Indy....Nap Town..Home of the Indy 500! Its the big city...without being too big!
To make navigating the city easy there are twelve hotels conveniently linked by skywalk to Lucas Oil Stadium, the Indiana Convention Center, and Circle Centre mall. Step outside and discover an easy walk to White River State Park with 250 acres of greenspace, the scenic Central Canal, and a collection of Indy’s top attractions. Meet orangutans at the Indianapolis Zoo, journey westward at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians & Western Art, or see a show under the stars at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park.
Urban explorers can also stroll to a collection of monuments and memorials rivaled only by Washington DC. Be sure to get a photo at Monument Circle, the physical and spiritual heart of the city. Eager for a cultural encounter? Take a short drive to the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields, where the lush grounds are the perfect complement to the expansive galleries. If you have kids, a trip to Indy isn’t complete without a visit to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the largest children’s museum in the world.
Want to experience Indy like a local? Hop on a Pacers Bikeshare bike and ride the Indianapolis Cultural Trail to Mass Ave, a progressive neighborhood also known as the Theater District, or Fountain Square, with its retro vibe and live music venues. Eat and drink your way through nearby Fletcher Place where standout restaurants Milktooth and Bluebeard are drawing national attention to Indy’s food scene.
Speaking of food, you’ll want to clear your sinuses with the world famous and ultra-spicy shrimp cocktail at St. Elmo Steak House, recognized as an ‘American Classic’ by the James Beard Foundation. Or, treat yourself to a towering Reuben at Shapiro’s, which USA Today called one of America’s greatest delis.
Indy has a thriving local music and theater scenes, while welcoming touring shows of all kinds. And in a city that built its reputation on sports both amateur and professional, you'll almost always find some sort of competition going on. As host of the world's largest single-day sporting event (the Indianapolis 500)—Indy knows how to show guests a good time.
Besides the downtown, there are many, many great neighborhoods and areas within Indy to call home....each with its own flavor and highlights.
