We traveled east yesterday to explore an adventure route. We drove the Old National Road (US 40), "The Road that Built the Nation" from Indianapolis to Richmond. Our favorite stop was Knightstown, where we explored a local park, a creek and an old wooden bridge. We also went to Frosty Boy Ice Cream and thoroughly enjoyed tasty (but pretty generic) soft serve and root beer floats.
Knightstown is only 31 miles east of the Indianapolis. It is home to the "Hoosier Gym" (the gym where the movie, "Hoosiers" was filmed). It also looks to have several antique places off the main road and a working train depot. We plan to take a ride when we come through again. (From the signs, looks like the ride is only on Friday and Saturday, 11, 1 and 3 and Sunday, 1 & 3pm).
