As travelers arrive in Indianapolis, the stage is immediately set by the new Indianapolis International Airport, the first airport designed and built after 9/11. It was recently ranked Number 1 in customer satisfaction among all America’s airports by J.D. Power and Associates. MSN Travel called it “amazing.” And it’s a short 15 minutes from downtown.
Indianapolis, home of the largest single sporting event -the Indianapolis 500, its pulse races at Monument Circle, a European-style plaza where traffic rumbles around the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Monument. Built in 1902 out of Indiana limestone, it got a major facelift in 2011, included a refurbishing of Victory, the 38-foot bronze statue that reigns from the top. Climb the steps or take the elevator to the observation area at the top of the 284-foot landmark, and visit the Civil War museum in the lower level.
Indianapolis contains six thriving and distinct Cultural Districts, each offering an eclectic mix of shopping, dining and entertainment. The city’s newest amenity, the Cultural Trail, is a bicycle and pedestrian path that winds through downtown connecting visitors with these unique neighborhoods.
One such district is White River State Park where you’ll find activities ranging from the NCAA Hall of Champions to the nationally renowned Eiteljorg Museum of Native American and Western Art. Running, strolling, paddle-boating and the renting of Segways and bikes are all right there. That’s not to mention Victory Field, the Minor League ballpark Sports Illustrated called the nation’s best.
As for Dining in Indy, low-price-but-popular chain restaurants (from Subway to Quizno’s) sit a few doors away from high-end very-few-in-the-country chain restaurants (from Palomino and Oceanaire to Weber Grill and Fogo de Chão). And of course, there’s our one-of-a-kinds: for example, St. Elmo’s and its “cousin” restaurant, Harry and Izzy’s—at either one you can experience what the Travel Channel called “World’s Hottest Meal,” the famous St. Elmo’s Shrimp Cocktail.
