A Guide to Things Close By

Getting Around
BlueIndy is a special kind of car rental. These electric-powered cars are parked in stations all over town. Pick one up. Drive it to another station near where you want to go. There are TWO stations near my home. (NOTE: You have to set up an account first. It's easy but doing it ahead of time will help. The airport has a kiosk for registration as does the downtown station. There is a registration station at Butler, but not always working. If you think you'll use it, I'd register before you travel here. Then no worries.)

IndyGo, our public bus system, has stops for two routes (#28, #18) just three blocks from my house. The very popular Red Line (from Broad Ripple to UIndy) is a mile from my house. All buses allow bikes on board or attached to the front of the bus. Route #19 is about 7 blocks from my home.

Bike Share stations are scattered around, especially downtown. Near me, there's one on Butler campus, one about 3 blocks east and one in Broad Ripple. You're always welcome to borrow my bike (let me know before you arrive), but the bike share is a fun way to get around town. You pick up and drop off at any station, paying a small fee via your credit card. (NOTE: a ride to a downtown station is about 5 miles to the circle) If you're lucky, you'll find a Bird or Lime nearby (electric scooter) to enjoy the area even more.

My favorite jogging, walking, biking path is right across from my home. A cinder towpath, it takes you one direction into Broad Ripple and another direction toward Butler, the art museum and downtown. Quiet, it meanders along the canal. (NOTE: The art museum and back is about 3 miles on the path.)

Considered the best Children's Museum in world (certainly in U.S.) Very short drive (6-7 minutes) or the #28 IndyGo bus drops in front of museum. (Bus stop for my neighborhood is 54th and Illinios -- about 3 blocks from my home.)

small, neighborhood grocery with all the basics. Has a good reputation for its fried chicken (I'm vegetarian, so can't confirm or deny that.)

Grilled pizza, all-you-can-eat pasta on Sundays, plus salads, this locally-owned spot is three blocks from my house. Outdoor seating most of the year if weather is decent. Also, a small bar called The Rhino, featuring local-favorite Hotel Tango Distillery spirits.
