Indianapolis Indians baseball
Victory Field, home of the Indianapolis Indians, is one of the nicest ballparks in all of America. Large enough to be awe-inspiring, small enough to be intimate, spectacular views, good food and an excellent design; there is a reason why Baseball America selected the Indians as the number one franchise in minor league baseball. Try to get a seat in sections 112 or 210 for a spot-on view of the Indy skyline. Ticket prices are a steal at $7 to $11.
The Indians are part of the Triple-A International League, are an affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers.
Lots of screens for watching any kind of sport known to man. On the second floor is a large arcade, the 3rd floor has a small bowling alley, and pool tables, the 4th floor is a dance club. You can spend a whole night there The Hamburgers are great
An Evening Downtown
Start at the Rock Bottom Brewhouse, eat lightly, you must save room for what's to come. A big salad, a sampler of beer, and we're off to walk to Victory Field.
Grab yourself a beer, take your seat and watch some nice minor league baseball. After the game, stop at the Slippery Noodle, listen to the band, and enjoy the night.
I have a very distict memory of going there with my girl scout troop. A woman in period costume asked the group if they could name some of the ingredients the pioneers might have used to make corn bread. Someone shouted out, 'Jiffy Mix!" Anyways, Conner Prairie is an open-air "living museum" of pairie life in 1836. Lots to look and learn about. Go on a nice day cuz most of it involves walking around outside. Also note that you'll probably go home smelling like a camp fire.
The Circle City
Most people don't realize how big Indianapolis really is. This is the 12th largest city in the country. And believe it or not, in the Greater Indianapolis area we are at about 1 million people. I was even shocked to hear that. But it does make since around 5 o'clock traffic! We virtually have everything here. A basketball team, football team, Car Racing, Baseball team, a WNBA team, hockey team, as for sports. We have something like 6 or 7 malls, historical areas, two clubing areas (downtown & broadripple), a couple art musuems, a state musuem, a childrens' musuem, and an Indian Musuem; a zoo, fancy restaurants, and even a few places for concerts.
"Indianapolis Cultural Districts"
There are several areas in Indianapolis. I am going to take pictures of all of them and put them on here. I am only going to put the best stuff on here. If you are interested in boring things like quilting musuems, they won't be on here. It is true, we do have a quilting musuem! It is probably Indy's biggest secret because most people are embrassed that it exists! I'm just kidding, but i'm still not putting a tip about it.
The Cultural Districts: Broadripple, Fountain Square, Indiana Avenue, Mass. Ave., the Canal & White River State Park, & the Wholesale district.
