3. Indianapolis Zoo
This terrific 64 acre attraction, which includes a zoo, aquarium and botanical garden, is home to an amazing number of animals and plants which consist of approximately 250 species of 2,000 animals and 2,000 plant varieties. The zoo’s White River Gardens includes three acres of carefully landscaped garden rooms along with a 5,000 sq ft conservatory. Bring the family and immerse yourselves in learning all about the animals’ natural environments, cleverly constructed to reflect an African Savannah and Asian temperate forest, for example. Travel through the arctic and view polar bears, penguins and other assorted beasts! There is also a great choice of on site restaurants, from burgers, hot dogs, salads and gourmet treats to healthy food, snacks, desserts and drinks too.
