Indy Adventures!




Indianapolis Zoo

Located downtown in White River State Park, the Indianapolis Zoo is a 64-acre accredited zoo, aquarium, and botanical garden. Since opening in 1964, the zoo takes pride in providing year-round and lifelong recreational learning experiences for its more than 1 million annual visitors and instilling in them a sense of stewardship for Earth's plants and animals. The mission of the Indianapolis Zoo is to empower people and communities, both locally and globally, to advance animal conservation.

The primary points where people connect with animals and plants are within the zoo's "biomes," or collection of habitats. Approximately 250 species totaling 2,000 animals and 2,000 varieties of plants are presented together in simulated natural habitats.

In addition, the zoo's White River Gardens includes a 5,000 square foot conservatory and three acres of beautifully landscaped outdoor garden rooms.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway

Internationally famous, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is home to both the world's largest and second-largest single-day sporting events.

The Speedway celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race in 2011! The track opened in 1909 and is the world's largest spectator facility. It is so large that you could fit the Roman Coliseum, Vatican City, Wimbledon Campus, Rose Bowl, Yankee Stadium and Churchill Downs inside the 2.5-mile oval. Since 1911, the Speedway has been the home of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing," the Indianapolis 500. The Brickyard 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race has become one of NASCAR's most coveted races since the inaugural event in 1994. The Speedway also hosts the popular Red Bull Indianapolis GP MotoGP race on its 2.621-mile road course, highlighted by the world's best motorcycle riders competing at more than 200 mph.
