The holiday season is here! Christmas trees are beginning to pop up in home and store windows across Indiana. The stores are getting stocked up on turkeys, green beans, sweet potatoes, and everything else you need for those memorable family meals. If you’re looking for holiday day-trip ideas, ABC Auto Van & RV Rental gives you three Indianapolis holiday attractions you may want to visit by car rental.

1. Monument Circle Christmas Tree Lighting

Every year, Indiana residents and visitors love to gather in downtown Indianapolis at the Soldiers’ & Sailors’ Monument for the Circle of Lights Christmas Tree Lighting. This year, the lighting event takes place on November 28 at 6 pm. You’ll want to find a parking space for your car rental earlier in the day, but then you can enjoy some of the food and shopping downtown Indy has to offer until it’s time to claim your spot for the lighting.

2. Holiday Shopping at Keystone Fashion Mall

If you’re looking for the best brand names and styles for your holiday gifts, Keystone Fashion Mall is where you want to go. This Indianapolis shopping center has stores ranging from the Apple store and Anthropologie to Crate and Barrel. You can find something for everyone on your shopping list. You can also catch an independent film or documentary at the Keystone Art Cinema or grab a bit to eat at The Cheesecake Factor or Maggiano’s.

3. Christmas at the Zoo

In 1967, the Indianapolis Zoo became the first zoo in the nation to host a holiday event. Since then, the Indianapolis Zoo has developed a rich experience for zoo visitors, including holiday lighting, visits with Santa, caroling, and more. To get the Christmas at the Zoo dates and admission information, check out the Indianapolis Zoo website. Note that you will want to arrive early to get a spot for your car rental and enjoy all the zoo has to offer.
