If you want to get your heart racing, bring your girl to Indianapolis. Known as the “Racing Capital of the World”, Indianapolis is the perfect Midwestern getaway for car enthusiasts and race lovers of all kinds. As is only fitting for the city known as the Crossroads of America, Indianapolis has a little something for everyone, whether you love chowing down at a sports bar or taking in some live theater.
Indianapolis is a cyclist’s dream city. Rent a pair of bikes (or bring your own) and spend a day exploring the city from atop two wheels, via the Monon Trail, the Central Canal, or the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, which links all five districts of the city as well as its entire greenway system. If you are looking for a wheeled adventure that moves a little faster, pay a visit to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the world-famous Indy 500.
Architecture lovers must make a stop at the Indian State Capitol. With Corinthian columns and German stained glass windows, the Capitol building is one of the oldest and most beautiful spots in the city. For an equally inspiring vista, stop at the Scottish Rites Cathedral, which has a huge pipe organ and handcrafted stained glass windows.
Indianapolis is steeped in American history, making it the perfect place to take an American history buff or patriot. The Soldiers and Sailors Monument, a huge memorial nearly the size of the Statue of Liberty, commemorates the Civil War, while the Indiana War Memorial boasts a small museum with excellent exhibits on every American war. The American Legion National Headquarters and the Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial make Indianapolis officially the best source of American history in the Midwest. Crown Hill Cemetery, the third largest in the United States, serves as the final resting place for dozens of famous Americans, including President Benjamin Harrison, Colonel Eli Lilly, and the infamous bank robber John Dillinger. You can take a walking tour of the grounds or just explore it yourself.
But for a more romantic time, pack a picnic and head to one of Indianapolis’ famous gardens, like the Oldfields-Lilly House and Garden, the Garfield Park Conservatory, or the White River Gardens. Book a private evening at the Holcomb Observatory and Planetarium and elevate the romantic cliché of a dinner under the stars to a whole new level.
Museum lovers will not run out of things to do in Indianapolis. Besides for stalwarts like the Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art, Indy also has some more quirky exhibits, like the Art Museum of Sports, dedicate to sports-themed art, and the Museum of Miniature Houses. The Indiana Medical History Museum offers creepy fun, while the Conner Prairie Living History Museum offers a taste of life on the Indiana frontier.
Wine and food lovers flock to Indianapolis for the Vintage Indiana Food and Wine Fest, while aficianados of music genres like hip-hop, R&B and soul wait all year for the Indian Black Expo Summer Celebration, which features top names in African American music and culture. And of course, everyone loves the food, music, games, rides and all-around good time at the Indiana State Fair.
Whether you are planning to propose in costume at Gen-Con, the gaming conference, or you plan to pop the question at the Harrison Center for the Arts, finding an engagement ring in Indianapolis is easy, if you know where to look. For a unique piece with international flair, try the handmade and fair-trade-certified products at Global Gifts. But if you are looking for an Indianapolis engagement ring that wouldn’t look out of place in New York or LA, try the glamorous selection at Windsor Jewelry Co. on North Meridian Street. Of course, you can buy diamond jewelry in Indianapolis at national chain stores like Tiffany and Co., but most locals opt for smaller, locally-owned businesses to experience that friendly Midwestern vibe that Indianapolis is known for. Distinctive Diamonds is one of the few shops that carried loose diamonds in Indianapolis, although you can also purchase other Indianapolis diamond jewelry pieces there. And in nearby Beech Grove, the Spalding Jewelry Company can take care of all your engagement ring needs as well.
