Tour the Circle City

Locals know there’s more to Indianapolis than tours of Gasoline Alley, so here’s a sampling of things to do when not at the Speedway. And remember, pace yourself.

Brickyard Crossing Golf Course – Four holes of this public course are inside the Indy oval (and the rest just outside the backstretch), but it’s no gimmick. The course used to host a senior PGA tour event. Click here

Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument – Located downtown at One Monument Circle, this monument stands just over 284 feet tall (just about 20 feet shorter than the Statue of Liberty). You can climb 330 steps to the observation level or take the elevator. The Col. Eli Lilly Civil War Museum is housed in the lower level. 

Dolphin In-Water Adventure, Indianapolis Zoo – This 90-minute program gives participants a unique opportunity to encounter dolphins up close. 

White River State Park – Indiana’s only urban state park offers an array of attractions including the Indianapolis Zoo and White River Gardens, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians & Western Art, the Indiana State Museum and the NCAA Hall of Champions.

John H. Dillinger’s Grave, Crown Hill Cemetery – View the final resting place of the notorious bank robber, declared Public Enemy No. 1 by the FBI. Born in the Brightwood section of Indianapolis, Dillinger was shot to death by the feds in Chicago in 1934.

Fastimes Indoor KartingSatisfy your need for speed at Indy’s premier indoor karting track. Fastimes has a bi-level track over 900 feet long with banked corners. 

O’Reilly Raceway ParkThis venerable raceway just west of the city has an oval, a road course and a drag-strip. Come for the racing under the lights.
