Start your day with breakfast at a colorful eatery: Good Morning Mama’s Cafe. Breakfast is served all day and includes tantalizing options like Italian fried biscuits rolled in sugar and cinnamon, and So-Bro chicken, which includes country-fried chicken, home fries, sausage gravy, eggs and a biscuit. You’ll spend less than $15 for most breakfast items.


While you could easily spend all day, or even more than a day, at this first stop, make sure you at least dedicate several hours to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. While you might think this spot is only for families with small kids, think again. The museum offers amazing exhibits that will appeal to all travelers. The brand-new “Take Me There: Greece” exhibit gives you an immersive look at modern Grecian culture; the ever-expanding Dinosphere is the place to be to learn about the latest and greatest in paleontology; and the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience is perfect for working off that breakfast with some top-notch sports activities, from basketball to golf. Ticket prices are according to purchase time and popularity. The sooner you buy your tickets, the more you’ll save, but you can expect prices around $20 in the summer if you purchase at least two weeks in advance.


Get some fresh air at Conner Prairie Living History Museum. A must-visit for history buffs, the huge campus depicts life in 1800s Indiana across more than a thousand acres. Stroll through recreated settlements, see the historic Conner home and even step into the working barn to get a photo with one of the baby goats. Admission is $18.


After a day of play, refuel at dinnertime with a meal to remember at St. Elmo Steak House, an award-winning, old-world restaurant known for its shrimp cocktails, steaks and classic steakhouse sides. With the historic atmosphere and decadent menu items, this dining experience is a treat, but you can still manage to walk away from dinner with a bill less than $30, if you’re on a budget.

To avoid such fees, here are a few tips to keep in mind when booking and prepping for your next flight.
