Here’s hoping it’s May while you’re in Indianapolis. Take the family to see “the Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the Indianapolis 500 at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Dating back to 1911, the Indy 500 is held every Memorial Day Weekend, and is considered the world’s largest single day sporting event. Catch all 500 miles during your family trip to Indiana.
Watching sports is always entertaining, but learning about the games and players you admire is half the fun. Check out the National Art Museum of Sport on campus at Purdue University in Indianapolis – home to one of the nation’s biggest sport art collections.
Basketball fans, be sure to visit the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame Museum in New Castle for a history lesson on the Hoosier Hysteria, and see memorabilia and exhibits on some of your favorite Indiana athletes. Of course football fans aren’t forgotten here. Stop by the Indiana Football Hall of Fame in Richmond for pigskin paraphernalia dating all the way back to the early 1900s.
