Solitude is defined as the state or situation of being alone. Let's face it, we all need some alone time now and then or are sometimes forced to be alone.
So, why not put together a list of top activities to keep you busy in your solitude.
While there are the big shopping sites out there that everyone is familiar with, I wanted to include locally owned Hendricks County online shopping options in my list. Two of our most prominent local online shopping options actually started in the virtual world before eventually opening storefronts.
Seize the Night Designs
Owner Sarah Fentz started her popular handmade jewelry option on Etsy and still maintains and sells from that platform even after opening her storefront on the square in Danville. Visit her online store
Who North America
Much like Seize the Night, Keith and Jany Bradbury maintained an online presence selling Doctor Who memorabilia long before opening their now destination-worthy retail store and museum in Camby. You will find that their website still reflects that. Visit their online store
MRC Wood Products
A true hidden gem in Brownsburg that does have a small gift shop/public store, MRC Wood Products sells most of its inventory online. Their custom wood signs have become a huge hit in the Central Indiana region and beyond. Visit their online store
A relatively new option in Hendricks County, ArtGab is an online store put together by the Hendricks County Arts Council featuring products from local artisans. The inventory includes beautiful bags, totes, cards, notebooks and other one-of-a-kind accessories. Visit their online store
Explore Parks & Trails
Another great way to enjoy solitude in Hendricks County can be found in our amazing parks and trails. We currently have two great nature preserves that we highly recommend visiting on your own including McCloud Nature Park near North Salem and Sodalis Nature Park near Plainfield.
Dining at Home
If you want to stay in and eat at home but don't want to cook for yourself or simply aren't good at it, we have you covered there, too.
Plan for a Future Staycation
Having time to yourself should give you plenty of time to plan a future trip. But why spend thousands of dollars elsewhere when you can come to Hendricks County, have fun and save some cash?
