Activities for children.

We want to take our 2 year old to the children's museum and zoo. Are there any other fun activities for young children?

Those aee certainy the big two, not being sexist, but if a boy perhaps the 500 museum at the Speedway? (Been awhile since I've been around two year olds.).

Beyond that most (all?) of my ideas are adult type things that wouldnt be totally boring for a young child. Will try to post some of these tomorrow (on my phone right now).

That's my $.02,

When our kids were two they really enjoyed "walking" the canal, they spent most of the time in the stroller. At that age the water is cool with the ducks and everything that surrounds.

I don't think a 2yo would get that much out of the Indy 500 site, but girls or boys over the age of 5 would.

Don't have to be male to enjoy such things <koff> Danika Patrick <koff>.

I agree with Mcwill. If you are staying downtown, a walk along the canal is fun. There's a lot of greenspace to burn energy which is what I was all about when my son was 2!

During the day - a walk around broadripple is great for families too. Ice cream at Brics along the Monon trail will be memorable. Also - the Indianapolis Museum of Art is free and has a great outdoor area for kids to roam.
