Where to go

Travellers visiting the state of Indiana will have fun in the capital. Indianapolis features many interesting sights such as the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which is one of the 10 largest art museums in the United States. Visitors will find an enviable variety of collections, as well as view fascinating films, plays, and musicals with fun workshops for children. Art lovers can also add to the list the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art where one can see local works from Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, and Frederick Remington. Those with little ones can have more fun at the Children's Museum and Indianapolis Zoo while those with a penchant for speed can venture to the Motor Speedway and join a racing program. 

 

Those surveying other parts of the United States can visit Atlanta. Georgia's capital city offers sights such as the Martin Luther King National Historic Site where tourists can learn more about the life and legacy of the man behind the peaceful civil rights movement in the 1960s. From here, one can visit the Carter Presidential Library and Museum where one can find a replica of the Oval Office among various attractions. Other landmarks include Georgia Aquarium, the High Museum of Art, and the Centre for Puppetry Arts. 

 

Travellers looking for short-haul destinations from the United States can go on to Canada, specifically to Ottawa. The fastest one-stop flight going here takes at least four hours, depending on the stopover destination and waiting time. Those going to see Ottawa, however, will find the trip rewarding due to its many fine sights such as the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. Science and aeroplane geeks will especially enjoy it here due to the aircraft displays of the Silver Dart and other fighter planes once used by the military.

 

Those who want to go underground can also visit the Diefenbunker, a Cold War Museum that was once designed to serve as a satellite of the Canadian government in case of a nuclear war. Once visitors go back above ground, a trip to the National Gallery of Canada is necessary. This piece of marvellous architecture is an eye-catching sight, while a cruise down Rideau Canal can be a relaxing way to enjoy the sights of the city from the water. 

 

From Indiana, one can board a connecting trip to Amsterdam, one of the most fascinating European capitals. Travelling to this city in Netherlands takes at least nine hours from Indianapolis which enables one to reach various interesting landmarks. There is the Rijksmuseum which features a large collection of rare art and antiquities, as well as a well-stocked library with more than 35,000 books. The Royal Palace should also be part of the itinerary due to its sumptuous furnishings while the Begijnhof, a tranquil spot of green, is where one can get away from the crowds, especially in peak seasons.
