A Sports Lover’s Dream

Indianapolis is a natural destination for people who love sports, whether amateur, collegiate, or professional. Cheer on the NBA Pacers, WNBA Fever, or USHL Ice at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Tour the home of the NFL Colts and Super Bowl 2012, Lucas Oil Stadium. Or catch a baseball game at Victory Field, which Sports Illustrated named the best minor league ballpark in America.


Indianapolis contains six thriving and distinct Cultural Districts, each offering an eclectic mix of shopping, dining and entertainment. The city’s newest amenity, the Cultural Trail, is a bicycle and pedestrian path that winds through downtown connecting visitors with these unique neighborhoods.


Indianapolis offers over 250 diverse dining options for all palates and price points. With its rich soil and surrounding agriculture, Indy has been supporting farm-to-table restaurants for decades, with local farmers providing the freshest in produce and protein to menus. International fare, world-famous steakhouses, and sports bars with plenty of televisions for viewing the big game are also just around the corner.


Indianapolis offers a variety of shopping destinations from the largest mall in Indiana to small, independent boutiques. The four-story Circle Centre Mall is the shopping hub of downtown with over 100 specialty shops and dining options. The mall is easily accessible, as it’s connected via skywalk to hotels and the convention center and offers plenty of affordable underground parking. On the north side of Indianapolis are two more major shopping centers, Castleton Square Mall – anchored by four department stores, and The Fashion Mall at Keystone that offers high-end retailers and dining.  When the work day is over and the clock reads 5 pm, Indianapolis comes alive with hundreds of places for good times, good drinks, and good conversation. From happy hour hotspots to late night live music venues, attendees will find themselves in an activated downtown with endless entertainment and networking options conveniently close by.


Indianapolis is home to more memorials honoring our nation’s veterans than any other city in the United States, second only to Washington, D.C. Acres upon acres are dedicated to honoring and remembering past heroes.
