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. Enjoy!

Visitors Center Staffer, Deanna, was asked how she would spend a fun-filled foodie weekend in Hamilton County, Indiana: After spending a luxurious night at the Renaissance Hotel in Carmel, I would enjoy a special breakfast of world-renowned stacked pancakes at Bub's Cafe, also in Carmel just off the Monon Trail. I would relax and enjoy my breakfast, so that I could schedule a late morning tee-time at Noblesville's Purgatory Golf Club (golfing here is something I have always looked forward to doing)! After a great round of 18-hole golf, I would make time for lunch at The Hamilton Restaurant in Noblesville, which has excellent food and service too. After lunch, I would spend the late afternoon antique shopping around Noblesville's Historic Square - and I would top it off with an ice cream cone from Alexander's on the Square! To close the out the getaway, I would enjoy a leisurely dinner at Matteo's Ristorante Italiano with some special friends. **For more Hamilton County, Indiana trip ideas, visit us online at
