INDIANAPOLIS CITY GUIDE
If this is your first visit to Indianapolis, read INDIANAPOLIS TIPS first!

This Web Site shows you the many things to see in Indianapolis and
offers you information on getting around town.

If you are looking for specific things to do on a certain date, check out
one of the Web Sites below.  I have researched all such sites and these
are the best!
Best Web Sites to Find EVENTS In Indianapolis
The Web Site survives for a local alternative newspaper that ended in 2019 after 29 years in
business.  The site now lists many of the musical and arts events going on around Indy.   

This local Web Site, named after our area code,  has a simple interface and produces top
results with minimal fuss.  Just the right amount of information.  Results can be mapped
and are all on one page, meaning you may have to scroll.


This national Web Site also has an easy interface and concerns itself only with events.  
Has 7 categories and 24 subcategories you can search by.  Choosing time frame is easy,
just choose "Today", "This Week", "This Weekend" or "This Month".  You can search by
venue or artist.

This local Web Site caters to more than just events - restaurants, hotels and maps.  This is
why the interface is a little too busy, i.e. harder to use for someone just looking for where
the action is tonight.  It allows user to select very specific locations - by side of town,
neighborhoods and surrounding towns.  The map feature will only show 10 events per
map, making you view multiple maps.

The old Coke Bottling building and surrounding area at the end of Mass Ave,  is being turned
into a shopping mecca.  There will be restaurants, entertainment and retail shops as well as
Indy's first food hall.

The 500-seat food hall will house 26 places to eat, drink and shop for food, with openings
scheduled to begin this fall.

A rooftop bar, stores, a bowling alley and a movie theater are also part of the overall
Bottleworks District project.

The $300 million, 12-acre complex, 850 Massachusetts Ave., includes a hotel, office spaces
and a 240 condo and apartment units.
