Indiana --Indianapolis and Bloomington help

Jump to last reply

I am going to Indianapolis for a couple of days for business, and then will go to Bloomington to visit a friend. I will have an afternoon, and 1 or 2 dinners free in Indy, staying downtown near the connvention center (at the Hyatt Regency, specifically).

First, can anyone suggest some good sights in Indy for an afternoon? I like museums and historic sites. Originally was thinking of the art museum, but its a little out of the way. That is, I think I would prefer to walk around downtown a little bit and see whats there. Are there particular spots you think are worth a stop?

Second, any dining recommendations for a solo diner? I generally like to sit at the bar when I'm alone, and like places where the food is good, and dining at the bar is generally accepted, and that are NOT pickup joints.

What about Bloomington? I'll be staying near the IU campus, my friend is new to the area and doesn't know much about what there is to see. It seems IU has a pretty nice art museum. Any other thoughts?

Dining recommendations in Bloomington?

I'd be much obliged for any ideas! thanks!
