Family Fun in Indy

12 FREE Days of Christmas

Exploring Indy—For FREE—In Preparation for the Holidays!

December 2010

It's the holiday season and some of us are feeling a bit frazzled with the stress of shopping, finding things for the kids to do over winter break and meeting end of the year deadlines.

Take a deep breath and make plans to visit one of Indy's attractions during the 12 FREE Days of Christmas. I hope you noticed the 'caps lock' on the word FREE. Besides not having to spend a dime, it's a great way to spend some quality time with family and maybe even learn something new. You could even make an adventure out of it by telling the kids you have a surprise for them on each of the 12 days leading up to Christmas if they make good choices!

All you have to do is mark your calendar for these events on the following day. No coupon is needed, just show up and enjoy!

Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians & Western Art (10 am-5 pm)

New this year, travel west and experience the lives of four different families. Build a totem pole, climb aboard a stagecoach or shop in a Chinese emporium. Don't miss the Eiteljorg's brand-new holiday experience Jingle Rails: The Great Western Adventure. Immerse yourself as seven G gauge model trains wind past the great landmarks of Indianapolis taking you out to great places in the West—the Grand Canyon, Mt. Rushmore and Old Faithful. All of these landmarks are incredibly crafted out of natural materials (bark, twigs and nuts) in exquisite detail. The Eiteljorg is the only museum in the Midwest to offer an extensive collection of Western and Native American art and artifacts. Learn about the many indigenous tribes of North America and the diverse cultures of the West. www.eiteljorg.org
