Explore Indy(been there done that) Watch for Explore D.C.!
You’ll love the Circle City, home to one of the most walkable downtowns in the U.S. and host of the world’s largest single-day sporting event - the Indianapolis 500. Start your engines for a great time!
Your hosts at the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis are excited to help you REV UP YOUR CAUSE. When you are not in amazing workshops, you can explore nearby White River Park, the scenic loop along the Central Canal, Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian & Western Art and shop the three-story Circle Centre mall.
After amping up your philanthropy skills, step outside and enjoy Indy’s delightful dining scene. Travel like the locals. Hop on the Pacers Bikeshare and ride the Indianapolis Cultural Trail to Mass Avenue, a progressive shopping, culinary and theater district. Visit Fountain Square, with its retro vibe and live music venues. Snap a selfie at Monument Circle, the physical and spiritual heart of the city. Stroll through a collection of monuments and memorials rivaled only by Washington, D.C.
With just a short drive to the Indianapolis Museum of Art, you’ll see lush Newfield Gardens, a perfect complement to its expansive galleries. Or, see the dinosaurs at the world’s largest Children’s Museum. And of course, a trip to Indy isn’t complete without a visit to the mecca of racing - Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
