    The US Grand Prix is held at Indianapolis Motor Speedway every year. It has the highest attendance of all races on the F1 circuit.

  • Bicycle Trails

    Whiting Sports & Outdoors

    It's possible, in under an hour, to ride the bicycle trails in Whiting and the Robertsdale section of Hammond and pass by all three of the beautiful lakes in this area, the small George Lake, the medium sized Wolf Lake and the Great Lake Michigan. Most mornings I am up and out of the house by 6:30am when the wildlife is stirring, I see egrets,...

  • Indianapolis Indians

    Indianapolis Sports & Outdoors

    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...

  • Assembly Hall

    There are few traditions in sports that can compare to Indiana basketball, no matter at what level the game is played.

The 52,929-seat Memorial Stadium, located on the campus of Indiana University, is consistently sold out. Memorial Stadium was constructed between 1958 and 1960. It replaced the original 20,000-seat Memorial Stadium that had been constructed...

  • Kayaking Eagle Creek Reservoir

    I had been kayaking in New England and just got back from kayaking in Newfoundland, so, I did not expect much from Eagle Creek Reservoir in central Indiana. But, I must say that I was taken a bit by surprise. My brother and I went out one evening for a paddle and we saw a lot of water foul and some great scenery. Now granted, it wasn't anything...

    Turkey Run State Park is a great place for the outdoorsy type. There are great picnic facilities and you can rent a canoe for a short or long trip. Or if you want to relax, you can rent an intertube and just float down the river. Or you can hike the day away!

  • Go Hiking at Bear Wallow

    Bear Wallow is an area in Brown County that offers an array of hiking for all abilities and ages. It is a nice place to take the kids. It is named, because many years ago bears used to inhabit that part of Indiana and would come down to the wallow to cool their bodies in the summer. Bears no longer inhabit that part of Indiana and the wallow was...

  • Check Out Conseco FieldHouse

    Check out this amazing and modern facility. This is the home of the Indiana Pacers and a place to catch big name concerts and performances. This is the finest arena in the NBA (although I am sure some other city will build a better one soon) .

  • Get some Exercise on the Monon Trail

    You can bike, walk, run, or rollerblade on this spectacular trail that is 20 miles long. The trail runs from downtown past the art museum, through trendy Broadripple, and up into posh Carmel. I prefer the section of the trail from Broadripple up into Carmel, because it is shaded with trees and you can sometimes see wildlife scamper across your way.

    Hiking at McCormicks Creek State Park is fun for both children and adults. If you choose you can camp there. Their are many scenic trails and their is even a waterfall that you can climb up or swim under. It is a great park to visit in the fall when the leaves are changing colors.

    RCA Dome opened in 1984 as part of a much-needed expansion to the convention center, not as a stand-alone sports venue. Opening as the Hoosier Dome at a cost of $77.5 million, the facility immediately became home to the Indianapolis Colts and other national and international events.
