Spring Break is right around the corner. If you aren’t able to get away this year, you can have a fun and exciting stay-cation right here in Indy! 

Fun activities for Spring Break in Indianapolis

Canal Walk 

Take a stroll down The Canal Walk and you’ll think you've jet-setted off to Europe. The waterside promenade is perfect for a family walk or bike ride. Rent a pedal boat or kayak, or find a bench and watch the gondolas float by. Finish off the day by visiting a street vendor for an ice cream cone! 

White River State Park 

White River State Park has something for the entire family and you could easily spend several days of your Spring Break in this one location. Visit one of several museums, see a movie at the IMAX theater, ponder the many large sculptures, or play a game of frisbee on the lawn. 

The Cultural Trail 

The Cultural Trail is one of Indianapolis’ finest attractions. The trail is 8 miles and passes through 6 distinct cultural districts including Fountain Square, the Wholesale District, and Indiana Avenue. Don’t have a bike? No problem. Rent one for the day from the Pacers Bikeshare program

100 Acres at the IMA 

100 Acres is a free artpark that include woodlands, wetlands, meadows, and an 35-acre lake. But the main attraction is the interactive sculptures. No stuffy art here...these sculptures beg to be climbed on and played with. Be sure to bring a basketball for the Free Basket exhibit! 

Garfield Park Conservatory and Sunken Gardens

The Garfield Park Conservatory is the perfect attraction for a rainy or chilly spring break day. Inside, you’ll find balmy temperatures and gorgeous trees, flowers, and fauna. You’ll think you’re in the tropics! 

Splash Island 

Does swimming come to mind when you think of Spring Break? While it’s too early for the outdoor pools to open, there are still plenty of places to swim indoors in the area. Splash Island in Plainfield is a favorite with its 20,000 square foot aquatic center that features a two-story waterslide, lazy river, and interactive children’s play area.
