One of my favorite cities in the country is Indianapolis. A town often home to large events and sport enthusiasts alike, I find this city to be very unique and fun filled. Every time I visit I always have a great time. Now, you may be thinking what is there to do in Indiana? Well I am going to tell you, so you can ensure that your next stop in Indy is a great one.
1. If you are to visit Indianapolis, I recommend you go for a sporting event. This is when the streets are most lively and the city is booming with energy. Most recently, I visited for the Big Ten Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium. During these times, there are tons of things to do for fans and visitors. Such as school pep rallies, Fan Fest, College Gameday, and much more!
2. One of the great things about the city of Indianapolis is that you can walk everywhere. Most of the city and its hotels are connected by indoor pathways which lead to a mall in the center. This place is called Circle Centre. Circle Centre is the name of the mall, pathways, and large city circle in Indy. All of these places are within less than a ten minute walk, and are a wonderful sight to see. You will be entertained for hours.
3. If you are a large sports fan like me, I recommend that you consider a stop to the NCAA Hall of Champions. This museum is full of information on the history, universities, and sports involved in the NCAA. There are plenty of exhibits and hands on activities.
4. You can’t visit Indianapolis without eating at the world famous St. Elmo’s. Known for their delicious steaks and famous shrimp cocktails, this restaurant is definitely one of my favorites. The old fashioned décor will take you back in time. However, this restaurant is a bit pricey. This should not turn you away, you will not be disappointed. Because of it’s popularity, St. Elmo’s is almost always sold out. If this is the case, make sure you stop by Harry and Izzy’s next door, which has the same owners and a lot of the same menu items.
As you can see, there is plenty to see, do, and eat in Indy. This city is an easy drive for most, making it a fun weekend getaway. If you haven’t visited before you definitely should. You will not be disappointed. I love it here and I always look forward to coming.
