Living in Indianapolis

Affectionately known by its residents as ‘Indy’, Indianapolis is the capital of Indiana and also the largest city in the state. It is a fantastic city with a history routed in politics, which is why there are so many great buildings and architectural structures to see. In fact, in the US, only Washington DC has more monuments. It is a great place for expats to live in, thanks to its diverse economy, affordable housing as well as a widely regarded downtown area. Indianapolis is also a popular tourist destination, playing host to a number of sporting events each year including the Indianapolis 500 Speedway race. Those with an interest in sport can visit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum as well as the see the Colts (American Football) and Pacers (Basketball) in action. Other great tourist spots include the Madame Walker Theatre and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
