Whenever I travel to different places, I tend to fall in love with the cities. There’s something about the public transportation, hustle and bustle, and local businesses that make me excited to explore. I recently visited Indianapolis and wanted to share my experience. This is the perfect road trip destination because it’s not too far from Chicago and still has a lot to offer. It’s also a great place to stop along the way if you’re headed to Nashville!
What to See:
Soldiers and Sailors Monument/Monument Circle is located in the center of downtown, which is a great place to start your visit and walk around.
Where to Eat:
Garden Table is a farm to table restaurant and juice bar. They have two locations in Indy (Mass Ave. and Broad Ripple). This is a great spot for brunch, dinner or to grab some appetizers.
Top: Blooming Jelly on Amazon can be found here.
Ring: Icing- similar style can be found here.
Where to Drink:
Easley Winery offers wine tastings and tours. Wine tastings are available daily and cost $5.00. Tours are available Saturday and Sundays at 12:00pm and 1:00pm.
Where to Stay:
There are a lot of hotel options in downtown Indy. Another great option is Airbnb. They have some cute “retreat” spots available. Some popular ones:
Mural outside The Alexander hotel. Bonus if you are driving because it’s in a parking lot (except it is a private area so grab your photo quickly).
Now it’s time to book your visit to Indianapolis!
