Only a few blocks from the house, Kountry Kitchen doesn't look much better on the inside than the outside, but this is super satisfying down home food: fried chicken, tasty greens, creamy mac and cheese and truly hearty breakfasts.

Nationally recognized for its Smoking Goose meats, this market offers a great selection of wines and beers, terrific specialty food items and a full case of meats and cheeses. Their spicy Batali sandwich is a local favorite, and they also offer Michigan's Palazzolo gelato. Enjoy your goodies in the basement enoteca or outside on the small patio. Bon Appetit named it one of their top ten sandwich shops in 2008, and it remains distinctive and surprising.

Serving contemporary American cuisine with local produce and meat in a charming renovated 1924 factory warehouse. Menu changes daily. No reservations but you can wait across the street in the equally charming Hotel Tango Artisan Distillery. Next door pick up bread at Amelia's, a popsicle at Nicey Treats or a coffee at Calvin Fletcher's Coffee Company.

Sightseeing
Beautiful walk right in White River State Park. Start on 10th Street and end up at the zoo, passing along the way the Indiana State Museum and IMAX Theater, the USS Indianapolis Memorial, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art, the NCAA Hall of Champions. Hop on a gondola or a paddle boat, stop for a bite at Burgerhaus or Fresco Cafe.

Stunning architecture -- one of the largest Masonic buildings as well as one of the finest examples of Neo-Gothic architecture in the United States. Right on the Cultural Trail and definitely worth a look if you're taking a Pacers bike to the canal.

Very cool memorial to various wars situated among 24 acres of monuments, statues, sculptures, and fountains in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, making Indy second only to Washington D.C. in acreage and number of monuments dedicated to veterans. Make sure to check the breathtaking upper level Shrine Room.

The small tap room for Central State Brewing, but serving other beers as well (and wine!). Sometimes a food truck's out front, or you can enjoy a bite from Goose the Market next door. Named one of the top 100 beer bars in the United States by the bi-monthly Draft magazine.

This neighborhood pub on Indy's southside is a full bar and serves lunch but is best enjoyed for the live honky tonk music in the evenings -- when the only thing on the menu is (delicious) fried chicken with great sides. Really friendly atmosphere.

Getting Around
Pacers Bike Share stations are located throughout the Cultural Trail (the closest to my house is at North and Alabama). This is a terrific way to see sights around downtown and Fountain Square, but remember that these bikes are intended to get you from one spot to another, not to leisurely tour town (there's bike rental at White River State Park for that). You have 30 minutes to get from one station to the next, then park your bike at the station, look around the area, then take another bike to head to your next stop.

Electric car stations dotted around town intended to get you from one popular location to the next. The closest station to my house is at 22nd and Delaware. A terrific new concept but the automated rental may be temperamental.

Parks & Nature
Right across the street, this park is where Robert F. Kennedy gave his memorable speech the night Dr. King was assassinated in 1968. At the far end of the park is the Landmark for Peace memorial sculpture, which honors the contributions of both slain leaders. The park also features picnic shelters, outdoor pool, basketball court, softball field and a playground.
