The Indianapolis Zoo is a great place not only for your Indianapolis kids, but for the child in all of us here in the Circle City. The zoo, located in bustling downtown Indianapolis, is a great place to spend a sunny summer afternoon. But while you might picture warm temps and sunscreen for your visit, you might be surprised to find that visiting the zoo in the chilly winter months can be even more fun.
This month, take advantage of the final two weeks of the Tropical Adventure at the Indianapolis Zoo. This special Indianapolis event has been going on since January 2010, and as Indy finally begins to thaw from the long winter, pack up the kids and head to the zoo before you miss out on this special opportunity.
The exhibit takes place in White River Gardens, one of the most beautiful cultural gems in Indianapolis. The gardens are temporarily transformed into a lush, steamy paradise that will mesmerize your children while sneaking in a solid dose of Indianapolis education as well. The wide variety of tropical plants will keep them guessing, and knowledgeable staff will be on hand to answer questions about each one.
Feel free to wander the grounds as long as you’d like and soak up the tropical ambiance and abundance of plant life, goldfish ponds, and intricately crafted bamboo bridges. The Tropical Adventure at the Indianapolis Zoo is a perfect place to welcome spring to the city and learn a little bit about the earth and the environment at the same time.
Spring hours officially begin today at the Indianapolis Zoo, so you can take advantage of the longer day and stop in anytime from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Tropical Adventure exhibit ends March 14, 2010, but there are plenty of other great sights to take in at the Indianapolis Zoo all year round. Visit their website for more information.
And if you’re in the area, make sure to check out some other fabulous things to do in Indianapolis, such as take a stroll around Monument Circle and take in the downtown sights, including the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument, the Indiana State Capitol Building, and Veteran’s Memorial Plaza. And if your visit to the Indianapolis Zoo happened to be adults-only, stop in the city’s oldest bar, the Slippery Noodle Inn, and spend a couple of hours sipping the local brew at this fine Indianapolis restaurant.
