Visiting Indy...

by RonaaRoo

Hello everyone! My parents and I may be visiting Indy next weekend (Labor day weekend). I've been looking online for hotels, and I found several that seem nice, but since I'm not from Indy, I don't know what the area is like. What areas of the Metro area should I stay in, and which areas should I stay out of? Thanks!

Re: Visiting Indy...

by hisgirlfriday

Hi,
I would suggest the North/Northeast part of the city. The Castleton or Broad Ripple area is probably the best. There are nice restuarants and shopping in both areas. It's only minutes to downtown Indy. Dowtown is nice too! My family usually stays at Union Station. (staff is super nice, heated pool, huge hot tub, room service was one of the best, interesting atmosphere) Most things are within walking distance from each other. Museams, restaurants, circle center mall, sports stuff, cinemas. There are a lot of one way streets downtown, but parking is cheap and parking garages are plentiful.
I would stay away from the eastern and western (Speedway area) part of the city. High crime areas, plus it's just plain boring. It's pretty dull even in the southern part of the city.
Hope this helps.

I would say the best accomidations are right downtown. Everything is there and they are relatively cheap for a big city. You might even look on the outsides of Indianapolis. Cities like Carmel, Greenwood, Broad Ripple, etc are all cheap alternatives and all within a 10 minute drive to the city.

Travel Tips for Indianapolis

Indianapolis is a clean and...

by hcameron

Indianapolis is a clean and safe city. The people are very nice. A must see is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum. Indianapolis is truly the home of motor sport racing. The city hosts the largest open wheel championship racing event (Indy 500), the biggest prize for Nascar racing (Brickyard 400) and now one of the biggest Formula 1 races in the world. If that isn't enough, the US National Drag Races are held just outside of Indianapolis.

Downtown Indianapolis is very nice. Circle Center Mall is located within walking distances to the RCA Dome (NFL Colts), Conseco Field House (NBA Pacers) and my favorite, the fantastic new (but is styled like an old time outdoor) baseball stadium which is the home of the AAA Indianapolis Indians. (The tickets are cheap, the beer is great, the hotdogs are so-so. The baseball is super fun and I am not even a big baseball fan. If you get to Indy in the summer, go for the baseball.

Other stuff. The Indianapolis Childrens Museum is one of the best childrens museums in the country. I can vouch that it is fun for grownups too. It is interactive and takes a full day to go through it. It is located on North Meridian St. It is a cab ride or short drive from downtown.

There are many other activities that are worthwhile during your stay. One is the Eideljorge (SP?) museum which specializes in Western Art. I travel so much that what I miss about the city may seem a bit weird but here goes. Indianapolis does not have the major traffic headaches that most cities do. Even at rush hour it isn't bad. I live on the opposite side of town from the airport and I plan for a 25 minute drive. The town has over 2 million people so it is not small. It is just easy to get around. (Except for the Castleton area!)

I miss the attitude of the people. People from the midwest are generally very courteous and friendly. Indy is no exception.

Lockerbie Square

by sambarnett

   Lockerbie Square. Bounded by New York, East, Davidson and Michigan Streets, Lockerbie Square is a neighborhood of cute Victorian frame houses located about ten minutes by foot northeast of the heart of Indianapolis. Bucking the trend of suburban flight, the area was gentrified in the late '60 and early seventies and today provides a respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown Indy despite its close proximity.
   The main attraction in Lockerbie Square is the James Whitcomb Riley house, a state historic site located at 528 Lockerbie Street. It was where the famed Indiana poet spent the last two decades of his life.

Perfect Place for Lunch Downtown Indianapolis

by deecat about Nordstrom's Grill

Jill and I enjoyed eating at Nordstrom's Grill so much that we ate there twice!

It's a great spot for lunch because it is so convenient when you are in the inner city shopping or touring.
And, it doesn't hurt that you have to walk through the wonderful Nordstrom's Department Store. There is also a street entry, but who needs it when you can see the store?

The decor is beautiful and relaxing with all the dark wood and gorgeous large bar. The bathroom is very clean and nice also.

Jill and I are neither big eaters, so we shared. We ordered a turkey and cheese grilled sandwich and a delicious 4-cheese pasta (that is to die for). They also have wonderful lemonade.

The first time we were there was better than the second, and we decided that it was because of the great waitress we had the first time. Her presentation of the food was just perfect. She gave us individual dishes for our "split" meal.
The young waiter the second time just put down one plate for the sandwich and one plate for the pasta. we had to ask for more plates and a knife to cut the sandwich.

So, if you are ever in Indie downtown, stop in at Nordstrom's Grill. You won't regret it.

Christ Episcopal Church on Monument Circle

by atufft

On the north side of Monument Circle stands the Christ Episcopal Church, which standing in the shadows of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, and a very tall modern building behind it. The Episcopal Church is by far the oldest structure on Monument Circle, having a cornerstone that was laid in 1837, and a spire that was added no later than 1869. Thus, for some 60 years, the Soldiers and Sailors Monument was not the major feature of Monument Circle, while this venerable old church was. Needless to say, Indiana is dominated by Protestant Christian Churches. The church architecture in this case is described as of the English Gothic Style, and though I didn't do so, it's recommended that visitors take time to look inside: Flying arches of age-darkened wood sweep beneath the vaulted roof. Pews and chancel are styled after those of early English cathedrals.*

Indianapolis Museum of Art

by Jim_Eliason

This brand new museum is just now opening (dec 2005) in a fantastic new building. Not all the galleries will open until the end of 2006. The current exhibit of American Art is OK but not worth a special visit. Once the european galleries are open this should be a first class art museum.
