It’s Spring Break in Indy. Hooray! If you can’t make it to the beach this year there’s no need to despair, Indianapolis has plenty of great spring break activities and, even better, many of them are FREE! Whether you’re pinching pennies or just love a good deal, check out these fantastic local offerings and get your break on!





Go out to Dinner

Who says kids should have all the fun? Get yourself a tasty bite or even a semi-date night while the kids eat for free! My personal fave is Scotty’s Dawghouse which offers a play area and free meals for kids on Tuesdays and Sundays (with adult entree purchase). Check out our list to see where else Kids Eat Free!

Join an Easter Egg Hunt

Your child’s break likely includes Easter weekend. Just because Easter is technically on a Sunday doesn’t mean that’s the only day you can hunt eggs. Check out this list of local egg hunts, some complete with the Bunny himself! You may even get a free breakfast!

Get some Fresh Air

Though the Indiana weather can be unpredictable this time of year it feels great to get some fresh air when you can. Head to your favorite park or check out one of these outside activities:

Take a hike
Take a stroller friendly hike
Have a picnic
Take a family bike ride
Go fly a kite

Visit the Museums

Most of the local museums have a few free days scattered throughout the year. Check out one you’ve never been to! There are even a whole bunch of free museums in the area.

Inside Exercise Options

Rain getting in the way of your plans? No problem. Stay inside and keep moving with these indoor stroller walks.
And don’t forget about the indoor playgrounds. See five here or check out the new one at Cornerstone Lutheran Church in Fishers.
If you haven’t checked out Bonicci’s Family Fun Place in McCordsville check it out during their free admission day on Tuesdays!
