Fun in Indianapolis

In anticipation of the big game weekend, we asked two of our Indianapolis-based Atlas agents to put together a list of their favorite things to do and see in their city (you know, besides the Super Bowl itself). Thanks to Emily Creel and Sherry Sweetland for their response. Take a look at what they’re suggesting for game day and beyond!

Super Bowl Village

  • NFL Experience – recommend purchasing tickets in advance.
  • Zip line – sells out QUICK
  • Check out the roman numerals on the circle
  • Bring your ID – you can walk around with alcohol as long as it’s not in a bottle
  • Free concerts
  • Street food vendors
  • Warming stations
  • Food trucks

  1. This is fantastic! I’ve been listening to the sports media in NE, and they cannot say enough good things about Indy and what a great job they have done. And they can’t say enough of how wonderful the people are, but we here at Atlas Travel already knew that–because we get to work with with a great team that leave in Indy. With that said, i’m thinking this is going to be a city, i would like to visit soon. I’ve been to all the big cities, but i think Indy is now at the top of my list.

  2. It’s so good to read local recommendations from Atlas’ feet on the street. Nice job! And which bar is the one that all the Pats fans gravitate towards?
