  • Very old buildings and not aesthetically pleasing grounds in addition to being a high crime area. And if you think this is one of the best state fairs in the country, you obviously haven't lived in very many states. Visit the Minnesota State Fair in St Paul. Beautiful art deco buildings, lots of large, mature trees/landscaping plus the second largest state fair in the country. Big focus on the arts and other musical acts that aren''t country western. Minnesota State Fair also has a natural resources exhibit that puts the Indiana State Fair's to shame.
  • It is a wonderful fairgrounds with a lot to offer nearly everyone of any interest. The state fair is one of the best around and they have thousands of events throughout the year. When winter is harsh this place always has something indoors with plenty of heat!
  • There is always something going on at the fairgrounds! Always clean and plenty of people around if you need help.
  • Deep fry it, put it on a stick and charge too much for it. What else could you possibly want? Also they have some neat event, like the mecum auction which is a blast.
  • We were here fornthe 4 wheel drive Jamboree. Lots of parking. Easy to find. Even in lots of traffic easy to get in and out.

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.
