Indianapolis Things to do – Superbowl weekend
Indianapolis will be hosting Superbowl XLVI, with millions from all over the world coming to town to visit. There are going to be plenty of Superbowl related parties with big name artists and celebrities coming to town, such as Pitbull and Snoop Dogg. For $25, you can participate in the NFL experience, which allows you to try different mini games and meet handfuls of athletes who are walking around the complex. There is also a zipline that is running above the Superbowl village that affords you the opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of the city and festivities.
With so many Superbowl events going on, many don’t realize that there is more to the city than the village and concerts. For those wanted to experience the city, I recommend checking out these 5 attractions:
1. NCAA Hall of Champions – Indianapolis is home to the NCAA Headquarters, which are only a couple of miles from Lucas Oil Stadium. Next to the headquarters is the NCAA Hall of Champions that has several mini games for several sports. They also have a large collection of memorabilia from every NCAA school. All college sports fan must check out the NCAA Hall of Champions. Even if you aren’t into sports, you can learn about your alma mater and their achievements.
2. Fountain Square - If you want to see the artistic side of Indianapolis, Fountain Square is where you need to go. Not only is this part of town bustling with artistic shops, but there is plenty of good music as well. After you are done shopping, you can enjoy a nice meal at one of the dozens of nice restaurants. It’s also walking distance from Lucas Oil Stadium.
3. Broad Ripple Avenue - Broad Ripple Avenue is the place to go for nightlife in Indianapolis. They have dozens of bars and clubs that will satisfy any scene you are looking for. During the day, there is plenty of shopping and great restaurants to grab a quick bite.
4. Children’s Museum - Did you know that Indianapolis is home to the largest children’s museum in the world? There is plenty to do at the museum and will keep you entertained for hours. Even if you aren’t traveling with children, you should check out all of the cool exhibits this museum has to offer.
5. Soldiers and Sailors Monument- Located right in the center of the circle, the Soldiers and Sailors Monument has become an icon of Indianapolis. For those brave enough to climb the 300+ steps to the top, you can enjoy a beautiful aerial view of Indianapolis (there is also an elevator for $2). There are plenty of great restaurants around the monument as well. During the Superbowl, they are displaying the large roman numerals in front of the monument.
