The city branches into diverse neighbourhoods scattered with craft breweries, bars and restaurants serving creative dishes and local favourites, like shrimp cocktail and breaded pork tenderloin sandwich.

It is easy to find an Indianapolis hostel with a shared kitchen, air con for added comfort and even bike rental to help you get around.
Get to know Indianapolis by traversing its neighbourhoods.

Spend time at wine markets or browse stores selling an eclectic mix of comics, fashion and musical instruments. To the north are the dazzling lights of the Broad Ripple district. A favourite for nights out, the streets here are lined with buzzing restaurants, bars and clubs.
There's a variety of things to do in Indianapolis. Wander or cycle the urban Monon Trail, an abandoned rail trail that's now paved and passes attractions like the Indianapolis Art Center, Indiana State Fairgrounds and craft breweries. Be part of the thriving live music scene in the city's bars and performance spaces or try and spot the next big league player at Victory Field baseball park.
