Anderson, Indiana, has restaurants, a library, and nice parks, some old houses that look like doll houses, and a theater. There is a restaurant called the lemon drop that has burgers and milkshakes. There is a drive up hot dog stand where you can get floats. There is a snow cone place called Snow Castle. There is a place called Build Your Own Burrito, where you can choose all of your toppings for tacos, burritos and more.

Shadyside Memorial Park has a lake that you can walk around, kayak, and fish in. There is also a big playground there. Both parks have very nice trails and trees. They are very good places to take pictures, paint or have picnics. On 8th St. there are beautiful houses that look like doll houses. During the winter, when the Christmas lights are on, it looks beautiful. That part of town is called the Historical District.
