Indianapolis travel tips

1) Vegans (and not only) will love Sinking Ship in Indianapolis

Go to 4923 N College Avenue in Indianapolis and see how the visitors of the Sinking Ship cafe (usually drunk vegans) do not get tempted by eating a piece of meat. Go there and enjoy the great rock 'n' roll atmosphere. If you prefer meat, opt for smoked brisket or Amish chicken.

2) Come to the neighbourhood of Indianapolis, Westfield, by bus and leave by bike

Coming back to Indianapolis from Westfield it would be a cool idea to get on bike and ride along the Monon Trail, a 25-kilometers path to downtown Indianapolis. Considering the abundance of restaurants in Westfield (like The Italian House with their pasta), it is a nice way to keep feet after a hearty meal.

3) Visiting Indianapolis in winter, make sure to see a Veal's Ice Tree

Go to 6445 Mimosa Ln in Indianapolis in winter to see a tremendous Veal's Ice Tree. It used to be just a simple family tradition that turned into an important city winter pastime. The ice tree pulling water from a nearby pond is a great background for winter photos.
