Where to stay in Indianapolis
There are so many great places to stay in the downtown area of the city. The Hyatt with it’s famous Bird’s nest revolving restaurant. The Westin whom is home to Shula’s steakhouse. The new J.W. Marriott with it’s unique curved building with spectacular views over Victory Field, home to the Indianapolis Indians. But if you are wanting to experience fun, then a night in a train car at Union Station at Crowne plaza Hotel is a dream come true for many. Union Station where Thomas Edison was fired from for too many “useless” experiments. Also housed Abraham Lincoln 3 times. Union Station was also used as part of the underground railroad
There are also many great suburbs to stay in around Indy such as Zionsville, Avon, Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville, and Greenwood.
What to do in Indy
Indianapolis has not been referred to as the city that never sleeps, in fact it has been called Naptown by those whom have never visited it. But one thing for sure is there is so much to do for any type of pleasure seeker. From test cars around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the museum for the Indy 500. The city also has the largest children’s museum in the country. Downtown is home to the NCAA basketball hall of fame and headquarters. Also the city has a beautiful arts museum, a state museum, and a wonderful zoo.
Definitely a sports town, the Indianapolis Pacers and the Colts play their games right downtown at market square arena and Lucas Oil Stadium.

Steaks can be the name of the game in Indy food culture as well as food trucks. St. Elmo’s steakhouse is the most recognized along with Shula’s, Sullivans, Petterson’s, Capital Grille, Ruth’s Chris, and Morton’s.
The city continues to change and grow. Obviously for the better. Can’t wait to see the future of Indy.
