1. Take photos at the top of Monument Circle in Indianapolis.
Indy is only about one hour away, so it’s great for even just a day trip! Head to the Monument Circle and try some South Bend Company chocolate, walk up all of the 32 flights of stairs to the top of the tower, and take lots of Instagram-worthy pics on the circle.
2. Catch the bus to Millennium Park in Chicago.
Chi-town is about 3 hours away from Marion, and would be the best weekend trip! To save gas, take the Megabus from Indy to get there. There are endless sightseeing places in The Windy City—The Bean, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Willis Tower, and much, much more!
