Note:  Downtown Indy is a very "walk friendly" place which includes a skywalk and tunnel system that
         connects hotels with restaurants, shopping, entertainment and more, while keeping you out of any
         inclement weather.
IF you will be doing much traveling, such as across the city every day, or if you will be traveling to other
 nearby cities, renting a car will be much cheaper than hiring a taxi.
