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)
Tomorrow I will post details of what I know to do around Indy including non-free things.
Echoing the prior post:
Children's museum is awsesome.
The IMS Museum may be one of the best values in town.
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.
