago) so I looked up what there is to do and see and thought it was perfect for a quick weekend getaway. White River State Park is right there in downtown Indianapolis, so we walked along the Canal, visited the Zoo and Botanical Garden as well as walked to see the state capitol building. Yes, lots of walking!! There are also several Museums located in the area but we didn't visit any as the weather was beautiful and I wanted to enjoy the sunshine outside.

I had planned to visit the zoo first thing in the morning the next day, so I made sure to book a hotel room very close by, and we were within walking distance of White River State Park and the zoo. We didn't stay at the Marriot, but the Fairfield Inn which you can see next to the Marriot. We had a top floor room and had a nice view of the Museums and Museum grounds across the street.
