Indianapolis might be known for its high-speed cars, but a drive around the city will reveal there’s a lot more to this historic, green city than meets the eye. Your rental car is your ticket to world-class museums and peaceful state parks.
Read on for our pick of the most unmissable Indianapolis sights, all quick and easy to access with your rental car.
The famous Indy 500 motor race takes place in this iconic venue every Memorial Day weekend – but it’s a thrill to visit even if you can’t bag tickets for the big event itself. Races happen throughout the year and there’s a terrific on-site museum dedicated to car racing.
The cultural heart of Indianapolis lies in White River State Park. Dance at an open-air concert. Meet magnificent mammals at the Indianapolis Zoo. Stand in awe of the paintings in the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art. Or simply relax in the peaceful green space or drift along the river on a pedal-boat.
In the heart of Downtown Indy, a column of pale stone towers above fountains and sculptures of figures from the Civil War. The monument is impressive, the view from the top doubly so. Clamber up the 330 steps for a stunning vantage point over the city center.

To make the car rental process as quick and as easy as possible, we’ve answered all of the biggest questions people have about it. Meaning when you arrive in Indianapolis, you can be on the move straight away.
Ask each rental company what their age requirements are. As a general rule, if you’re aged between 21 and 24 you can rent with a younger driver surcharge. If you’re 25 and above, you’re good to go.
Most car rental companies prefer credit cards for booking – they might block out a deposit for the duration of your rental – so bring yours. If you don’t have one, contact your rental company in advance. Of course, you also need to bring your US driving license to get the car, too.
There’s nothing to stop you picking up a nice sports car such as a Mustang or a Camaro. Indianapolis hosts numerous international car rental companies that offer a wide range of vehicles for you to use. Enterprise, Hertz, Avis and more operate in the city, so you can take your pick of sedans, compacts, SUVs and more. To find the right car for you, use the Orbitz car rental search and seek out the best deal for your trip.
