The iconic 500-mile race may have put Indianapolis on the map…and seemingly annual sports tournament championships may have kept it there. But there is much more to the Crossroads of America than chugging milk in the winner’s circle, college basketball fanaticism, and rocket-arm quarterbacks. With a thriving arts district, welcoming outdoor spaces, and a restaurant for every palette, you and your pet will want to explore every bit of this Midwestern melting pot. When you and Sir Barks-a-Lot are in Indianapolis, pet-friendly hotels like the Omni Severin, allow you to be close to all there is to see and do in the area. Whether you are planning on visiting the Brickyard or simply hitting the bricks for a stroll with your canine companion around one of its many friendly neighborhoods, your Indianapolis getaway has a new memory waiting for you around every turn.
Once you touch down, you and your pup will probably be in a hurry to get to your pet-friendly hotel in Indianapolis. Unless you are staying at the Red Roof Inn & Suites near the airport, you’ll most likely need to go downtown. The easiest way to get from the airport into central Indianapolis is to take Interstate 70. Colonel H. Weir Cook Memorial Drive takes you from the rental car lot right to the highway. From there, it is a short 12-mile trek to Monument Circle in the heart of downtown. If you are not renting a vehicle, taxis, shuttle buses, and hotel courtesy vans are also available. Your barking buddy may even get to ride shotgun.
With so many dog friendly hotels in Indianapolis, you know there are going to be a lot of activities for you and your four-legged family member. From parks to pictures, here are some of our favorites (make sure to bring extra doggie treats; it may be a big day):
When you book your vacation to Indianapolis with Travelocity, you’ll get a great deal on your accommodations. You might even save enough to buy an Indy racing experience where you and Sir Barks-a-Lot can cruise around the motor speedway at tongue-flapping speed. Chances are, though, he’ll have to watch you burn rubber from pit row.
