Indianapolis may be known best for the Indianapolis 500 and other racing events, but this city has much more to offer than just fast cars. Professional sports teams, cultural attractions, and large urban parks are a few things that attract visitors to the city each year. Plan your trip by making hotel reservations and searching for discounted tickets for attractions on Orbitz.com. �
Flying into Indianapolis will bring you into Indianapolis International Airport, which is located about twelve miles southwest of downtown Indianapolis, just off I-70. In addition to being a busy passenger airport that serves over seven million passengers annually, Indianapolis International Airport is also home to the second-largest FedEx Express operation in the world.
The airport has a one-stop location on the first level of the parking garage for all your transportation needs, including rental vehicles, taxi service, and public transportation. The city bus service, IndyGo, offers forty-five-minute rides to the downtown area for a fare of $1.75 per ride. Several local hotels also offer free shuttle service from the airport; if you plan to stay in an area hotel during your stay, ask if this service is available when you make your reservation. If you plan to take a fifteen-minute taxi ride to the downtown area instead, there is a minimum fare of $15 for taxis leaving the airport, regardless of the distance.
Indianapolis is a typical Midwestern city, feeling each of the four seasons in full. Average highs reach the mid-80s with plenty of sunshine during the summer months of June through August, so pack light clothing and sunscreen if you plan to visit during this time of year. Lows can dip below zero degrees Fahrenheit during the colder months, so pack warm outerwear for winter vacations. Late summer and early fall see pleasant weather for outdoor activities, but average temperatures can fluctuate more than twenty degrees throughout the day, so dressing in layers is a good idea. �
Indianapolis is a prime destination spot for sports lovers. It is known to racing fans around the world for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where the Indianapolis 500 and other major racing events are held annually. The Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers play there as well, giving football and basketball fans someone to cheer for. Indianapolis also holds plenty for music lovers to see and do while visiting; the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra plays there, and the city is also the headquarters for Drum Corps International. Professional sports teams and events make Indianapolis a popular destination spot during summer and fall, when fans want to watch races and sports games. If you travel to the city during these times, plan your hotel stay in advance to make sure your favorite hotel isn�t filled to capacity. If you plan to visit indoor attractions like the largest children�s museum in the world, travelling during the late winter or early spring can make it easier to find discounted rates at hotels.
With so many entertainment options to choose from, your days in Indianapolis are sure to be filled with plenty to do. Whether you are travelling to Indianapolis for the sports or the culture, Orbitz.com can help you plan your vacation in advance, so you can enjoy your time in this popular Midwest location.�
