Indianapolis is most known for the indy 500 and our football team, the colts. Most people here love one or the other, but most love both. Here in indy We are hoosiers and known for hospitality as well. We love to make others feel welcome, so we are inviting and love to host.

Living in Indianapolis has many perks. We have professional sports teams, active downtown nightlife, and many family friendly activities. I love to cheer for the Colts and watch the Fuel Hockey team dominate the ice. My family and I love to spend time at the Indianapolis Zoo and the Children’s Museum. Fountain square had many pubs that we enjoy as well.

There are three important things you need to know. The Indianapolis 500 really is the most exciting spectacle in racing. People from all over the world visit our city to see to this sporting event. These visitors frequent local bars, restaurants, and hotels increasing our city’s revenue and reputation. The race is so important that you’ll find many major roadways throughout the city closed, so plan ahead if traveling that weekend. Speaking of roadways, the second thing you need to know if you decide to move to Indy is I-465 is insane. I mean no matter what time, day or night you will never be on the road alone. It is a literal circle around Indianapolis and for fun teenagers often spend weekend nights driving around it. The third and final thing you need to know if there is a lot of corn in Indiana. You don’t have to travel far to find it. It is planted in spring and come fall it can make intersections dangerous because you’re unable to see around it.

Indianapolis is known for its heavily fluctuating weather and metropolis area full of unique boutiques, restaurants, second-hand shops, and bar/grill spots. Indianapolis, due to being a big city, is also known to have a high crime rate and precautions should be noted when out late into the evening. Indy traffic can also be extremely hectic and difficult to navigate, usually during the Indy 500 and other large annual events.

Public transportation in Indianapolis only runs downtown and not to the suburbs. There are no subway systems but the IndyGO bus system is new. If you enjoy walking, running, or biking, I suggest the Monon Trail which runs from Downtown to Carmel, Indiana.

Indianapolis is a hidden gem! If you’re looking for an approachable and affordable city, Indy is the place. With miles of downtown biking trails, unique restaurants, and a hip art scene, Indianapolis has a little bit of something for everyone. Take a romantic stroll on the canal, catch a Colts game, or experience the famous Indy 500 race weekend.

They might like to know Indianapolis is a decent sized city with a booming restaurant scene. The downtown of the city is very compact and most businesses are within walking distance. Our suburbs are also top notch one has been named as the best city in America We have many sporting events and expos at the convention center. The schools are great and the jobs plentiful.

Indianapolis, IN is a big city known for hosting the Indy 500 yearly. If you don’t know what that is, you should look it up because Indy residents take it very seriously. For fun, many people hang out at bars and pubs or enjoy concerts and late night entertainment. The people here are friendly, but don’t be surprised if they choose not to engage in conversation with you. Indy residents tend to shy away from people they don’t know.

Indianapolis is the capital of the US state of Indiana. On a map, it appears to lie almost exactly geographically centered between north and south, and east and west. This makes all other locations within the state easy enough to get to, with a drive of no more than about two and one-half hours. I like that about the location because I frequently meet clients in other Indiana cities and towns. Indianapolis is also a more modern city in the last 30 years than at any time before, having a revived downtown (which was once a social hub, then declined for many years) and an enriched reputation for sports, and the arts. The city is governed as part of a unified city-county system, having a City Council that works very closely with the mayor. Indianapolis is called “The Crossroads of America” because major Interstates 65, 69, 70, and 74 crisscross the city, along with multiple US and state highways. From this Indiana hub, one can go in any of the major geographic directions and reach almost any destination.

William, says: 2020

The main highway in our city is I465. It runs in a large circle around Indianapolis and some of the surrounding small towns. There are lots of one way streets, which can be confusing to those not accustomed to city life. If you can successfully navigate the city you can find plenty of restaurants, bars, comedy shows, sporting events or places to go on nice walks.
