Fun Things To Do With Your Kids Around Indianapolis
- Spending Time With Kids
Indianapolis is the 14th largest city in the U.S. and one of the Midwest’s famously friendly cities. The capital of Indiana, Indianapolis plays host to many conventions and sporting events – the Indianapolis 500 just ran its 100th race – and there are enough fun free things to do to make it an affordable family vacation destination.
Indianapolis has remade its downtown into a hub of activity. If you haven’t been in awhile, you might not recognize the city, and all the new fun things to do. The zoo, part of the White River State Park, boasts The International Orangutan Center, and each year, the city hosts GenCon, an annual gaming convention that attracts visitors worldwide.
Like most Midwestern cities, Indianapolis summer temperatures often exceed 90 degrees with daily winter highs hovering just above freezing. The most pleasant time to visit is the fall, when temperatures hover around 65 and rain is less frequent. It offers a combination of indoor and outdoor activities, some focused on history, others on sports and culture, to appeal to a wide range of visitors.
