On this Indianapolis Circle City Districts Tour, you can expect to run along Massachusetts Avenue, (or as locals refer to it as Mass Ave), Arts District. A popular dining and bar scene, you will also be introduced to street art and murals, one such mural is Hoosier native Kurt Vonnegut.
This district has boutiques and a neighborhood feel, rather than urban. It is also home to the Bottleworks Hotel housed inside a vintage Coca Cola Bottling plant. This unique destination is not only used for a hotel but a foodie venue by day and night club by night. It has all the fun with all the art deco left intact.
We will get into the City’s history in the Wholesale District when we see the City Market which was built in 1886. Once on the brick paved streets of the circle, (our hub for Indianapolis), we make a visit to The Soldiers and Sailors Monument erected in 1902. It is the most recognizable monument of the city.
The Next District is the White River, State Park. Home to the NCAA national headquarters and IUPUI University, and is a more quiet and serene section of the city. We will run along the Indiana Central Canal which is a popular training location for many local runners.
Rounding out the Districts on the tour is the Indiana Avenue District. Home of the Phoenix Theatre and the Glick Peace Walk. If you are a Robert Wyland fan, we will take a swim with the Orcas at his Whaling Wall, (ok, just a run past this fabulous mural).
This Indianapolis Circle City Districts tour gives you a touch of the best of Indy. The sights are fabulous, but so is knowing where to find exactly that something unique you might be searching for when learning a new city.
