Fun things to do in Indianapolis this summer
- Visit some museums. Get your fill of culture by touring some of your local museums. Whether you are in a metropolitan area with top tourist attractions, or your community is small and close-knit, museums tell a historical story of culture. You may be surprised by what you learn!
- Enjoy the downtown parks. Pack a picnic and spend the day relaxing in a park. Urban or local, large or small, parks offer an inexpensive way to spend some quality time with family or friends.
- Browse around at your local farmer’s market. One seasonal treasure of summer is the farmer’s market where local growers and artists gather to sell their fresh and produce and unique items. With varying choices each week, this is a great way to support your local small business owners and pick up some fresh produce, meat, fish, dairy, flowers, or baked goods.
- Enjoy a ball game. Whether you’re heading to a major league ballpark or your local little league field, baseball is America’s summer pastime and it provides a great way to spend some time outdoors. Not a baseball fan? There may be other local sports leagues in your area, think soccer, rugby, volleyball, tennis and pickleball, all fun ways to watch or even participate in summer sports.
