Linking up with two of my favorite girls, Tiffany at The Austin Family Diary and Lauren at Life. Love. Lauren for Tuesday Topics and this week we are talking about OUR HOMETOWNS and our TOP 5 HOMETOWN ACTIVITIES!!!
I am OBSESSED with my hometown of Carmel, Indiana! Apparently I am not the only one obsessed with Carmel because it was ranked the #1 BEST PLACE TO LIVE IN 2012 according to Money Magazine!
Best Places to Live 2012
The next time you're in central Indiana, stop on by Carmel, Indiana and visit all the amazing things my city has to offer :)
Carmel is known for having the highest number of roundabouts in the country with just about 80 across the city. There are only a handful of traffic lights around my city. (They even have a yearly International Conference on Roundabouts!)
|All intersections look like this now with the "bridge" being the roundabout above (see pic. below)|
|Better angle of the roundabout.|
3. CARMEL ARTS AND DESIGN DISTRICT
|You will also see a LOOOOT of these wooden statues around|
4. CARMEL HIGH SCHOOL
The largest high school in Indiana with over 4,500 students. The campus sits on 56 acres of land with the school being 3 stories tall and 22 acres big... Imagine walking across one end of the school to the other during passing period!
5. THE PALLADIUM
The Palladium first opened it's doors in January 2011. It's the ideal place to watch a broadway musical, enjoy theatre and opera as well as concerts by big musical groups.
6. THE MONON CENTER
This amazing community center first opened in 2005. It is a 161 acre park that has everything from a three level fitness center, 10 acre indoor/outdoor water park, fishing pond, skate park with after school enrichment programs.
I was SO lucky to be born and raised in Carmel and I can't say enough good things about my hometown!!!!!!!
