Visit the Indianapolis Zoo

Located in White River State Park – a 250-acre urban landmark in its own right – the Indianapolis Zoo has been in operation since 1964 and offers visitors the chance to see a number of exotic creatures organized by biomes that include forests, oceans, plains, and deserts. A marine mammals exhibit, with a large dolphinarium as its centerpiece, even gives attendees the chance to see bottlenose dolphins, Pacific walruses, harbor seals, California sea lions, and gray seals without traveling to the coasts.

Check Out Fountain Square

Home to three separate historical districts, Fountain Square has become one of the most robust arts and entertainment districts in recent years after decades of decline, and now features a number of unique restaurants, art galleries, shops, and entertainments venues. Particular highlights include a fully-restored duckpin bowling alley, comic and record shops, and live/work cooperatives like the Wheeler Arts Community and the Murphy Art Center.

Tour the Indianapolis Motor Speedway

The Indy 500 is the oldest, and arguably most-famous auto race in the world, with nearly 300,000 in attendance every Memorial Day weekend. Through the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum, Indianapolis-area visitors and residents have the unique opportunity to peek behind the curtain on a variety of tours that even provide the chance to kiss the track’s “Yard of Bricks” finish line. Snag a ride out to the arena, and really learn what speed’s all about.

Catch a Movie at the Indiana State Museum IMAX

IMAX theaters were originally constructed to show cutting-edge educational and scientific films at museums around the country. And while IMAX’s installment at the Indiana State Museum continues to do so, it’s also the rare bird that plays blockbuster movies on its 84-ft screen. It’s rare to see Hollywood in IMAX’s original crop of theaters, let alone on the largest screen in Indiana, and special prints of films like Interstellar, Gravity, and the Avengers have played here to take full advantage of the theater’s stunning picture quality and scale, along with its 12,000 watt audio system.

Bring the Kids to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum

Situated on 30 acres, with nearly half a million square feet of interior space, the is the largest of its kind in the world. Featuring highly-interactive exhibits for younger children to experience with their parents and siblings, the Children’s Museum offers a number of opportunities to explore physical and natural sciences, history and pre-historic worlds, world cultures, and the arts.
