Indianapolis, Indiana 46218

Indianapolis features a variety of sports venues and cultural attractions. It’s a growing city called the
Crossroads of America.

Built on swampy land, and originally planned to cover only a 1-square mile area, Indianapolis, Indiana quickly grew into a thriving city. The population at the time of the 2010 U.S. census numbered 829,718.

Established as the capital of Indiana in January of 1825 the city is home to such sports venues as the Indianapolis Colts, the Indiana Pacers, the Indianapolis Indians, the 2012 Super Bowl, and the Indianapolis 500.

Cultural attractions include the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians & Western Art, the Indiana State Museum, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, and the home of President Benjamin Harrison.

Intersecting interstate highways (routes 65, 69, 70, and 74) entering the city likes spokes on a wheel, along with the city’s location making it a natural hub for regional transportation connecting surrounding midwest cities, prompted the city motto, “The Crossroads of America.”
