When it comes to sports, Indiana is legendary.

Not only was the Hoosier state home to basketball legends including Louie Dampier and Larry Bird, but the nation's first professional baseball game took place in Fort Wayne. The state capital is also home to the thrilling Indianapolis 500, where drivers speed around the track at over 200 miles per hour.

But Indiana has plenty to offer non-sports fans, too, from its thriving agriculture to its powerful automotive industry. Its biggest cities include Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, and Evansville, among others.
