Indianapolis Geocachers, I'd love some suggestions!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, first post in the forums! A bit of background before my question - I started geocaching over the summer back in my hometown in Minnesota, but now I'm back in college in Indianapolis and am unfamiliar with the area.

 

Basically, I have a date on Tuesday with a girl I'd like to impress (I thought geocaching would be a pretty cool second date). However, I'm unfamiliar with the Indianapolis area. It was easy over the summer to find places to geocache because I lived in a suburban area with plenty of parks around.

 

However, I don't really know where to look in Indy for good places to geocache. Ideally, we would go to an area and be able to sink an hour or two into hunting caches and not have to change locations to find more caches. Are there any places in the Indianapolis area that have a good number of caches and are sufficiently outdoorsy / not too urban? Any good parks around the area that you guys can confirm would fit my description?

I am moving this thread from the Mid-Atlantic forum to the Midwest forum.

 

Have fun on your GeoDate!

I'd probably start with a tour of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, then dinner at a very nice restaurant. Maybe a movie if you can fit it in

 

Save caching for when you're not on a date and bored. Not the other way around.

White river SP & the canal have several nice hides as does IUPUI. I'd suggest a picnic (pack one, don't buy her fast food) at White River SP & cache from there. You could impress her by finding trads, multis, and virtuals.

Butler campus has some good ones and then it's just a short drive (10-15 minutes) to the Broad Ripple area where you can find Marott park to the north and Broad Ripple Park to the east, not to mention LOTS of options for dining in the Broad Ripple area.

Since it's Tuesday, this is too late for your date, but I'd recommend a trip to Crown Hill Cemetery. Some of the best caching in Indy is there and it's all in one place with very few muggles. Crown Hill is such a beautiful cemetery. You can easily spend an entire day in one cemetery.

I second the suggestions of the White River Canal area and Crown Hill Cemetery, both are fantastic areas to explore. Another to add to the list is the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Not only is the museum itself pretty darn amazing, but the grounds are lovely and sprawling, with lots of outdoor artwork and caches to be found.

 

Welcome to Geocaching, and welcome to Indianapolis! We're event junkies in this area, so hopefully we'll get a chance to meet you at a future geo-event. :)
