Marion County Information

When you think of Indianapolis, one thing comes to mind first: the Indianapolis 500. This city is located within Marion County and is the state capital and largest city in the state. Sports are a big enterprise in Indiana and racing is not its only claim to fame. Marion County has two major sports teams, the Indianapolis Colts and the Indiana Pacers. The Colts, an NFL team, won the Super Bowl in 2007. The Pacers, an NBA team, has never won a championship, but did make it to the finals in 2000.

There are plenty of other options besides sports, such as Indianapolis Museum of Art. This 2009 winner of the National Medal for Museum and Library Service is over one hundred and twenty years old and is home to works by Rembrandt, Rubens, and Gauguin. Also, its collection of Neo-Impressionist paintings is considered the most comprehensive of its kind in North America.

If you are ready to get outside, visit one of Marion County's numerous parks and natural resource areas. These areas include Stables Chase Nature Sanctuary, Marott Park Woods Nature Preserve, and Grassy Creek Park.
