Group Week of Hope Indianapolis, Indiana

Indianapolis is famous around the world for fast cars and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but the city has a lot more to offer visitors. The state capital of Indiana has won praise for reinventing the bicycle and pedestrian experience in its downtown. The art world paid attention when the Indianapolis Museum of Art unveiled the largest contemporary art park in the country in June 2010.

For sports fans, Indianapolis is known for the legendary Hinkle Fieldhouse, site of the 1954 “Milan Miracle” that inspired the basketball film Hoosiers. Indianapolis is a beautiful and growing city with warm summers, colorful falls, and snowy winters.

The city is also an increasingly diverse place, with 40,000 foreign-born individuals moving to Indianapolis since 2000—a faster pace than even Chicago. Indy is now home to growing Mexican, Chinese, Sikh, Burmese, and Nigerian communities.

As you delight in the sights and activities, you’ll enjoy getting to know the people of this amazing community—and Week of Hope offers you an amazing opportunity to serve those who may have been forgotten or may just need a little hope.

Where

Resources nearby include Walmart Super Center, Dollar Store, Starbucks, and many restaurants including Italian food, burgers, pizza, and a diner with a soda fountain!

Indy might be the “Racing Capital of the World” and home to many sports, but it has so much more to offer. North America’s largest water clock is located in Indy, and you don’t want to miss the Canal Walk or the Indianapolis Zoo.

You can explore the many cultural districts in Indy including theater, outdoors, jazz, entertainment and shopping. The Wholesale District contains Circle Centre Mall with plenty of shopping and many great restaurants, including PF Changs, Chick-fil-A, and A&W.

Nearby is Eagle Creek Park, one of the nation’s largest city parks, covering over 3,900 acres of land on the northwest side of town. It offers picnic areas, swimming beach, rentals for canoes, kayaks, Hobie Cats, sailboats, pontoon boats, wind-surfing and pedal boats.

You might also consider taking your group to experience a team building adventure at The Escape Room. Once your group has escaped, go downstairs to The Old Spaghetti Factory and have dinner!
