Apr 23, 2013 - Beach time in Indianapolis

The weather is getting warmer and is about time to get ready for summer. The best place to enjoy the warmth of the Sun is none other than the beach, Eagle Creek Park, the only swimming beach within the borders of Indianapolis. So tell your charter bus driver to lead you there while you are in Indianapolis.
This beautiful sandy beach is hidden on the banks of Eagle Creek Reservoir within an enclosed swimming area. Find a spot near the sand play area or playground area, set those beach towel and lie down and relax. Or enjoy a picnic luncheon underneath the tree’s shadow. If you like volleyball, you will sure love the volleyball area where you can stretch those muscles of yours or take a plunge to workout that body at the dedicated lap lane. There is also a little area which has been blocked off for children where it goes no deeper than three feet.

Charter a bus 30 minutes from the northeastern section of Indianapolis and it will lead you to Noblesville. Home to Morse Park and Beach within Hamilton County. Park visitors will get to enjoy features such as the beach, disc golf course, softball fields, picnic shelters and a playground. The beach is well taken care of and provides visitors a bathhouse with amenities such as lockers, showers and restrooms to get ready. You can sunbathe, play volleyball and even fish at the beach but admission is required for the park entry.

If you find the weather is still too chilly, there are several indoor beach alternatives for charter bus visitors such as the Krannert Park and Indy Island. The city-run indoor water park, Indy Island, features water playhouse with slides, sprays and geysers. A larger slide empties into the leisure pool and there is also an adults-only spa available. While the Krannert Park has an indoor pool with both open and lap swim times.

The next nearest beach from Indianapolis is 65 miles away down south by charter bus, the Lake Monroe in Bloomington. The largest inland lake in the state with three swimming beaches such as Hardin Ridge, Fairfax State Recreation and Paynetown State Recreation Area.

Spend some time on the beach and by the water when you’re in Indianapolis on a charter bus visit. Charter Bus Indianapolis can help you organize all your charter bu transport needs, providing you with friendly service and fully equipped charter buses.
