Re: Ohio-Indiana Roadtrip
For Indy, the NCAA Head Quarters is located here with a pretty cool museum and of course the Speedway which even if you are not a race fan is a place that everyone should see at least once.
Also try to take in a game at Victory Field. It has been ranked as one of the top Minor league parks in the nation. You also might try to tour Lucas Oil Stadium and Hinkle Field House where "Hoosiers" was filmed.
For restaurants you might try Iaria's or Milano Inn for Italian. St. Elmos, Shula's or Mortons for Steak. Shapiro's for sandwiches.
If wife is in to shopping or the crafty stuff look into the Broad Ripple area or go to Brown County which is like an hour away from Indianapolis. It's a small village with alot of girly type shops.
