Ever sat behind the wheel of a racecar as it zooms around and around the track? You can at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Satisfy your need for speed as you drive a racecar or sit in the stadium and hear the roars of the engines and feel the rush of wind as cars fly past you during a race. The Indianapolis 500, held every Memorial Day weekend, is the most popular.
Sports are a big draw to Indiana with its numerous pro teams, major universities, first-class stadiums and athletic events. The NCAA Hall of Champions is another must-see attraction, especially for those who live and breathe college sports. It's the Hall of Fame for all college sports, but it's also a place with interactive exhibits, sports history, current team rankings and a media room showing live games.
But Indiana is more than just a sports state. It's a place to learn about the Amish. Get a guided tour of Amish Acres and go on a horse and buggy ride. Visitors and locals also like Central Canal, which flows by the Indiana State Museum and Indiana Zoo. Walk along it, take a Segway tour, rent a pedal boat or hire a gondolier to take a peaceful ride on the canal.
