Indianapolis Attractions

Our next visit was to see Indianapolis attractions. Indianapolis is the capital city of Indiana, in USA. Indianapolis literally means Indiana City.

The Indianapolis city lies southeast of Lake Michigan on the White River - almost exactly in the centre of Indiana. The city's world fame, however, comes from the "Indianapolis 500", the car race held every year on the Sunday before Memorial Day on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This is the world's biggest single-day sporting event, drawing hundreds of thousands of motor sport fans.

Indianapolis has a humid continental climate. Summers are very warm and humid and Spring and Autumn are usually pleasant. During our trip the weather was really pleasant.

Indianapolis is home to several venues for the performing arts. This city offers a lot of other attractions also for the tourists, such as.

  • Indianapolis Zoo
  • Indianapolis Art Center
  • NCAA Hall of Champions
  • The Children's Museum
  • White River State Park
  • Murat Center

Indianapolis Hotels

The Children's Museum is a great place for the kids as well as their parents to enjoy. Who can resist Hotwheels, Airplanes, Dinasours and water areas (splashes) etc? While the kids keep themselves occupied by doing fun things there the elders can find many ways to sit and relax or join them. If that is not sufficient to keep your kids occupied you can also visit planetarium and a theater performance.

If you're a museum lover Indianapolis Museum of Art is for you. Spending some time exploring, reading and enjoying their collections of art can take you to a different world. Watching the 100 acres of land with beautiful gardens, fountains and sculpture can be a delight for any. You can visit majority of the galleries without paying a fee. Before going to visit Indianapolis Museum of Art, one of the many Indianapolis attractions, don't forget to visit their website www.imamuseum.org.
