Ever heard of ‘Nap Town’ or ‘Circle City’? Both of these unusual monikers refer to Indiana’s capital city, Indianapolis. Residents these days are beginning to think of Indianapolis as the Silicon Valley of the Midwest, after Forbes ranked it no. 24 for Best Places for Business and Careers (thanks to plentiful jobs in emerging technology fields). But job availability isn’t the only reason to love Indy. The city has a vibrant, culturally diverse core, where you’ll find unexpected delights from food to art to architecture around every corner.
Racing fans love Indianapolis for being the home of the greatest racing spectacle in the world, the Indy 500, while football fans love cheering on the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. Craft beer fans will find an endless number of breweries to try, while art lovers will adore the Indianapolis Museum of Art for its year-round free admission, outdoor summer movies, and strolling gardens – not to mention world renowned art displays. Winters may be rough, but that won’t stop visitors from enjoying downtown Indianapolis thanks to the city’s skywalk system, which allows pedestrians to travel between major entertainment and shopping destinations without going outside. During the warmer months, there’s plenty to enjoy outside, including the Cultural Trail (walking and biking paths lined with art), a canal featuring European-style pedestrian bridges and gondolas, and numerous parks. No matter the time of year, you’ll be right at home in Indianapolis when you stay in lodging provided by National Corporate Housing.
