This spring, plan a vacation that’s fast and furious with a low-cost, nonstop Allegiant flight to Indianapolis, IN.

May is the perfect time to visit, as drivers take to the starting lines for the annual Indy 500 at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. But there’s a surprise waiting around every turn here!

Called the Circle City, downtown Indy is anchored by the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. It pays tribute to our nation’s fallen and sits on a circular, brick street in the heart of downtown.

Explore Indy’s Canal Walk by foot, bike or our personal favorite … an authentic gondola imported from Venice! The canal is part of a 250-acre urban green space called White River State Park.

Explore hip neighborhoods like Mass Ave, where you’ll come across beautiful murals and theaters, and SoBro, which you can access through the popular Monon Trail and try food from all over!

Speaking of foodies, Food & Wine Magazine calls Indy one of the most exciting American food scenes! Test your palate at the landmark St. Elmo Steak House, home to the world’s spiciest shrimp cocktail. Major league eaters like Joey Chestnut have competed in the restaurant’s World Famous Shrimp Cocktail Eating Championship. You’ll also want to check out Tinker StreetBluebeard and Rook.

And be sure to get your picture taken with the original, iconic Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture on the campus of Newfields!
