Sports only one of many activities in Indy
Where do Peyton Manning, A.J. Foyt, and Superman all feel right at home? Indianapolis, home of the Super Bowl champion Colts, the Indianapolis 500, and, "Kapow!," the American Super Heroes Museum. But lest you think Indy is only about sports and superhuman strength, think again. The nation's 13th largest city attracts more than 21 million visitors each year. And there's good reason. Indy is also where you'll find some of the finest museums, dining, arts, and recreational activities around. Indianapolis has been nicknamed "The Crossroads of America," and that's because it's easily accessible from many locations, thanks largely to the interstate highways that lead here. And if driving isn't your preferred travel method, the city's international airport is only a 15-minute drive from downtown. While visiting Indianapolis, take advantage of the city's many historical offerings. These include Monument Circle and the 284-foot Soldiers' & Sailors' Monument, a limestone tribute to the state's military veterans that was dedicated in 1902. Monuments are an important part of Indianapolis, and only Washington, D.C., has more of them. You can also learn about the nation's past at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, while the Indiana Black Expo Summer Celebration explores the city's African-American heritage and culture. There's plenty of other celebrating to do here as well. You'll find much of it at the White River State Park in downtown, which features many cultural, educational, and recreational events. Of course, sports loom as large in Indy. The legendary Indianapolis 500 and Allstate 400 are held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which includes a motor sports museum at the site. The NFL's Colts play at the RCA Dome, while the NBA Pacers play at the Conseco Fieldhouse.
