Headed to Indianapolis, also known as the Crossroads of America? You won’t want to miss these three museums.

 

Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is the largest children’s museum in the world, but there’s plenty to entertain adults as well. With nearly 500,000 square feet of indoor space, plus another 7.5 acres of outdoor fun, you could spend days uncovering all the museum has to offer. Explore the brand-new “Take Me There: Greece” exhibit, opening June 15, an immersive look at modern-day life for an average Grecian family; the hugely popular and ever-expanding “Dinosphere,” with its real dino bones and paleontologists; and the huge “Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience,” where you can try your hand at tons of sporting activities.

 

Conner Prairie Living History Museum

Conner Prairie Living History Museum takes you back in time to 1800s Indiana. Stroll across more than 1,000 acres of recreated settlements, towns and Native American camps. Check out the view from the original Conner house. Definitely spend some time in the working barn, with goats, sheep, cows and the occasional llama or two.

 

Newfield’s

Once the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the newly renamed Newfield’s is a new kind of art museum experience. Combining art with nature, a trip to Newfield’s includes not just art, but also more than 100 acres of woodland, gardens, water features, restaurants, bars and performance spaces. Forget what you thought you knew about art museums, as this new concept takes art to an entirely different place.

Products That Help You Sleep While Traveling

You've planned every last detail of your trip, from the perfect accommodations to tours to enjoy, but overlooked one crucial element: sleep. Travel and time changes throw off our circadian rhythms and lead to sleep loss. However, sleep deprivation can dull your response time, throw you into a depression, age your skin and pack on the pounds. It also just makes you irritable during much-deserved vacation time. Although you may not be able to restore your sleep to its full capacity on the road, you can get more rest with these products that help you sleep while traveling.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

The “Original” Walking Taco

You’re probably familiar with the walking taco if you’re a fan of street food, convenience or even just snacking. Today, the walking taco most commonly refers of an individual-sized bag of Doritos cut open along the long edge and filled with the usual taco topping suspects, but the original walking tacos were made with Fritos corn chips. And, before those, there was the Frito pie — the original, original walking taco, allegedly born in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Travel Congestion a Growing Concern in the World’s Top Destinations

The travel industry is booming with the global sector growing at 3.9 percent, as reported by the World Travel Tourism Council. This figure accounts for $8.8 trillion and 319 million jobs contributed to the world economy, and for eight years in a row was above the growth rate of the world GDP. That may be good news for the travel sector and destinations with little economic stability outside of tourism, but is also becoming a crisis. Travel is more popular than ever now that the middle class is going global, the airlines are competing for fares and stories of people quitting their jobs to travel the world are the norm.
