A few weekends ago, I took a roadtrip to Indianapolis with my friend Yasmeen. We were attending a creative arts conference called Karitos, but we wanted something to do with our extra time to explore Indy. After much searching for something free and more unique than the typical tourist traps (museum, zoo, blah, blah, blah,) we discovered http://www.roadsideamerica.com and decided to do an Indy Scavenger Hunt to find all of the Indianpolis oddities listed on their site. What fun! Here’s the outcome of our trip, in 3 posts going up today (obviously), tomorrow, and Saturday. Bring it!

Scavenge: Part 1

Our first goal was the Galyan Bear, which resides in this park.

Since it costs money to enter, we snapped a photo and moved on to the next stop: Futuristic Pyramids.

We found the pyramids, as well as a scenic fountain that misted over us in the breeze.

A demolished road tried to hide the large bowling pin from us, but we got mad skillz. We forgot a bowling ball to knock it down.

The Twisted House at Artspark is definitely in the running for our fav find. The entire Artspark is gorgeous and so fun to explore, so we hope to explore more another trip. We felt a lil like posers with all the legit artist community around us, but it was so fun pretending to be legit with them 🙂

We couldn’t find the Martin Luther sculpture, so instead we drove past a Library in a Box.

Next we went to the Children’s Museum to see dinosaurs breaking out of (and into) the building.

Do you know the Muffler Man? He lives on 16th Street.11188383_10100166776637052_2714135844214988511_n

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thru the gate and the trees and the building is the Medical History Museum, where they have an autopsy room and brains in jars. Also, rumor has it that the people we saw digging were uncovering dead bodies (yes, I totally started that rumor. But you know it’s true.)

The day held a whole bunch of crazy fun sites. And we still had so many more to go, but first, Karitos! (Read tomorrow’s post on that.)
