Next time you visit Indianapolis, forget staying in an ordinary hotel room. Stay in a train car!

As you know, Indianapolis is not too far from the Evansville area. Many people make the trip up to Indy for concerts, races, basketball and football games, among many other things. While you're there, you might do a little sightseeing. One cool thing that you can see in Indianapolis is Union Station. According to IndyWithKids:

Union Station in Indianapolis was the first Union Station in the United States and it remains today as a working train station. Union Station is also home to the Crown Plaza Hotel where you can stay in a normal hotel room or you can check in to one of the authentic 1920’s Pullman Train Car guest rooms that are actually on the real train tracks that trains once traveled on.
