The capital of Indiana, Indianapolis offers a rich mix of history, culture, and modern entertainment. If you love race cars and black and white checkered flags, this is the place for you. Home to all four seasons, you can plan your trip to this Midwestern city around the weather. Experienced Northerners certainly won't be scared away by the chance of snow in January, while outdoor lovers may opt for the more welcoming temperatures of spring and fall.
Out and About in Indianapolis
The Indy 500 and Colts football games may entice you to the Racing Capital of the World, but don't limit yourself to being a spectator in Indianapolis. Staying at one of the downtown Indianapolis hotels puts you close to the Mass Ave Arts District, White River State Park, and Circle Centre.
When the weather is not ideal for swimming outside, you can load up on outdoor activities or visit an indoor waterpark. If you are booking hotels in Indianapolis with children, The Children's Museum of Indianapolis and Conner Prairie Interactive History Park are sure to entertain. Add in cultural experiences at the Indiana State Capitol, Indianapolis Art Center, and the Victorian homes of Lockerbie for a balanced trip that captures the many facets of Indianapolis. The hardest part will be picking just one of the impressive Indianapolis hotels for your stay.
Eating and Drinking
Locally sourced ingredients and the craft cocktails at Nourish offer a great introduction to the Indianapolis dining scene. Breweries are quite popular in the city too, so include a visit to a church-turned-brewery and restaurant at the St. Joseph Brewery & Public House, or visit the welcoming Bent Rail Brewery for grub, beer, and arcade games.
