The capital is full of exhibits and special events at major attractions, such as the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which has a mini-golf game about Indiana culture for the anniversary, historic sites, the Children's Museum, the Zoo and the Speedway. You will most likely think first of the 500 Miles of Indianapolis, the famous car race that has been called “The Best Show in Racing”. If green space is what you want, look no further than White River State Park, which covers 250 acres in downtown Indianapolis.
It features canals, sculptures, a summer concert hall and some of the best views of the city. The largest monument is the Indiana World War Memorial, which is more than 200 feet tall. War Memorial Plaza covers seven blocks; no other city in the United States devotes more space to the fallen of the United States. It is located right next to White River State Park and is within walking distance of many downtown attractions.

First-class amenities combine with exceptional service to ensure a wonderful visit to this capital. Indiana is known for its hospitality, and Indianapolis is a mecca for friendly, down-to-earth people.
