Winter in Indiana can be long and brutal, especially if you have young kids to keep entertained all season long. Why not break up the dreary winter months with a road trip to Indianapolis? Our team at Indiana RV Rental and Sales recommends you rent an RV, pack up the family, and head to the city for a long weekend of fun. Indianapolis is a great city for families to visit, with a number of attractions that appeal to all ages. Here are a few of our favorites.
1. The Children’s Museum of IndianapolisOne thing we love about the Children’s Museum is that there’s truly something for everyone. From science exhibits to interactive play areas for young toddlers, each level is filled with hands-on learning and exploration. Plus, the museum is open all year long, so no matter when you visit Indianapolis, you can always count on the Children’s Museum for a day’s worth of fun and memories. Check their website before you buy your tickets to find out which seasonal exhibits they have on display that you won’t want to miss.
2. Indianapolis Zoo
You may be thinking that the zoo isn’t an option in the winter months; however, the Indianapolis Zoo has a number of indoor exhibits that will keep your little ones’ attention for hours. The Oceans exhibit, the International Orangutan Center, the Deserts Dome, and the Dolphin Dome are all indoors and warm, in case the day you visit is especially frigid. However, Indiana is known for having mild days mixed in with the wintry days, so don’t discount the possibility of enjoying the outdoor exhibits as well. Both adults and kids love the zoo, and you can easily spend a day there. Pack your lunch, or grab a bite at the zoo, and make it a day-long adventure.
3. White River State Park
The greater White River State Park in Downtown Indianapolis has a number of local activities and events that you can enjoy. Visit their website to find out what events are coming up, or bundle up and spend a normal day at the park. You can enjoy a picnic on the lawn, walking the canal, renting bicycles, and much more. Plus, the Indianapolis Zoo is located within the park, so you could easily visit both attractions in one trip.
