THE BENJAMIN & EDITH SPAULDING
SPAULDING FAMILY REUNION
“Remembering the Past, Standing in the Present,
Looking forward to the Future”
Dear Family Members,
The Indianapolis, Indiana cousins along with the Midwest regional cousins are eager to welcome all family members to the 2020 family reunion. Indianapolis being the Crossroads of America, receives visitors from all over the the world. It is well known for the Indy 500 Motor Speedway where you can visit the museum and take a bus ride around the track, and The Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts.
Indianapolis has lots of attractions such as the White River Canal Walk where you can enjoy gondoliers, kayak, paddle boat rides, the bicycles rentals, or just a nice peaceful stroll, watching or feeding the ducks.
Along the canal is the Indiana State Museum, Military Park, NCAA Hall of Champions, Elteljorge Museum, and Segway Tours just to name a few. Indianapolis has the world’s largest Children’s Museum that has lots of activities for children to do and is famous for their dinosaur exhibit. There's also a carousel on the top floor.
Mass Avenue and Fountain Square are two of the many hot spots to explore near the downtown area with bars, restaurants and shops and is in short walking distance of the hotel. The Handlebar is a cool ride around town that can be rented for groups to paddle while enjoying drinks food and fun as they ride. The horse and carriage are also a slow ride to enjoy the scenery around town.
The Circle Center Mall is near for your shopping pleasure. There are a couple of soul food restaurants, the Kountry Kitchen and The Mississippi Bell if you want to venture out for some home cooking. The King Ribs and Bar-B-Q Heaven restaurants are available for your cravings. There are all sorts of restaurants in the downtown area. A visit to the Historic Society is a must, to see how our city has evolved through the years. Connor Prairie is a little way from the downtown area but is a living history museum. A fascinating place to visit that will take you back in time. There are five waterparks in the city for your children’s pleasure. The Westin Hotel has a pool and hot tub onsite. Our Indiana State Fair starts August 7, 2020 so that is an opportunity for the family to enjoy also. We look forward for a great time with our family.
