Things to do in one day/night?

We are heading to Nashville, In from Illinois and wondered about spending a night in Indianapolis. The only time we've been there before was years ago for events at the State Fairgrounds and that area was a bit scary. I'm sure Indianapolis has much more to offer and would like to know about it.

Thanks for any suggestions!

The area most of the tourist stay in is downtown. For ease of walking to restaurants , shopping, and nightlife. Not to mention the museums, zoo, baseball park, war memorial, NCAA Hall of Champions, Just for a few ideas. The fairgrounds are in a non commericial , high crime, low income area. I will agree.

Oh my gosh.........theres so much to do in Indy. With kids, without kids, couples, singles, theres something for everyone.............

Dont pass this gem of a city up. It would be a perfect stop to see circle monumbent in the center of downtown, and go underneath to the museum. Plus, take a carrage ride and feel the charm of all the hustle and bustle of this active, vibrant city.

Or go to benjamin harrison home for a peek into the past of one of our past presidents. Plenty of picks, go on this forums attractions picks, and see what interests you. Theres so many wonderful things to do, based on your interests. Nightlife, dancing, restaurants, all is waiting for you. Can you tell, I love Indy!!! We go tomarrow morning to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. Visit sister and family, then off to downtown to dine at McCormick & Schmicks, then off to the Sybaris hotel for overnite.

Stop in Indy, you wont regret it, its fun, and full of activities for all ages........Happy Summer!!!
