Home > Indiana Travel Planner > Central Region

While the world knows central Indiana for its big city sights like the Indy 500, the super bowl champion Colts, and the NBA Pacers, too often missed are the small town delights like a pumpkin picking patch, fresh-pressed apple cider, and hay rides. What do you feel like today? The sports fan, the treasure hunter, the history buff, the gourmet, the archeologist whatever it is, you can be that in central Indiana.

Big city sights await you in Indianapolis where you can attend hundreds of sporting events, shop the downtown Circle City Mall, visit the trendy art galleries, theaters, music venues, or unique dining options. Families will enjoy spending time together at the Indianapolis Zoo and the Children's Museum of Indianapolis. Carmel provides an upscale shopping experience at the Clay Terrace Mall and an outstanding art and design district.

Small town delights can be savored near Danville at Beasley's Orchard and Gardens where you can pick a pumpkin, taste sweet apple cider, or take a hay ride. Historic Fortville is home to Dolly Mama's expansive antique doll and toy museum and to Dryer Organ Works, housing an impressive collection of elaborate wall-sized calliopes and crank-operated mechanical organs.

Experience it all in the heart of it all - central Indiana.
