My Indianapolis Favorites

Downtown Indy

When July rolls around I will have officially lived in Indianapolis for one year. It definitely took me a while to get acclimated to living in the Midwest. Plus I was starting my first full time job and there was a lot going on in my life. I really didn’t get around to seeing Indy until 2018 and I’m so glad I did! Indianapolis isn’t a large city by any means, but it has lots of great neighborhoods and outdoor space. I love walking around downtown or on Mass Ave and I just recently went hiking right outside the city. I know I won’t live here forever, but I’m starting to really enjoy my time in Indy and I think everyone could if they gave it a chance!

I’ve outlined some of my favorite places below. I will say that the north side of Indy (Zionsville, Fishers, and Carmel) have a lot of great restaurants and shopping, but I don’t spend a lot of time up there. I live on the south side and work downtown so it’s pretty out of my way. If you’re looking for upscale suburbia with the shopping to match the north side is where you need to be.

This is by no means a comprehensive list so I will be adding to it as I continue to explore and try new places.

Breweries
  • St. Joseph Brewery – Lockerbie Square – It’s a brewery in an old catholic church…enough said.
  • Sun King Brewery – East Downtown – Largest brewery in Indianapolis, second largest in the state! You’ve got to try the classics – Osiris Pale Ale and Sunlight Cream Ale. My personal favorite is the Wee Ma Scottish Ale. Wash down some charcuterie, play some board games, and take home a growler full of hometown brew.
