Indianapolis is a great place to visit. But what makes Indy such a splendid place to stop over makes it an even better place to live. Home to one of the world's largest children's museums, as well as professional and college sports teams and miles of recreational trails, the Circle City has plenty to keep locals entertained. Indianapolis's lively downtown is easily walk-able. With so many things to do, it's easy for residents to experience big-city living without too much effort.
Indianapolis is often referred to as the Racing Capital of the World thanks to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which takes up 560 acres on the west side of the city proper. Every May, hundreds of thousands of people show up to watch the largest-attended sporting event in the U.S., the Indianapolis 500. Sports in general play a huge role in the region's economy. By hosting other major sporting events, like NCAA tournaments and the 2012 Super Bowl, Indianapolis has benefited in the multi-million dollar range from increased business opportunities, job creation and more taxes going directly to the metro area.
