Where Indianapolis - - News -

W hen sum m er­tim e hits, all we can think aboutis jump­ing on a boat and sun­ning on the stern. Good thing In­di­anapo- lis has a few docks right nearby. For a lux­u­ri­ous ex­pe­ri­ence,Geist Reser­voir (just 20 min­utes from down­town) is sur- rounded by an up­scale neigh­bor­hood of lake­front homes (11695 Fall Creek Rd., 317.849.8455, mari­nalim­ited.com). Full ma­rina ser­vices are at hand, in­clud­ing slip rentals, boat launch­ing, gaso­line and re­pairs, so you can get on the wa­ter faster and smoother for shing or swim­ming. There are also pon­toon or kayak rentals, for when you’d rather have a work­out o dry land. Sixty one-acre Broad Rip­ple Park has a boat ramp lead­ing right­into the White River, mak­ing it easy to go from pic­nick­ing to sight­see­ing (1550 Broad Rip­ple Ave., 317.327.7161, broad­rip­plepark. org). For a mel­low river cruise, hop on a pad­dle wheel boat ride through Broad Rip­ple Boat Com­pany (7108 Fitch Ave., 317.254.2628, broad­rip­ple­boatco.com). The two-story vin­tage ves­sel is per­fect for tak- ing in the sum­mer breeze, or a meal on a din­ner cruise.
