Start your day with breakfast at a colorful eatery: Good Morning Mama’s Cafe.

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.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
No matter how many years of flying experience you have under your belt, some travelers still struggle to find the perfect position in which to sleep, and also may find it difficult to find the perfect accessory to aid in this attempt.
