Lucas Oil Raceway

Lucas Oil Raceway is home to the most historic drag strip in the world, a fan-favorite short track paved oval, and a 2.5 mile road course. Each year, the US Nationals (currently the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals) comes to Lucas Oil Raceway over Labor Day weekend. This event is the largest drag race in the world which will see more than 100,000 guests and close to 1,000 competitors. Ticket prices vary by day and seating location. The US Nationals is truly a sensory overload when the Top Fuel Dragsters and Nitro Funny Cars reach speeds of over 320 MPH in only 1000 feet of track. Wear ear protection and sun screen since the cars are loud and the sun is hot! Throughout the rest of the year, the track features a amateur race night most Wednesdays where anyone can race their own car down the drag strip, called Wild Wednesday. The track will also feature the ARCA Racing Series, CRA Series, USAC, Mazda Road to Indy (Pro Mazda/USF2000), Summit ET Bracket Series Division 3 Finals, Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, NMCA (National Muscle Car Association), Hot Rod Drag week, and more! Visit our website for all event information.

Hummel Park

Reviewed By caleb h - Tucson, Arizona

For a simple park, this one has some things going for it, playgrounds, basketball, nice paved trail, creek to throw rocks in, lots of space of you just want to chill out. Great for many things. Its pretty well maintained and occupied so it doesn't feel like a deserted dump like how most parks turn out

Daredevil Brewing Company

Reviewed By Joseph T - Indianapolis, Indiana

I'm not a big beer drinker but I can tell you even a non beer lover like me could find a beer to like at Daredevil.

The beer I found I liked was CHAR, a smoked English porter. Like I said, in no expert but I really liked this beer.

I counted about 16 different beers on their beer menu.

We also had sandwiches and chili. Grilled cheese with 3 or 4 types of cheese with a nice bread grilled perfectly. The chili was tasty, could have been a little warmer but it was still pretty good. They had a few other items on the menu that looked interesting.

It's an open airy place, maybe 15 or so tables, the stools/chairs were so so to sit in. It's clean and fairly bright as well.

Parking was easy and free as well.

All in all there 12 of us on this night. Service was fine, beer was pretty good and the food was also pretty good.

Arbuckle Acres Park

Reviewed By Sootsgd - Brownsburg, Indiana

Arbuckle is a nice place where you can jog, hike, walk, shoot hoops, let the kids play on the play ground, sit by the creek, catch minnows or more. There are shelters that can be rented for parties and gatherings. No fee to enter.

We've ridden horses during an hour-long guided tour twice now at this place & each time we had a blast! The horses are very well trained and the young female guide was sweet, patient and experienced. Trail was even, quiet, shady. Friendly people. Real farm setting. Highly recommended for all ages!

Reviewed By fdwt994 - Indianapolis, Indiana

Every square inch is crammed with inflatables and arcade games, which is the point, right? However, it's a little uncomfortable for parents watching their kids as the seating area has old, hard chairs and it's cramped. Some of the inflatables could use some cleaning also. The kids had fun.

Finally! I can go to a late afternoon or evening movie and have a diet decaffeinated drink! Also, love that the seat arms raise for easier hand holding. Great leg room too. Definitely our favorite theater!

Splash Island

Reviewed By John R - Nashville, Indiana

Pretty standard waterpark experience. We went on a near 95 degree day so while the water felt great, the place was packed so it was hard to fully enjoy. But the workers and lifeguards were very attentive and the place was pretty clean.
