Find great things to do with the kids!

Fun things to do in indianapolis

Sometimes they say “Save the best ’til last”, but with Indianapolis (or “Indy” as it’s affectionately known) we’re just so excited, we don’t want to!

Have a guess what the following have in common: The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis which happens to be the largest children’s museum in the WORLD! The Garfield Park Conservatory & Sunken Garden, great for kids to learn about nature, Lowe’s Build & Grow Workshops where kids are taught the art of building wooden projects, and LEGO Store Mini Model Build where kids can play, build and create with lego (and take home what they made!)

Give up? They’re all…FREE! That’s right! They are either free entry, or offer regular free days across the year! Some of the great places to go with kids in Indianapolis!

There are, of course, the list doesn’t end there with activities to do.  Active kids will love Go Ape Eagle Creek Park, and the Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park, and they can cool down at Caribbean Cove water park….just to name a few.

Indy isn’t just flat lands and cornfields.  Once you scratch the surface, you will discover a complete gold mine of fun times waiting to be had!
