What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Indianapolis

I like the locked entry way to our apartments. We live close to a lot of different resaurants and stores

I like all the trees and that people can walk their dogs in the street. I like that the neighborhood is well lit and people usually have extra garage lights and yard lights on.

It is unique because it has the best schools and grocery stores, restaurants and pharmacies. My favorite restaurant/bar is literally walking distance from my apartment. I like going to the bar and the restaurants that are in the area.

It's close to broadripple and down town for food and drinks. I like the options in the area. Target is close by.

On the upside, I am close to dollar stores and a grocery store. Thee are 4 churches in my street. I live above a bar. My landlord lives on -sire.

My neighborhood is unique with the variety of different cultures. My house is an 8 minute walk to my favorite Mexican restaurant. I like going to the nearby bar & grill to meet up with some of my close friends.

Living in Indianapolis, IN

Getting to Know Indianapolis, IN

While Indianapolis may have been underrated in the past, it's doing a lot to change this. With more than $5 billion spent on improvements in the last 30 years, the city has become more than just another state capitol.

Indianapolis Apartments and Neighborhoods

  • Broad Ripple Village: Do you like weird? Broad Ripple Village is the kind of place "weird" is usually used for. Be it the graffiti, comedy clubs, art galleries, great restaurants, or nightlife, this place has what makes for a weird but trendy neighborhood.
  • Glendale: If you like being close to the city but keeping things a little quieter, look at Glendale. It's close to Broad Ripple village, but much more like a suburb than part of the city. If you have or want a family, this is a good place to look. 
  • Fountain Square: Fountain Square feels vintage. Not necessarily old, but just the right mix of buildings, shops, and restaurants that feel like they're calling back to an older time. 
  • Allisonville: Similar to Glendale, Allisonville is good for families. With great schools and a quieter atmosphere, it's a great choice for families who want to keep the city close but not live in the middle of it. 
  • Old Northside: This is where you find the mix of historical and modern day. Full of homes varying from sprawling mansions to small but nice, you can find all sorts here. There are also several cultural events throughout the year, so keep an eye out for anything that might interest you. 

Attractions and Education in Indianapolis

Indianapolis offers you beautiful monuments and state-of-the-art museums. Indianapolis also boasts an exciting nightlife and a plentiful selection of breweries. Plus, you can enjoy the downtown scene in the winter months as well, thanks to the climate-controlled skywalk system.

In addition to a growing professional sector, Indianapolis is also home to respected institutions of higher learning, including Butler University, the University of Indianapolis and Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).

Fun Free Things to Do in Indianapolis

Indianapolis is packed with enjoyable activities, and many of the entertainment options are absolutely free! Check out these attractions for budget-friendly fun:

  • Garfield Park Conservatory: Welcoming more than 200,000 visitors each year, the conservatory's free nature exhibits are open 365 days a year.
  • Indianapolis Artsgarden: Housed under a glass dome in downtown Indianapolis, the Artsgarden hosts monthly exhibits featuring area artists as well as more than 250 free performances throughout the year.
  • Indianapolis Cultural Trail: This eight-mile walking and biking trail winds through downtown, connecting neighborhoods and providing easy access to the city's entertainment venues.
  • Soldiers and Sailors Monument: Standing over 284 feet in the center of Indy's Monument Circle, this towering structure features a 331-step stairwell that leads to an observation deck. Visitors who don't want to make the climb can take the elevator.
  • USS Indianapolis National Memorial: Free and open 24 hours a day, learn a part of history you probably aren't familiar with. The USS Indianapolis was crucial to the end of World War II and its sinking remains a controversial part of the war and its aftermath. 

Best of Indianapolis

  • Best place for a romantic date
    St. Elmo Steak House is the city's most upscale restaurant. Not only will you find the state's best steak and shrimp cocktail, you might see Colts players dining alongside you.
  • Best place to get a treat
    Skip your typical dessert shop and take the family to Sub Zero Ice Cream. The ice cream and frozen yogurt is made using liquid nitrogen, resulting in it being creamier and denser.
  • Best way to eat on the cheap
    Every fall, Devour Indy lets you eat at some of the city's most illustrious restaurants for a major discount. You have two weeks to eat your way through more than 200 of downtown's best three-course dinners. 
  • Best place to relax
    Invoke Studio is consistently ranked as one of Indianapolis' best yoga studios. With a varied schedule, a range of workshops and great packages for newbies, your body will thank you.

Adventures in Indianapolis

  • White River State Park, Indiana's only urban state park, is situated on 250 acres in the middle of downtown. You can explore the park on foot, bike or Segway.
  • The Indiana State Museum hosts a rotation of fascinating exhibits about everything from natural history to physics.
  • Broad Ripple Village is known as the city's most culturally diverse neighborhood. It also features a high-energy nightlife, with plenty of bars offering live music and entertainment.
  • The Indiana Central Canal is a hotspot for walkers, runners and cyclists. If you'd rather be on the water, you can rent a paddleboat or enjoy a gondola ride.
  • The Oldfields is a historic 26-acre estate with a mansion that's been fully restored to its original 1930s beauty. Visitors also enjoy family-friendly programs and events scheduled throughout the year.

Indianapolis Spectator Sports

When it comes to the Indy sports scene, the Pacers and Colts are popular, the University of Indiana Hoosiers are big in basketball, but the Indy 500 is king. As the race weekend's schedule of activities takes over the city on Memorial Day, hotels fill up and restaurants will be packed, which means it could be a great time to rent out your apartment's guest bedroom if you have one!

For Indy Families with Kids

From the enormous Indianapolis Zoo to the award-winning Children's Museum of Indianapolis, families can find fun for all ages throughout the city.  

Indianapolis Outdoor Living & Natural Beauty
