    Indiana State Fair

    by sticki Written Jan 15, 2003

    Indiana at its most cliche. Square-dancing, Marching Band Day, livestock, and deep fried candy bars. If nothing else, it's good people-watching. The Fair runs every year around late-August, but there's almost always something going on within the Fairgrounds all year round. I avoid the livestock areas at all costs (with the exception of a morbidly curious peek at the Worlds Largest Hog), but some people are into that kind of thing, I guess. The rides are a little lame, but the big ferris wheel is nice on a clear summer night. Most people really only go for the food. My required fair fare: lemon shake-up, corn on the cob, and an elephant ear (preferrably with cherries).

    Morris-Butler House Museum

    by Always7696 Written Aug 25, 2002

    Beautiful home that once housed an art school. I visited during a slow time and they provided me with a tour even though I was the only person there. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the families and the house.

    Indiana State Capitol Building

    by Jim_Eliason Updated Feb 24, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Indiana State Capital is an immense structure but not as ornate as many state capitols, part of this is due to that its hemmed in by downtown Indy.

  • State House Grounds - Washington Statue

    by grkboiler Written Mar 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fittingly enough, along Washington St. you will see the statue of George Washington, first President of the United States (1789-1797). I don't think I need to explain anything about him.

    Although Indiana isn't a big football place, the Colts are a great team and you can catch their games at the RCA Dome, which is right downtown within walking distace of everything.

    MY WIFE'S FAVORITE MOVIE IS "HOOSIERS," and so this is a special place for her because the scenes of the Indiana state championship game were filmed here.
