If you’re looking for a post-holiday getaway, grab the girls and plan an overnight stay in Hendricks County, where you can literally shop ‘til you drop. From an outdoor mall featuring national brands, restaurants, and entertainment, to local boutique shops, the area is a true shopping destination.

First stop: The Shops at Perry Crossing. Dress for the weather as it’s an outdoor mall, but don’t let that deter you. You can grab a hot drink while you mosey or even buy a new coat and hat. If you want to hit all your big chain stores (Old Navy, Dick’s, JCPenney and much more), this is the place to be.

And, there are plenty of places to get grub to fuel your shopping spree, whether you want more of a fine dining atmosphere at Stone Creek Dining Company, or a fun-filled atmosphere at BRU Burger Bar or Hot Box Pizza. Need a real break? Kick back and catch a movie at the movie theater right in the middle of Perry Crossing. And plan on booking a room at the Courtyard Indianapolis Plainfield, scheduled to open this winter and located in the middle of the mall.
