As the weather in Indianapolis continues to jump from below freezing to unseasonably warm temperatures, many Hoosiers also continue their outdoor activities and habits such as running and biking. A surprising amount of dedicated runners and cyclists can always be spotted in hot spots like the Monon Trail or at the downtown canal despite the dip in temperatures. Those not as interested in regular fitness routines outdoors might wait for the warmer peaks to enjoy outside recreation. The weather is predicted to swing back into the 60s midweek.
The University of Indianapolis features a campus Sculpture Walk, which includes 21 sculptures created by artists all over the world.

Yellow Rose Carriages provide horse drawn carriages in the downtown area originating at the Hyatt Regency Hotel on Capitol Avenue; however, it can be arranged by reservation for the carriage to pick up passengers at nearby restaurants or other locations. Look for the white carriages with plush interior pulled by strong draft horses that are bred for heavy labor. To take a romantic ride call the office to make a reservation; prices range from $50-100 depending on the desired tour length and includes four people. Take advantage of the warmer temperatures and get outside to avoid the winter blues!
