Indianapolis is known for its football, fast cars, and at least one famous David Letterman. But that’s not all that makes Indiana’s capital great. Check out some things that make Indianapolis a city worth visiting.
If you’re visiting in June, make a stop at the annual Marion County Fair — a 9-day family-friendly event featuring rides, rodeos, and live performances by humans and animals alike. Indianapolis is home to two major sports teams: Pacers (basketball) and Colts (footballs), with the latter playing in the impressive Lucas Oil Stadium. Get your thrills watching cars race at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway, home to the Indy 500 and NASCAR’s Brickyard 400. (Kids 12 and over can even have the opportunity to ride with a pro driver by signing up for the Indy Racing Experience). For the nature lover, head out to Eagle Creek Park where you can ride the zipline and take part in other activities among the trees.
Beat the summer heat by heading south to Freedom Springs Aquatics Park in Greenwood. Ride two hours north to spend a day (or two!) on Lake Michigan’s South Shore, featuring everything from beaches and biking trails to antique shopping and lakefront casinos. Or spend a day in Lafayette, a town just northwest of Indianapolis, home to historic architecture, a lively art scene, and a variety of street festivals (Beer fest! Jazz fest! Wabash River fest!) happening year-round.
A downtown rental puts you right in the middle of the action with easy access to food and entertainment, as all as the many activities happening around Monument Circle. If you enjoy some high-end shopping, book a room in Northeast Indianapolis, home to two of the city’s biggest malls: Fashion at Keystone and Central Court. For a cozier vibe, try a small home rental in Broad Ripple Village. Or head south to the artsy lofts of Fountain Square. Wherever you decide to stay, you can compare rentals by price, reviews, ratings and more on Tripping. Book your Indianapolis vacation rental today!
While public transportation (IndyGo) is an option, Indianapolis has gotten rave reviews for being a bike-friendly town, thanks to the its flat landscape and no shortage of bike paths (check out the famous Cultural Trail). The Blue Indy electric-only car service allows visitors to easily rent one of their cars parked all around the city at any time of the day — and you only get charged for the time used. And for those heading to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, try their shuttle service with pickups in select locations.
