Welcome to Indianapolis OASISOASIS Indianapolis Spring 2015 catalog

Spring Fling Get-a-Way Day Tour

OASIS just announced a spring get-a-way scheduled for 
April 2. This all-inclusive day tour is perfectly timed to leave winter behind and start enjoying spring. Board our luxury motor coach and let’s explore the once known transportation mecca of the 19th century, Richmond, Indiana. It is now a “must-see” destination filled with notable architecture, unique shops and stunning murals. Learn the rich history of Richmond as we experience the Historic Depot District and visit the Model T
Museum. Enjoy the taste of Olympian Candies and a 
relaxing lunch at Galo’s Italian Grill. Discover Hayes Arboretum where our guide will provide a tour of this 466-acre arboretum that includes an 1833 dairy barn that serves as the Nature Center. We’ll also take in the Hayes Museum, Adena and Hopewell Indian mounds, ponds, fields, and wetlands. As our spring afternoon winds down we return to the Old National Road and visit to J&J Winery before heading home.
Tour cost: $109

The project visits the places the relics from the Fair have ended up, but also examines the technologies and ideals from the fair that shape our world 50 years later. The film mixes archival footage of the Fair with modern-day interviews with those who attended, and created the Fair.
