Indianapolis Things to Do: 224 reviews and 351 photos
Indiana at its most cliche. Square-dancing, Marching Band Day, livestock, and deep fried candy bars. If nothing else, it's good people-watching. The Fair runs every year around late-August, but there's almost always something going on within the Fairgrounds all year round. I avoid the livestock areas at all costs (with the exception of a morbidly curious peek at the Worlds Largest Hog), but some people are into that kind of thing, I guess. The rides are a little lame, but the big ferris wheel is nice on a clear summer night. Most people really only go for the food. My required fair fare: lemon shake-up, corn on the cob, and an elephant ear (preferrably with cherries).
Address: 1202 E. 38th Street
Directions: Parking can be tricky during the fair. We've had good experiences parking on locals' lawns (cheaper and friendlier).
