In the heart of the Midwest with a population of more than 800,000, Indianapolis is Indiana's largest city. Founded in 1821 as Indiana's capital, Indianapolis was originally planned as a one-square-mile city to house the state's government, but it quickly grew beyond that.

The Best Time to Visit Indianapolis, IN

Summer is by far the most popular time of the year to visit Indianapolis due to the wonderful summer attractions. From June through August, the Indianapolis Museum of Art hosts a Summer Nights Film Series with classic American films projected on a giant outdoor screen. Continue the outdoor fun and appreciation of all the natural beauty with the Symphony in the Park in June and July. July is also the time of the Super Weekend at the Brickyard with four thrilling races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Of course, with so many interesting attractions, summer can be the hardest time to find the most affordable hotel rates.

If you prefer more moderate temperatures and better hotel rates, opt for visiting Indianapolis in the spring or fall. The fall in Indianapolis is lovely with sunny days and mild temperatures. During the fall, you'll have a wide range of hotel rates to meet any budget as well as a preferred list of amenities. With plenty to do and see around Indianapolis in the fall, you'll save money and still have a great time with friends or family.

The springtime in Indianapolis is a bit unpredictable, as the warming weather can sometimes bring about thunderstorms. However, hotel rates are quite agreeable building up to the Indianapolis 500. If you're a lover of all things NASCAR, book your late May hotel reservation as early as possible to lock in the best rate possible. But if NASCAR isn't your cup of tea, plan your visit during the low-rate period in March and April with the understanding that the weather may spontaneously change course.
