For $250, you can start your day in Fishers at Conner Prairie, an interactive history park, for a day of pioneer fun.  Dine with the family at Big Hoffa’s Smokehouse in Westfield – where you will enjoy a delicious Big Hoffa combo meal starting at $30 (feeds a family of four).  After dinner is finished, visit Unseenpress for Historic Ghost Tour.  Retire for the evening at one of our great local hotels (we have 30 to chose from) and head home the next day!

For $350, you can experience the fun of Conner Prairie – and fly 350 feet up in the air on their new 1859 Balloon Voyage (If you see an AM/PM BP Gas Station, stop in for $5 off coupons).  Once you have seen the view from the top, make the short trip to Historic Noblesville Square for a tasty lunch at Alexander’s on the Square – don’t forget your sweet treat!  While you are in Noblesville, take an unforgettable train excursion with the Indiana Transportation Museum.  After a good night of rest, wake up in the morning and splash around Carmel’s Monon Center Aqua Park.  

For $550, after you explore the grounds of Conner Prairie and go 350 feet in the air on their 1859 Balloon Voyage – stay for dinner under the stars while listening to the tunes of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.   The next day rent bikes at Carmel Cyclery to ride the Monon Trail or rent kayaks for a scenic float at Geist Lake Marina.
