Military Park is Indianapolis' oldest and most storied. In this city of epic monuments and patriotic celebrations, this has been the site of many of the above. Today, it sits on the bank of the Canal, and provides safe haven for students and working folk looking for a shady spot to while away a sunny afternoon.

Formerly the residence of the Hoosier poet of the same name, the James Whitcomb Riley Museum Home is a bastion of historic preservation. This museum is filled with the historical artifacts, furniture and belongings of Indiana's most beloved poet. The home itself is a great example of late-Victorian architecture, and takes one back in time to the early days of James's life.
Located in Downtown Indianapolis, on the border of White River State Park, Victory Field is the home of the minor league Indianapolis Indians. Named for the US victory in WWII, the park retains a classic ballpark feel without sacrificing modern amenities. Grab a tasty hot dog at the snack bar and wash it down with a Sun King, the official beer of the Indians. Ticket prices are so low that you can afford to go out to the ballgame as often as you want. There's even festival style lawn seating to really save a buck.
The Indiana State Museum is located along the canal in White River State Park. The museum has three floors of galleries that tell the story of the great state of Indiana. Visitors are inspired to learn more about the state (and its glittering capital city) by exploring its art, science and culture. Some galleries on the top floor are often devoted to much sought-after traveling exhibitions as well. The building itself is a sight to behold, especially after noting that it is constructed exclusively of Hoosier materials: limestone, steel, brick, sandstone and glass. It is truly a work of art. On site is a two-story gift shop and some casual dining options.
