Indianapolis, Indiana, Information
Located in the middle of the state, the city of Indianapolis is a crossroads and has numerous Interstates highways pass through it.
Indianapolis is the 12th largest city in the U.S.A. It is serviced by one major airport, Indianapolis International airport.
Designed by the architects of Washington, DC, Indianapolis is laid out on a mile-square grid with Monument Circle serving as the centrepiece.
Monument Circle is also home to the 284-foot Soldiers’ & Sailors’ Monument. Dedicated in 1902 and made of Indiana limestone, the Soldiers’ & Sailors’ Monument stands as a tribute to the Indiana soldiers and sailors who served in the Civil and Spanish-American Wars. The downtown area is often referred to as the "mile square".
Commonly referred to as the Racing Capital of the World, Indianapolis hosts the three largest single-day sporting events in the world: the Indianapolis 500, the Brickyard 400 and the SAP United States Grand Prix, which brought Formula One racing back the United States in 2000.
