Nashville, Indiana

We spent a week in Cincinnati with Jeff's parents and actually spent most of the time on the road. ;) We went to this quaint little town, Nashville, Indiana, and of course, I took more pictures. The quaint village of Nashville is a great place for a getaway, with hundreds of unique craft, specialty & antique shops, and great music & theatre venues. Visitors enjoy watching artists in galleries and craft studios throughout Brown County Indiana. Brown County is known as the "artist colony of the midwest".

(Yes, one of these days, I will learn to set the date on the camera! LOL).

Leisurely browse through the quaint shops of Nashville, Indiana, or visit every flea market in Brown County. Shopping in Brown County Indiana can be a delightful adventure. In the shoppes of Little Nashville, visitors find original watercolor paintings, sculptures, toys from yesterday, stained glass art, solid wood furniture, wood carvings, metal sculptures, pewter, handblown glass, custom jewelry, interesting clothing, perfumes, wind chimes and even...custom bird lodging.

Yes, no matter where I am, I find beautiful flowers! I guess I "take time to smell the roses" or whatever beauty is around. I'm not sure what this is, but it grows about 3 feet tall and I love the "ribbon-curl" of the flower!

So what's the scoop on scootering? Well, the sidewalks seems to all be good, even my big scooter made it through some smaller-looking ones. Like most places, you won't be able to scooter inside the shops. There is an RV and truck with cargo-trailer parking when you first come into town right past Subway on the left, so make sure you go there and NOT to one of the many pay-parking places all over Nashville. Yeah, wish we had known that. interesting note...I'm not sure about Indiana laws, but apparently pedestrians in the crosswalk DO NOT have the right away, as we discovered after almost getting "mowed down" a few times. Not sure what that's all about, but if you're in the crosswalk and see something coming....RUN. ok... SCOOTER "FAST" AND BOOGIE. ;)
