We can’t wait to safely welcome you back to Hamilton County, Indiana when travel resumes. Our restaurants, attractions and hotels are simply not the same without you.

Until then, we surveyed our followers on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to find out their recommendations and favorite things to eat, see and do in Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, Westfield and the four Northern Towns of Arcadia, Atlanta, Cicero and Sheridan.

Here’s what our biggest fans had to say. We hope this inspires your next vacation (or staycation) in our community.

Kayaking on the White River is so fun. However, what I love is how Carmel has transformed into the beautiful downtown it has become and can’t wait to see what comes next!

There are so many great options. A personal favorite, The Italian House on Park.

This is common for us with out of town family! We’d grab dinner at Caliente Mexican Restaurant, Mi Hacienda Carmel or Loren & Mari Mexican Grill, then visit Central Park or Cool Creek Park. Perfect weekend!

A great day for me would be wake up – breakfast at Rosie’s Place in Noblesville, take a trip down the White River with White River Canoe Company, afternoon brews at Four Day Ray Brewing, and finish the night with dinner at DeLullo’s Trattoria.

Brunch at Café Patachou, hike at a local park followed by beers on the Sun King Carmel patio with dinner at Verde Flavors of Mexico in Carmel.
