Indianapolis

A Capital City

Indianapolis, the capital of Indiana, is the 12th-largest city in the United States (est. 1999 population: 810,946). A city of contrasts, it offers big-city charm and small-town friendliness. The population represents a rich mixture of cultures.

Events

The city first became famous as host of the "greatest spectacle in racing," the internationally famous Indianapolis 500 that takes place each May. However, during the past decade the city has hosted more than 200 national and international athletic competitions, including the Pan American Games, Olympic trials, and various national, international and collegiate athletic championships.

The city also is a highly acclaimed center of the arts. A few of the city's most popular cultural attractions are:

Climate

Late spring and fall are the most pleasant seasons in Indianapolis. Summers are warm with "muggy" periods and winters can be cold with snowfalls of three inches or more about three times annually. Rainfall is well distributed throughout the year. Come to Indiana prepared for a wide range of temperatures, and bring both lightweight and warm clothing.
