I have a few hours to spend here, what should I see or do?

Due to recent construction on I-65, about half of visitors are locals. Of the rest, most stayed at hotels near the Visitor Center. Most locals who came in wanted a visitor guide, local maps, and recommendations for new restaurants to try.  Many requested for coupons from local restaurants.
