As we have previously mentioned, we have Visitor Centers in Carmel, Noblesville & Fishers. These centers are staffed by great Hamilton County and Central Indiana residents who offer advice, ideas, trip suggestions, directions, brochures and a broad knowledge base to those visiting Hamilton County, Indiana. We recently asked them what they would do as a Hamilton County visitor - over the summer, I will be sharing their thoughts on the blog.

Visitors Center Staffer, Karalee, was asked how she would spend an arts & culture filled weekend in Hamilton County, Indiana: There are a variety of towns in Hamilton County that would satisfy a visitor's hunger for arts, culture and entertainment. The first stop on an arts journey would be the popular Carmel Arts and Design District, which offers art galleries, showrooms, specialty shops, and life like sculptures that line the district created by sculpture Seward Johnson. Also Carmel will soon have a performing arts center, which will include three state of the art performing places. The next town to stop in would be Arcadia, where the downtown hosts the Arcadia Arts; and one can learn a whole new set of crafts and arts skills. The Tabby Tree Weaver is just one stop where classes are held to complete a variety of artistic classes. Once in Arcadia, you can also seek live entertainment at the Hedgehog Music Showcase. The showcase offers several genres of music and children can enjoy the non-alcoholic and non-smoking environment every Friday and Saturday night.
