Snore-evoking? Think again!

The “Crossroads of America” is not that exciting to visit, despite it being the “Racing Capital of the World,” many refer to Indy as “Nap Town.” But with a little effort, you can create a memorable Indianapolis travel guide. Like any large metropolis, Indianapolis has a lot to offer in terms of history, architecture and arts. In terms of entertainment, the city features a different festival every month, and a number of great music venues, including Verizon Wireless Music Center, Indy’s largest outdoors amphitheater. There are many recreational options as well - green parks, velodrome tracks, ice skating, affordable golfing, and much more.
