12 Coolest Airbnbs in Indianapolis

Indianapolis is an exciting travel destination, known for racing, history, and for being “The Crossroads of America”, thanks to many intersecting highways. Foodies can find refuge along Massachusetts Avenue, also known as “Mass Ave”, where a string of artisan eateries await to please the palate. Lucas Oil Stadium, where the NFL Colts play, draws thousands on game day, to its marvelous brick stadium with a retractable roof. Then you have the farms and refreshing Amish country along the outskirts, for a more peaceful kind of adventure. Whatever your reason for stopping through, there are some cool Airbnbs to crash for the night.
