Those Friendly Hoosiers
I've always found Hoosiers to be friendly, and helpful if you need it. These people tend to be quite serious about their basketball (especially high school and college), so you can always get a conversation started if you talk about basketball!
A VERY small bar in the Broad RIpple Village area, it's my favorite bar. I'm not much on dance clubs. This place is cozy, dark, and offers great beer. Be warned, it can get pretty packed in there, but stop onin even for one beer. None that I know of.
They are Serious about some PIZZA!
I love this little hole in the wall place. I can honestly say everything is good here! The staff is awesome, very helpful! I like this place because it is one of those places you could picture people going to after they won a baseball game pushing table together and eatting some great pizza! I do want to mention, it is a few dollars more than most pizza places. Yet it is completely worth it because they have such a variety of topping choices and they are so fresh! My favorite dish is the calzones. I always get the mushroom, spinach, with diced tomatoes and add ham. YUM! And the cheese is melted right on top!
Indiana State Museum
Great museum. Four floors tell you all about Indiana. The first floor shows primative Indiana. Exhibits feature land and animals. The next two floors show different things. One side had a replica of a 1920's town. There is a general store, music store, shoe store, car garage and some others. There also was an exhibit by 4 artists who split up and did a painting depicting each of Indiana's counties. They were beautiful. There is also an exhibit on Indiana furniture through the years. The fourth floor was closed during my visit. I think they were setting up a new exhibit.
Opening in 1964, the Indianapolis Zoo offers an array of exotic and domestic animals within its park. Consisting of different world regions and bioms including the forest, waters, deserts, plains, and the opportunity to touch and interact with animals inside the encounters biome.
Each of these are very unique and consist of their own specific breads. The forest biome involves animals such as kodiak bears, many bird types, tigers, lemurs and bald eagles. Waters include the under construction dolphin exhibit, sea lions, fish of many types and the amazing sea horse that is currently there. That was my favorite of the water.
In the desert biome you have many types of snakes, turtles and the likes. The plains was my overall favorite with lions, giraffes, ostriches, zebras, elephants and awesome rhinos.
Located in White River State Park, there is plenty to do even around the zoo area including the botanical gardens, but you could easily spend your entire day with the animals.
