One of my favorite parts of Indy. I love that you can stay at hotels with easy access, and go for a long walk to wind down after a day of meetings.

Me and nephews was out on Sunday. Very peaceful yet fun. They were able to ride their hover boards as I jogged. It was live music and other activities that a family could participate in.
