Circle City

Indiana's capital and most populous city, Indianapolis is best known for its racecar events and impressive museums, and as the hometown of Kurt Vonnegut. Indy, as it's known, owes much of its tourism to conventions and sporting events, but there are plenty of attractions to entertain visitors on vacation year-round. The city's bustling downtown plays host to art galleries, museums, parks, over 200 retail stores, and nearly 300 restaurants. You can visit the city's six official cultural districts via the bike and pedestrian path, decorated with local artwork.

Where to stay in Indianapolis

With limited public transportation in the city, those traveling without a car should consider the location of their accommodations carefully. To stay within walking distance of Indianapolis’ best restaurants and bars, look for a hotel or apartment rental in the arty Mass Ave or Broad Ripple neighborhoods. Downtown lodgings are often more expensive, but provide easy access to Indy’s best-known attractions for those on vacation. Bed and breakfasts in the city’s residential areas provide a healthy dose of Midwestern charm.
