The four of us did the walk down to the capital. A pleasant and enjoyable experience. Saw the battleship Indianapolis memorial as well. You can also rent a gondola to pedal on the canal, just in the afternoon. Bikes are also available as well.

Pink Fountain to honor breast cancer awareness. Awesome gesture. Paddle boats available to rent. Staff friendly and informative. Saw people around on benches enjoying the view.

I wish there were more restaurants, etc. on the canal, but it's a great place for a walk with some monuments, rental pedal boats, and several attractions like the NCAA Hall of Champions and the zoo nearby
