MY Hamilton County Weekend

Sep 01, 2009 by Hamilton County Tourism

Whenever I visit a new place, I first ask "What do the locals do?"  Well, this weekend THIS local felt like a tourist in my own county.  On Saturday, a small group of my girlfriends gathered together at Hamilton Town Center in Noblesville, Indiana for a quick girlfriend getaway.Hamilton Town Center Hamilton Town Center is an outdoor mall - so we were able to feel the sun shining and the breeze blowing as we strolled from shop to shop. We had lunch at a gourmet burger place, where between bites, laughter and chatting was heard from our corner booth.  It was a lot of fun, especially since it has been a long time since we could all just sit back, relax and enjoy a long conversation. Later in the afternoon we decided to walk over to the Hamilton 16 IMAX to catch a showing of "Time Traveler's Wife."  (Side note: As a self diagnosed movie lover, I have been to a LOT of movies and movie theaters - and this theater is one of my favorites.  It is big, clean, open and has the most comfortable chairs).  After the movie we slowly headed back to our cars before sadly parting ways! ForestparkOn Sunday, we had family over for a visit.  Since it was such a beautiful day we wanted to get out and enjoy the perfect weather, so we drove to Forest Park, also in Noblesville.  Forest Park is a large park with tons of green grass, mature trees, pretty flowers - not to mention places to play, places to eat and paths to wander along.  We had our very own Indiana family adventure!  We started our visit by walking down one of the paths.  We walked by families celebrating birthday's, friends playing volleyball, teenagers enjoying the skate park and small groups of people tee'ing off at the park golf course.  We stopped to let Christopher play on the playground equipment and to ride the carousel. Then we paused to watch a baseball game that was being played by a group of very dedicated high schoolers.

What a great way to spend a weekend....
