Enjoy Indiana’s Capital City

While Indianapolis is well known for the iconic motor speedway and annual 500-mile race, the city has a surprise around every turn. Visitors and residents alike find that some of Indy’s biggest surprises are the thriving arts and cultural offerings, particularly when it comes to family-friendly attractions, events and accommodations.

This summer marks a perfect time to explore Indy with the debut of culturally focused kid-friendly exhibits. For example, the Indianapolis Museum of Art premieres its first ever IMA Mini Golf Course, blending art, architecture, and family fun into the heart of the IMA campus. The course theme will bring to life the culture of Indiana—celebrating landscape, landmarks, and history.

Meanwhile, the world’s biggest and best Children’s Museum features a brand new Beyond Spaceship Earth exhibit—partnering with NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC), Purdue University, and SpaceX. This exhibit introduces children and families to the science of human space exploration in the 21st century.

Exploring the city with your family has never been easier with Indy’s Pacers Bikeshare program. Rent bikes for a day to explore the downtown canal or White River State Park. Follow the eight-mile Cultural Trail that leads you into six cultural districts packed with farm-to-fork cuisine, boutique shopping and public art.

If sports are more your thing, then you won’t want to miss NASCAR’s Brickyard 400, contested in July at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Head on out to the ballpark for an Indianapolis Indians game or swing by the soccer field for an Indy Eleven match.

No matter where your interests lie, it’s never too early to start planning your Indianapolis adventure.
