One Day in Indianapolis: Travel Itinerary


Being the home of two major league sports teams (the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers) and the largest one day sporting event in the world (the Indy 500), there's no denying that Indianapolis is a city that revolves around sports, but I'm here to tell you that there is more to this bustling midwest city than championship rings and race cars. We recently had the opportunity to explore Indianapolis for the day and wanted to share our itinerary with you.
