10 Reasons Why Indianapolis is the Best Place for Iasta reSource 2014: A Guide to Indianapolis


Can you believe that we are only a few weeks away from Iasta reSource 2014?

If you’re joining us for the conference, your days at reSource will be full of inspiring speakers and sessions and exciting networking opportunities and receptions. But remember to take some time to explore downtown Indy as well! The city is full of exciting things to do and see.

To simplify your trip planning, I’ve created a list of the must-see spots in Indianapolis.

  1. Soldiers and Sailors Monument This Civil War monument and museum is located right in the heart of downtown Indy and is a definite Indiana landmark. If you are a history buff, the Soldiers and Sailors Monument should be top on your list.
  2. Indianapolis Cultural Trail – Step outside of The Alexander and right onto the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, an 8-mile biking and walking trail that connects each of the six Cultural Districts in downtown Indy.
  3. Mass Ave Arts District – One of Indy’s six cultural districts, Mass Ave houses 5 blocks of restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries that you won’t find anywhere else!
  4. Indianapolis Motor Speedway – NASCAR fan? Then you’ve got to stop by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Tour the Hall of Fame Museum, visit the infield, and even take a ride around the track!
  5. Sports Stadiums – Although Indianapolis is renowned for the Indy 500, our city is also known for fantastic sports teams. Check out the Indianapolis Colts’ Lucas Oil Stadium, the Pacers’ Bankers Life Fieldhouse, and the Indianapolis Indians’ Victory Field – all within minutes of The Alexander.
  6. Canal Walk – Enjoy both water and city views as you stroll (or run or bike) along Indiana’s Central Canal. Relax as you watch boats float by or rent a pedal boat of your own.
  7. White River State Park – Escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and visit White River State Park. Travel by foot, pedal, boat, or even Segway as you view beautiful scenery.
  8. Circle Centre – If shopping is what you’re looking for, Circle Centre is the place to visit. Filled with more than 125 shops and restaurants, this indoor mall is an Indy favorite.
  9. Indianapolis Museums – Culture junkie? Indianapolis is home to a variety of awesome museums, including the Indiana State Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA).
  10. Broad Ripple Village – Only about a 20 minute drive from the city, Broad Ripple Village is packed full of quirky shops, bars, and restaurants. This exciting neighborhood is always a fun place to explore!
