10. Cheer on the Colts

Home to an amazing NFL team and some serious fans, a trip to Indianapolis wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Lucas Oil Stadium; home of the Indianapolis Colts. If you have the chance to visit during football season and can scoop up a pair of tickets we highly recommend seeing this team in action. Whether it is snowing, raining or beautiful sunshine this 63,000 seat stadium has you covered with its retractable roof. Arrive early to participate in some epic tailgating with some loyal but friendly fans (we recommend donning a Colts jersey).

If you are in the city in the off-season or during an away game you should still head to the stadium to take the public tour that runs twice a week. A guide will take you throughout the stadium stopping in an NFL locker room, Lucas Oil Plaza, the press box, a suite, the playing field and other areas not accessible to the public. Tickets are first-come first-serve on the tour day so be prepared to be there early as they do sell out. Whether you are in blue and widely cheering on the team or touring their private locker room, a visit to the stadium is a must.
