For the Win-dianapolis

Outside In(dy): If you’re itching to get outdoors on your Indianapolis getaway, you’ll find plenty of places that hit the spot. Stroll around downtown’s Central Canal and see some of the city’s most famous sights. If you want to get floaty, you can rent a paddleboat, kayak, or go full-on romantic with a ride in a gondola. If you’re up for an even longer walking tour, the Indianapolis Cultural Trail is an eight-mile-long trail that connects six of Indy’s artsy hot spots. And if you want an adrenaline rush instead, hop on a zip line course at Eagle Creek Park, Indianapolis’s largest city greenspace.

On the Road Again: One of the best ways to get the most out of your cheap car rental in Indianapolis is to hit the road for a day trip. Chicago is about three hours away, if you want to see a stellar skyline, hit up the fancy Magnificent Mile, and grab a slice or two of deep-dish pizza. If you’re looking to get a little more on the cutesy side, you’ll find Santa Claus, Indiana less than three hours from town. Yes, there are a lot of holiday-themed attractions to get into, including Santa’s Candy Castle. Nature lovers can head two-and-a-half hours north of Indy to Indiana Dunes National Park, where you’ll find not only beaches but also prairies and woodlands. Pick your type of wonderland and explore.

In the Art of the City: Indy is an artistic town, with plenty of museums to prove it. Newfields (once called the Indianapolis Museum of Art) is where you’ll find plenty to peruse, with 54,000 works, including the iconic LOVE art piece. It’s the perfect backdrop for a self-timered portrait before you head to the beer garden on the grounds. Want more? The Indianapolis Art Center is a stunning spot with exhibitions, classes, studios, and a library—more than enough to keep your eyeballs busy.

Need for Speed: Indianapolis is best known for one thing—racing. And there’s no better place to dive right in than at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where the Indianapolis 500 is hosted. But the facility is way more than just a place to watch cars drive super-fast around a track. There’s also a full 18-hole golf course and a museum with race trophies and memorabilia for fast fans to enjoy.
