There are numerous superb sites for kids. The Children's Amusement Park is the most famous attraction in the world and there are a number of magnificent tricks for kids as well as for adults.

Close to the Indianapolis’ games site, there is the NCAA Hall of Champions situated at 700 West Washington Avenue.

During the last weekend of April access is free to Indy 500 Speedway. You can observe the racecars and see the drivers check the path and their cars in training for Indy 500. Only natives are familiar with this, but we happened to be there on one of these days.
