On a recent trip to Indy, we had so much fun exploring a couple of my fave neighborhoods, Fountain Square and Mass Ave. Had to stop at Indy Swank. Love this store with vintage clothes, books, note cards, shoes and jewelry, such fun to explore! From the Fountain Diner to The Flying Cupcake Bakery, these areas have so much to offer. I also had to stop in Mesh on Mass Ave. for dinner. Love this place with knowledgeable friendly service, creative cocktails, perfectly delicious food and warm environment. Must go back again soon and check out some of the bands, or maybe one of the comedy clubs!
