Besides being home of the Indiana Pacers and the Indianapolis Colts, the city is also host to the Indy 500 in May and the NASCAR "Brickyard" 400 in August at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Beyond the sports scene, Indianapolis is also a top family-friendly destination -- offering kids world-class exhibits at the The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, along with the only underwater dolphin viewing dome in the United States at the Indianapolis Zoo.
