Downtown Indianapolis

Have an Incredible Time in Indianapolis

Circle City spins with fun and excitement all year long, promising all kinds of things to see and do, no matter the season. Here are a few of the best ways to kick your Indy visit into high gear.

Catch a game.

The Sheriff may be gone, but the Indianapolis Colts carry on, hosting NFL action at Lucas Oil Stadium each fall – with playoff games going into January if they're lucky.

Of course, football's not the only game in town – the Indiana Pacers engage in high-flying NBA action at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse all fall and spring. Check the schedule during your visit to be a part of the action.

Feel the need for speed.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway put Indianapolis on the map, and a visit to the legendary course is a must during racing season. Check the schedule to be a part of big race days like the Verizon IndyCar Series, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and more.

Let the kids learn a thing or two.

Indianapolis IN Attractions

Children's Museum of Indianapolis

Located in the heart of Circle City, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis is the the world's largest children's museum, encompassing over 472,900 square feet. 

There, families will find a variety of traveling and permanent exhibits and interactive areas, including Dinosphere, SciencePort, Hot Wheels for Real, the SpaceQuest Planetarium, and the five-story Fireworks of Glass sculpture.

Learn a thing or two yourself.

Indianapolis is home to Butler University, where the students aren't the only ones who can get a little bit of education. The school is known to host a variety of arts and cultural events and live performances throughout each semester – and the beautiful campus is worth a visit when weather permits.

Appreciate the arts.

The arts are alive in Indy, and Butler University students aren't the only proof. For starters, there's the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which is open for tours, talks, performances, and explorations of its wide range of top art displays almost every day of the week.

And for a glimpse into the more modern side of things, art lovers can embark on IDADA First Friday Art Tours. On the first friday of every month, more than 25 galleries open up to showcase the works of a variety of visual and performing artists and musicians.

Take a walk on the wild side.

Get close-up looks at a variety of wildlife at the Indianapolis Zoo. Animal lovers young and old will get a kick out of exhibits and environments like the Forests Biome, the Tiger Forest exhibit, the Bats exhibit, the Oceans exhibit, Marine Mammals, the Dolphins area, the Deserts Biome, the Plains Biome, and more.

Hit the links.

Indy is home to numerous places where golfers can get out and work on their swing, but none are more lauded than the seven courses of the Pete Dye Golf Trail. Touted as Indiana's premier golf experience, the trail features highlights like West LaFayette’s Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex, Plum Creek in Carmel, and The Pete Dye Course at French Lick.
