Top events in Indiana
Capital city Indianapolis is a hub for several major interstate highways (which is how the state got its “Crossroads of America” motto) and has much to offer travel-savvy visitors. The food is exceptional and affordable, with a diverse culinary scene from food trucks to fine dining earning it a reputation as one of America’s hottest foodie cities. Once you’ve had your fill of steak frites and cornmeal-fried catfish, work off those calories by hitting the Indy Cultural Trail, a bike- and pedestrian-friendly path that winds through some of the city’s coolest spots, with plenty of arty and architectural highlights along the way. All of this is underscored by the city’s world-famous Midwestern hospitality, dished out by some of the nicest people you’re likely to meet.
The Indianapolis 500, which turns 103 in 2019, is held annually at the end of May at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and features an open-wheel open cockpit formula known as “Indy Car Racing”.

If you’re a Brickyard novice, here are the names to memorize: Ray Harroun (winner of the inaugural event), current champion Will Power and Rick Mears, a four-time winner who also holds the record for most career pole positions.
