The Circle City has it all! The Must Sees before leaving Indianapolis:

Soldiers and Sailors Monument is located on Monument Circle in the center of downtown and has come to symbolize the city of Indianapolis and the state of Indiana. The monument was built in 1902 out of Indiana limestone and stands 284 feet tall. Climb the steps or take the elevator to the observation area at the top and visit the Civil War Museum on the lower level. Also of historic relevance is the seven-block radius of the Indiana War Memorial Plaza historic district. Along with the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument, the Indiana War Memorial, Veteran’s Memorial Plaza, and the USS Indianapolis Memorial, are all located in the Plaza, and each pays its own homage to those Hoosiers who lost their lives serving during the World Wars, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a key attraction for Indianapolis children and anyone seeking a fun and educational family-oriented experience. It is the world’s largest children’s museum, and its 1925 opening date places it as the fourth oldest institution of its kind in the world.

The Indianapolis Zoo is one of the brightest jewels in Indianapolis’ crown of great attractions. Experience the variety of animal exhibits including an ocean area, dolphin show and marine mammal exhibit, a desert dome featuring a variety of desert dwelling animals including snakes and reptiles, a plains area with roaming lions, and a interactive petting area for the entire family. A world-class zoological garden, it is also the only such institution that also offers an aquarium and a botanical garden. The Indianapolis Zoo is situated in one of the country’s most naturally beautiful areas.

White River State Park. The 250 acre park covers both sides of the White River and is an indoor and outdoor garden setting featuring thousands of blooming flowers and an extensive butterfly exhibit in the Hilbert Conservatory. Connecting the park with downtown is one of the most prominent and popular areas of the park.

Indianapolis Canal Walk. Visitors can utilize the canal’s paved walkways for jogging, walking, skating, biking, boating, or just relaxing and enjoying the scenic waterway, murals, fountains, or waterside café. Peddle boats are available for rental to enjoy the waterway from a firsthand perspective, as well as the offering of old world gondola rides. Bicycles can be rented for family fun in addition to Segway tours of the scenic park and waterway.

Circle Center Mall has an assortment of over 100 shopping, dining, and entertainment experiences all in one shopping mall.  This four level shopping complex is conveniently connected to the Marriott Convention Headquarters via a covered skywalk!

With across-the-board sporting action, Indianapolis is no stranger to spectator sports. From field to court, range to track, Indianapolis houses many major sporting venues, and while the Indianapolis Motor Speedway may be the most famous, downtown Indianapolis maintains its share of the action. A must see is the newly renovated NCAA® Hall of Champions Museum. Bankers Life Fieldhouse hosts both the Indiana Pacers and the WBNA’s Indiana Fever, and the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts kick off at Lucas Oil Stadium. Victory Field is home to minor league baseball’s Indianapolis Indians.
