  2. You’ll get a taste of what’s cooking in this culinary capital, “the most underrated food city in the U.S.” according to Condé Nast Traveler.
  3. The “#1 Airport in North America” five years running makes air travel enjoyable again.
  4. Unmatched connectivity, walkability, and convenience will delight your logistics-oriented mind.
  5. A scenic central canal, world-renowned cultural trail, and engaging civic spaces will have you saying “I never knew!”
  6. You’ll be able to check “zip around the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway” off your bucket list.
  7. More than $150 million in recent hotel upgrades and $3 billion in tourism infrastructure stand ready to roll out the red carpet.
  8. You’ll be among the first to preview major new developments propelling the city forward.
