Delphi, Indiana has so many things to see and do you will not know where to begin.
How about tons of festivals year round, really great parks, trails, and the largest man-made canal in the US?
Delphi, Indiana in Carroll County
They have history, history, and more history. Don’t think Indiana history is your thing? Shrug off the humdrum and dry classes of your youth. Today’s museums, like those in Delphi, aren’t anything like that. You can easily see for yourself that our history is anything but boring.
That said, there’s the Wabash and Eerie Canal Interpretive Center and Museum plus the nearby Reed Case House. If you are lucky, you will get a chance to learn more about Delphi history from museum volunteer Mark A. Smith. Don’t forget the neat and rather unique Transportation Festival held annually.
Those are things that are outside of the historic downtown. Make your way back to the Carroll County Courthouse Square and you are in for a treat! If you like eating, shopping, and general sight-seeing, that is. The walkable downtown is full of things to do.
I poked my head into so many little places: shops of Indiana antiques and otherwise, drooled over the baked goods at the Stone House Restaurant and Bakery, and toured the old opera house.
Yes, the Delphi Opera House was absolutely amazing and completely unexpected. You see, Delphi had not one but TWO opera houses back in the day.
Things to Do in Delphi
You may not be able to get it all done in one day…there’s just too much, what with the museum, shopping, parks, and places to eat.
That’s not to forget an amazing public library and the chance to ride a 4 wheeled bike with my husband, Jeremy, and our two boys. Just a stone’s throw away from the Wabash and Eerie Canal Transportation Center and Museum you’ll find Noble Bikes, your bike rental resource. What could be more fun than exploring the canal area on wheels?
When you are done with bike riding, check and see if the reproduction canal boat “Delphi” is ready to go! Now that’s something you don’t get to see every day. It’s a favorite with kids.
Yes, there will be more to come on ALL the above –and then some. What a truly awesome Indiana town.
Delphi people are my kind of people: talkative, informative, and friendly. Tack on two bonus points for that!
From the retail shop owners and antique dealers to the the volunteers and Mark A. Smith at the Wabash and Eerie Canal Interpretive Center and Museum (seriously, if you want to know Delphi history, he’s the guy to talk to), this is a town that is very proud of what they have.
Rightly so! Delphi, Indiana has it going on. They certainly recognize the neat Indiana landmarks within their town and work so hard to preserve them thus ensuring their status as a true destination.
