Local Attractions


Canal Walk

The Canal Walk is part of the Indiana Central Canal, which was dug in the early 1800s, in an effort to facilitate interstate commerce. Today, the refurbished Canal Walk (stretching north through White River State Park to 11th Street) serves the downtown community as a waterside promenade for walkers, runners, bikers and sightseers (while the canal itself includes a steady stream of pedal boats, which may be rented west of the Indiana State Museum).

Children's Museum

Located just minutes from downtown, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis features five floors of fun and interactive learning that have the power to transform the lives of children and families across the arts, world cultures, sciences, and humanities.

Eagle Creek Park & Marina

One of the nation's largest city parks, Eagle Creek Park covers over 3,900 acres of land on the northwest side of town. As the park's trails beckon to hikers and birders, its 1,400-acre lake--a frequent host of U.S. Rowing's National Championship--welcomes fishermen and sailors. As well as picnic areas and a swimming beach, the park offers rentals for canoes, kayaks, Hobie Cats, sailboats, pontoon boats, wind-surfing and pedal boats--as well as lessons for the aforementioned.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Internationally famous, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is home to both the world's largest and second-largest single-day sporting events. The Speedway celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 2011! The track opened in 1909 and is the world's largest spectator facility. It is so large that you could fit the Roman Coliseum, Vatican City, Wimbledon Campus, Rose Bowl, Yankee Stadium and Churchill Downs inside the 2.5-mile oval. Since 1911, the Speedway has been the home of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the Indianapolis 500. The Brickyard 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race has become one of NASCAR's most coveted races since the inaugural event in 1994. The Speedway also hosts the popular Red Bull Indianapolis GP MotoGP race on its 2.621-mile road course, highlighted by the world's best motorcycle riders competing at more than 200 mph.

Indianapolis Zoo

Located downtown in White River State Park, the Indianapolis Zoo is a 64-acre accredited zoo, aquarium, and botanical garden. Since opening in 1964, the zoo takes pride in providing year-round and lifelong recreational learning experiences for its more than 1 million annual visitors and instilling in them a sense of stewardship for Earth's plants and animals.

Mass Ave Arts District

Known affectionately as Mass Ave, this five-block area is ripe with theaters, restaurants, art galleries and, most attractively for shoppers, a number of eclectic, independent boutiques.
