Things to Do:

Experience the Excitement of Downtown Indianapolis
 
Downtown Indy has a little bit of everything to offer. Dive into the city's nightlife scene, where bars, clubs, and music venues cater to a wide range of tastes. Explore major sports and event venues like Lucas Oil Stadium and Gainbridge Fieldhouse, where you can cheer on the Indianapolis Colts or the Indiana Pacers. Catch a concert at the amphitheater overlooking the White River on a summer day. Stroll along the Canal, take a walk down Mass Ave for a little shopping and lunch, or cruise the cultural trail. If that isn't enough, don't miss out on popular tourist attractions such as the Indianapolis Zoo, the Eiteljorg Museum, and the Indiana State Museum. Of course, a day wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the new Bottleworks Garage for a bite to eat.
 

Places to Eat/Drink:

Savor the Flavors of Downtown Indianapolis
 
Condé Nast Traveler named Indianapolis the “Most Underrated Food City in America,” and there’s a reason for that! Indianapolis is a hidden gem in the foodie world. Treat yourself to a legendary dining experience at St. Elmo's Steak House, where historic ambiance and world-class cuisine await. For bold flavors, head to Livery, a restored 1890s building that brings Latin classics to the Midwest (and the best margarita in the city IMO). And for my fellow brunch lovers, don't miss Tupelo Honey. They’re famous for their chicken and waffles, need I say more?
When it comes to cocktails, downtown Indianapolis does not disappoint. Enjoy artfully crafted drinks and small plates at Ball and Biscuit, where pendant bulbs and a speakeasy vibe set the scene. Or immerse yourself in the world of whiskey at The Exchange, a whiskey and craft cocktail bar in an inventive upscale environment.
