Indianapolis: World-Class Museums and Sports Steeped in Midwestern Charm
Though it’s known worldwide for the Indy 500 that takes place each May, Indianapolis offers much more than motor sports. A gorgeous esplanade known as the Canal Walk snakes through downtown, which Forbes ranked one of "America's Best Downtowns." The path passes cultural institutions such as the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which offers free admission to its collection of Asian, European, American, African, and _X-Files_–inspired art. Nearby, the turn-of-the-century Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument marks the very center of the city with a nearly 285-foot-high limestone statue with an observation deck at the top. And farther north, the famed Children's Museum of Indianapolis draws more than a million visitors per year.
The area's agricultural legacy has also helped instill a farm-to-table ethic that has produced exceptional chef-driven restaurants. These establishments complement the bustling bar scene in Broad Ripple, a cultural district 6 miles north of downtown rife with art galleries, bakeries, and vintage stores. Be sure to stop at one of the city’s family diners as well to try a breaded-pork-tenderloin sandwich, a Hoosier specialty.
Because it’s the country’s 12th-largest city by population, Indianapolis has also attracted a fair share of sports. With a capacity of more than 250,000 spectators, the 2.5-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway allows rocket-shaped Indy cars to hit speeds upwards of 230 mph. Keep an eye out for a yard of bricks near the start/finish line, a leftover from the track’s original surface in 1909. Basketball fans can watch the Indiana Pacers hit the court at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Nearby at Lucas Oil Stadium, you can watch newly drafted quarterback Andrew Luck lead the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.
