Day 1
Happy Birthday Madison

Day 2
Heading Home

June 7, 2009 (day 2)
I considered hanging around to catch a movie at the classic Ohio Theater but in the end decided to head home instead. I had followed the Ohio River's south bank to Madison so naturally followed the north bank home. Seems I just broke even on to-do hotels and restaurants this trip since I added one of each in Rising Sun.

June 6, 2009 (day 1)
No prelude for this trip. It just sort of happened. The weather looked great on Friday morning and I realized I had no real plans for the weekend. Possibly because of my recent stay at Ohio's oldest hotel, I found myself thinking of Indiana's oldest and I took to the web to get a phone number for the Broadway Hotel in Madison, Indiana. On the way to the listing, I discovered that Madison turns 200 in 2009 and that the birthday party would be starting on Saturday. A call was made, a room was booked, and my lans for the weekend were set.

Day one included eating at a restaurant that has been on my to-do list as well as sleeping at a to-do list hotel. Adding a scenic river drive and a couple of parades makes for a day that's hard to beat.
