Broad Ripple, Indiana
A suburb of Indianapolis. I almost didn’t mention this one, except you’ve listed Bloomington and that is a MAJOR college-party city, and Broad Ripple is the same way with all of the bars. I can tell you, though, that there are a plethora of vintage stores all in a row and there is also a Magic Bus and a Grateful Threads. There are a lot of ethnic restaurants to fit all budgets, a lot of local bands come play, there is an annual art festival in the warmer months and there is a nice little picnic park an a hill on the river.
The Monon trail- popular walking/riding trail that goes through much of central Indiana, goes right by the Ben and Jerry’s, and there is a nice health food store with lots of organic fruits to eat while you’re out and about. This place is used to meeting and seeing “hippies” and they are very welcome, along with anyone else who comes along. An ideal place for a sunny day.
