Welcome to Indianapolis, one of America's greatest cities!  Though it's one of the nation's fastest growing metropolitan areas, Indianapolis has not lost its small town flavor and friendly atmosphere.  For the business traveler, convention delegate or visitor looking for fun and excitement, Indianapolis has something to offer everyone. 

Indianapolis is consistently ranked among the best places to live. Economically stable and diversified, Indianapolis is home to such international corporations as Eli Lily and Company, Thompson Consumer Electronics & Roche Diagnostics.  Indianapolis has long been know as the "Crossroads of America" because many of the nation's highways converge here.

Adding to the vitality of downtown Indianapolis, you'll find dynamic attractions, museums, theaters, shopping, restaurants and nightlife just steps away from the Indiana Convention Center & RCA Dome.  All of this is within a 10-minute drive of our international airport and within a day's drive of half the nation's population.  And once you're here, getting around town is equally effortless.  Limos, taxis, buses, horse-drawn carriages, gondola rides and paddleboats move people from place to place with ease.

Prepare to be impressed about Indianapolis.  This metropolitan area of 1.5 million people continue to surprise and delight visitors with its stunning skyline, world-class attractions and vibrant downtown.  It's a mixture of cosmopolitan flair and cordial hospitality that's moving Indianapolis from obscurity to prominence.  Just take a closer look at what Indy has to offer!
