vertical concrete anchors for swing

I cann't find any concrete anchors at the local hardware store with eyelets that I could hand a kids' swing off. They also seem to be just bolts with flat heads/octagonal.
Is there some other way to anchor with a heavy duty plastic plug or something else?
Doesn't need to hold much weight and then I could screw in a standard screw eyelet.

If you go to the right store, they should have a large selection of hot dipped galvanized eyelets. Large ones... 1/2" diameter and very long. I would say you should use a hammer drill and drill a very deep hole... 6" or so, with your hammer drill.

Then after you clean, brush and blow out the hole, inject some anchor epoxy (also in the concrete anchor aisle) into that hole until it's about half full. Then insert the eyelet, pushing and turning it down into the hole. Once that epoxy sets up, it won't be coming back out, so be sure you turn them the way you want them.

Or use the standard bolts and galvanized angles with holes in each leg?
