The NY Times Chose Indy as one of 52 Places to Go in 2014
"An urban cycling model has arrived in Indianapolis: the new $63 million,
eight-mile bike-friendly Indy Cultural Trail. The path connects five downtown
neighborhoods, including arty Fountain Square, to top downtown sites, including
the Capitol Building, City Market and White River State Park, a 250-acre park that
hosts the Indianapolis Zoo and six more major attractions. Bicycles can be rented
along the paved and lighted pathway, allowing riders to cruise past public art,
including a motion-activated fireflylike swarm of LED lights. City officials say that
planners from Cologne, Germany, to Portland, Ore., have come to see how the city
most famous for a 500-mile car race managed to swap auto for bike lanes and still
keep everything rolling smoothly."
Lonely Planet Called Indy America's Most Surprising City
Inventor of Wonder Bread and nicknamed 'Naptown,' Indiana's state
capital has long had a reputation as a bland snooze. But now – as

|Indianapolis is America's best city for renters in 2017
Indianapolis tops Forbes' list of the best cities for renters this year thanks to
astonishingly low average monthly rents and high levels of affordability.
The average Indianapolis rent is just $806, eating up a mere 17 percent of the
median household income for the city. That makes Indianapolis the cheapest
place to rent of the cities we analyzed and the second most affordable. Only
Kansas City, Mo., has a better rental affordability score at 16% of income.
And Indianapolis has a 5.6% apartment vacancy rate, which makes it easier for
renters to find a place and harder for landlords to hike prices -- rent increased
just 2.5% last year in the city.
