Indianapolis is the capital of Indiana and the heart of the American Midwest. Sitting next to the beautiful waters of Lake Michigan, ‘Indy’ as the residents like to call her is pretty as a picture with many things to see and do. You can easily find hotels within your budget here. Some places that are worth exploring include:
A visit to Indianapolis would be incomplete without a pit stop at its most celebrated tourist attraction - the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, home to the world-famous car race, the Indianapolis 500. This incredible circuit was once an automobile test track. Today, it has a capacity for more than 150,000 spectators on the ground and over 250,000 people in the stands.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art located in the expansive Newfields park is a great place for art lovers. The museum is famous for American art from the pre-Columbian era to contemporary American art, Baroque and Neo-Impressionist art, Asian art, African and South Pacific Art, as well as an extensive collection of Renaissance art.
The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art contains fantastic artwork and sculptures from early 19th century America. The collection – curated by noted Indiana businessman Harrison Eiteljorg - includes works by Thomas Moran, Frederick S. Remington, Charles M. Russell, and Albert Bierstadt. The museum also houses Native American art and artifacts from across North America.
The Soldier's and Sailor's Memorial in Monument Circle is an important landmark in Indianapolis. This stupendous limestone monument remembers those who lost their lives during the Civil War. A short walk from the Memorial will bring visitors to the Mausoleum and Memorial Hall that contains sculptures of political leaders and the Colonel Eli Lilly Civil War Museum.
Unwind after an exciting day of monument-hopping and check in to OYO Hotel New Castle IN Hwy 3 located nearby.
Take the children for a day of fun at the engaging Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

One of the most popular attractions is the dinosaur section with an actual T-Rex bone and an enormous Brontosaurus on display.
