We have been to Anderson, Indiana more times than I could count. We have an aunt that lives there and we love to drive over and spend the weekend. One of our favorite things to do while here is go to the Hosier Park Casino and Racing. It is a wonderful place for a night of fun and gambling. If you love to bet on the ponies or play the slots this is the place for you. They also offer a great deal of food options and the drinks are never ending.
The city itself is not as exciting as most I have been too and unless you like to eat or gamble there really isn't much here for you. My family lives over on Saddle Lane and the homes in this area are beautiful and affordable. If you need lodging there are several options available for good rates. You might miss this city if you were passing through as it is tucked away in the Northwest corner of Indiana.
The Real Hacienda Mexican Restaurant is a must stop while traveling through. They make the best Chimichanga I have ever eaten. While they tend to be a little pricy it is worth the extra for the quality they provide. Don't forget to have a margarita there, a finishing touch to a great meal!
