I love exploring a new city. When I was in Indianapolis for the U2 concert, I was fortunate to be able to spend the day taking in the sites and sounds of downtown. Specifically walking around Monument Circle and the Indiana World War Memorial Plaza Historic District. Beauty isn’t only found in nature. Old buildings hold so much fascination for me, they have such character and attention to detail you don’t always find nowadays.

Noted as one of the finest examples of the City Beautiful movement design in the United States, the seven-block Indiana World War Memorial Plaza Historic District began construction in 1921 in downtown Indianapolis. The National Historic Landmark includes the Neoclassical American Legion and Central Library buildings, Depew Memorial Fountain, several sculptures and memorials, and open space, hosting many annual civic events.
