Let's kick the week off with my First Anniversary Road Trip - we decided to have a little mini-vacation and spent the weekend in Greensburg, Indiana (exciting I know). As always - the drive is half the fun for us - so we took our time.
After about an hour and a half we made it into Greensburg and they are known for one thing:
A tree growing out of the tower at the Courthouse. There's a whole story behind it - which I won't tell you here - but the link tells it all. It's a really cute little town - there's the older side around the town square and then a newer side that is more the strip malls and chain restaurants.
I'll be doing individual reviews this week of the stops on our anniversary trip - but here are some of the highlights:
Stories Restaurant was one of our first stops. We were hungry and looking around the square for someplace to eat and bumped into a nice couple from Indy. They asked us if we knew where the "tenderloin place" was. We didn't but we followed them instantly! This was it. Yum!
Pearl Street Pub in Oldenburg (15 min drive). Butterflies are so damn pretty! I got lucky with this one.
Nana's B&B in Greensburg. We were the only guests in this three-room b&b. The owners Joanne & Ed were wonderful! Since the room was so affordable (all 3 are less than $100/night) - we opted for the extra package that included flowers, champagne & chocolate covered strawberries.
One of our last stops was Stapps Circle S Ranch between Greensburg & Batesville. It was really the main reason I chose Greensburg. It's like one of those safari parks where you can walk/drive thru and feed the animals.
But the best time of the day was when we got to pet...
THE BABY TIGER!!!!!
Every spring the ranch gets either a baby tiger or liger (yes - Napoleon Dynamite liger) and they keep it through the end of summer. They have certified tiger trainers (one is the youngest in the state) on hand to work with the baby and their adults.
The ranch was definitely one of the highlights of the weekend. While most people might drive thru Greensburg and not even blink - we truly enjoyed exploring and getting to know this quaint little Indiana town and will definitely be back!
