Get Away Downtown

Category Downtown Vibe

The summer is full of events and activities to do in Downtown Indy. Take advantage of our local hotel discount rate and create a weekend of fun. It's the perfect opportunity to get out Downtown, hit that local new restaurant you've wanted to try, then head to an Indians game, or a new art show. Whichever you choose, be sure to check out our suggestions below and save time on planning.

Looking to get outside and enjoy the warm weather? Consider checking out Downtown's public spaces including White River State Park and the Canal District! A great way to explore each is through Wheel Fun Rentals. Grab a bike and hit the paths of White River State Park, or hop onto a Swan boat and enjoy a smooth ride on the Canal. Wheel Fun Rentals has bikes for kids and adults - perfect to wear out those kiddos!

The Indianapolis Indians have a whole summer of highlights and events lined up. From Thirsty Thursdays and Friday night Fireworks, this summer will be a grand slam at Victory Field. Check the schedule for Bark in the Park and bring your furry companion along to a game. And remember, kids eat FREE on Sundays!

Beat the Summer heat with some time in the air-conditioning at one of Downtown Indy's premiere museums. The Indiana State Museum is known for its history of Indiana, but you can also see vintage cars, and inspired paintings of Indiana's Dunes. The highly acclaimed Children's Museum will let the kids in your life be all star athletes, hop on the dinosaur train, or step inside the world of Minecraft. Learn more about fellow Hoosier Chuck Taylor at the Indiana Historical Society and see his contributions to the iconic Converse All Star. Last but not least, the Eiteljorg Museum is always inspiring with its collection of Native American and Western Galleries.

No matter what activity fits your weekend - you will be sure to find it in Downtown Indy. Snag our hotel discount and plan your weekend or week long experience! Looking for more ways to explore? Check out our events calendar for an in-depth look at all that Downtown has to offer.
