Have you ever heard of the World’s Largest Ball of Paint? If you answered no, you’re not the only one. This odd roadside attraction in Alexandria, Indiana is pretty popular and has had visitors from all over the world remarkably. If you’re ever in the area, stop in and check out this ‘not-so-little’ ball of paint and be part of the Guinness Book of World Records attraction and you’ll get a certificate that says what paint layer you painted! I’m taking one of my granddaughters there the next time I babysit and will add pictures to this page (plus add some on TripAdvisor and Yelp). When Paxtyn, my other granddaughter comes home, we’ll go again and let her do a little painting.
According to the reviews on TripAdvisor, everyone that’s stopped there had a good experience. They recommend you call ahead, although unexpected guests were accommodated with ease. There’s no charge to get your paint on but we recommend you leave a gracious tip.
Using Pet Sitting Visits to Explore New Areas
So you might be wondering why I’m writing a post about this Indiana attraction in Alexandria, Indiana and honestly, it’s because every time I visit a new city for pet sitting, I try to explore and learn a little about the city. Plus, doing this comes in handy so if I’m walking a dog, I know about the parks, greenways and dog parks in the area. On top of that, as I explore new towns and attractions, it gives the opportunity to market my services, drop off business cards and flyers when feasible and connect with locals.
