I think Indianapolis is a lovely city but I have to say it is more of working city than a work and play city. There isn't a lot to do unless you are there for a specific event. There are a lot of restaurants but they are mostly chains and we got the vibe it was a city where most people work and go home. We were there over Thanksgiving, so that may be a factor but in the many other times we have driven through Indianapolis we found nothing too impressive about it at no lack of trying.
