In this article, I will tell you about some historic and natural Indianapolis tourist attractions. Mostly, you will come across parks that all are worth visiting by cycling adventures. I explored all of these sites in my third trip to this city.
The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art at the White River State Park is where you find the exhibits related to the various features of life in America’s Wild West. There is a collection of the works by the renowned artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe and Frederick Remington. In the same area, the NCAA Hall of Champions is a famous attraction paying a tribute to the pleasures and pains of the athlete. There are four theaters where you are introduced to the exhausting routine lives of many student-athletes. The NCAA Hall of Honor is where the respected character of the athletes is highlighted.
If you are looking for some fun with the family, go to the Ellenberger Park. Ice-skating, swimming, tennis, and playgrounds await you anytime in a day, which give you an opportunity to be away from the hustles of the city. Enjoy amidst the shady areas. Take a stroll on the paths meandering through the grounds and the stream. Also, this is the venue of many amusing programs throughout the year.
One of the historic Indianapolis tourist attractions is the Garfield Park Conservatory that is a park with small world of fun for all ages. In this park, there are replicated habitats of the desert or the tropics boast a myriad of exotic birds and fishes, tennis courts, playground, fitness facilities, family center, pagoda and aquatic center. On the other hand, outside lies the great view of the sunken gardens.
The Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument at Monument Cir is something that no one can miss due to its 284-feet of height. It is dedicated to thousands of Indianapolis residents who sacrificed their lives in the Civil War. You can explore this monument completely right from the glass observatory at the top to the basement exhibiting paraphernalia.
If you are interesting some scenic jogging, the Central Canal Towpath is the best place to be. This is a beautiful green land that boasts a five-mile towpath running from the Broad Ripple alongside a scenic canal. This is where you can enjoy the tranquil atmosphere as you stroll, jog, or bike. And there is a small adventure too where along with your children and a few bread, you can feed the greedy ducks and geese.
