What to do in Indy?
 
For those of you who live in or near Indy, what is there to do?

Here's your chance to promote your area.

I would highly recommend visiting the Speedway Museum and or attending the 500.

Hall of Fame Museum - Indianapolis Motor Speedway

IMHO, the track put the city on the map..

For those who like animals, there's the Indy Zoo.

There's also the Children's Museum...not just for kids! :D

I had a great list typed out and it somehow lost it/logged me out :(

I was gonna start with a List of Free things, Heres the condensed version.

-IMA-Indianapolis Museum of Art-Free amazing art museum, tons of nice gardens and areas to walk, new 100 acres park.
-Canal Walk/White River State Park
-The Monon Trail-Walk, Run, Bike, Whatever, with family, pets, friends through great areas with great food/bars/some stores
-Crackers Comedy Club-Downtown and Broad Ripple, Free Tuesdays with Internet coupon and call ahead reservation (2 item minimum approx $20 for a couple, not free but very fun)

Not an Indy resident, but there often....

Echoing the prior post:
Great zoo.
Children's museum is awsesome.
The IMS Museum may be one of the best values in town.

Overlooked:
The variety of sports in the area--swimming, bicycling, ect. Great high school sports too.

O'Reilly Raceway Park--Yes, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is known world-wide, and the "Indy 500" is a huge event. O'Reilly Raceway Park hosts a NASCAR truck and Nationwide event, the biggest NHRA drag race in the country every Labor Day, along with several huge regional events each year. Almost every weekend the local drag racing series would be worth the price of admission--very competitive racing. Same cars you can see on "Pinks All Out" but for $10. This weekend is the last public event of the season--"The Fall Classic"--weather will be perfect and the track should be in great shape.

If you want to see the speedway and the drag strip you need to go to Speedway Indiana, not Indy, it's about a 30 minutes (or more with traffic) drive to speedway.
