Discovering Artistic Indianapolis – My Favorite Things to Do in Indy

Last updated on September 7th, 2020

Not long ago I took a road trip down memory lane with a tour around the Midwest. As I was doing research on what to do and see during a stop in Indy, the list of places to visit in Indianapolis became quite long. Since I only had two days, I decided to experience artistic Indianapolis, of which there were quite a number of choices.

PhotoPOSTcard: Finding Chihuly in Indianapolis

Last updated on August 29th, 2020

A few years ago on a Midwest road trip I stopped in Indianapolis and indulged my Chihuly glass art obsession. I visited the Indianapolis Children’s Museum primarily to see Chihuly’s Fireworks of Glass and Pergola Ceiling. This is one of his signature inverted chandelier designs that is over four stories tall and has 3200 pieces of glass. I also had fun exploring the museum which is one of the best children’s museums in the country and is also the biggest in the world.

Thanks for visiting.

A Walk Down 42nd Street in New York City – Let Me Take You There

Last updated on September 1st, 2020

If Midtown is the heart of Manhattan, then 42nd street in New York City must be its main artery. It’s only a two mile walk from the East River to the Hudson River on this historic lane, but you pass through a handful of defined neighborhoods in the process, each with its own distinctive flavor. You also pass by some of the city’s most iconic and decorative buildings, both old and new.

Escape on a Getaway to the Finger Lakes in the Fall

Last updated on August 25th, 2020

One of my favorite experiences was discovering the area around the Finger Lakes in the fall a few years ago. My husband and I chose a long Finger Lakes weekend getaway in mid October and found that to be a wonderful season to explore the region. Whether you are looking for a long weekend away, a scenic road trip, or just want a getaway that offers a variety of activities, I think the Finger Lakes has it all. There are wines for every taste, cute small towns to discover and plenty of history and scenery to enjoy.

Beyond the Waterfalls – Visiting Niagara Falls, USA

Last updated on September 1st, 2020

Cool off on a hot day as the wind sprays mist in your face. Feel the raw power reverberate through your body as millions of gallons of water flow by so close that you can practically touch it. Taste award winning wines and beers. Or walk in the footsteps of revolutionary war soldiers or escaping Civil War slaves. Visiting Niagara Falls in New York for a long weekend gave me all these sensory experiences and so much more.

PhotoPOSTcard: The Classic View of Horseshoe Falls

Last updated on June 20th, 2020

This is the classic view you get of Horseshoe Falls from the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. The majority of Horseshoe Falls lies in Canada, but with the erosion over the past 400 years since the falls were discovered by Europeans, a corner of Horseshoe falls now also sits on American soil. To get a wet and really up close perspective of these falls, you can take a boat ride from either country: the Maid of the Mist on the American side and Hornblower Niagara Cruises on the Canadian side.

Thanks for visiting.

PhotoPOSTcard: In Memorium

Remembering and honoring today all those that died  – both in wars and due to Covid 19. And also remembering my mother who passed away on Memorial Day last year. Her favorite saying after emigrating to the US was “God Bless America”.
