I visited Indianapolis last August for a few days and I absolutely loved this city. I went to a Colts pre-season game and did a little exploring around town as well. Indianapolis is known for its sports franchises and its annual Nascar races. Below are a few a best and safest places to run, walk, or bike in or around the Indianapolis area.
Best Places To Run In Indianapolis:
- Monon Trail: This asphalt trail extends over ten miles worth of fun and excitement. Monon Trail is home to lovely landscapes, White River views, restaurants, and other small shops. Definitely a “to do” if you are in the Indianapolis area.
- Indianapolis Canal Walk: The canal walk is one of my all-time favorites and is home to tons of museums and historic landmarks. The Canal Walk offers pedal boat or bike rentals, gondola rides, bridges, small cafes, and amazing people watching while you jog or walk. Another must do if you are in the area.
- Eagle Creek Park: This is the fourth largest city park in the nation and the site for several Indianapolis running events. The park is located on the northwest side of Indianapolis and the terrain is typically flat with a few rolling hills. The park is simply amazing, but there is a small admission fee.
