It is also close to Victory Field, home to Indians AAA baseball, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and the Historic Hinkle Fieldhouse, home to the Butler Bulldogs Basketball team.
For arts and culture lovers, there is an array of free, public galleries, professional spaces, and art museums to explore, including the Indiana State Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Take in a show at the Indiana Repertory Theater or the Murat Theater.
Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the White River Gardens and State Park, the Indianapolis Zoo, the Canal Walk or a round of golf at the Brickyard Golf Club, where four of the holes are at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway grounds.
