Exploring IndianapolisEdit

Practical information and resourcesEdit


Saint Elmo's Steak House is located 127 South Illinois Street.  It is an excellent restaurant.  While it is expensive, you will not leave hungry.  The shrimp cocktail packs quite a punch as it is made with fresh horseradish.


Whistle Stop is a bar that is across the street from the bus station (and popular with bus passengers who have a layover).  While it does not have craft beer, the prices are fairly reasonable. Triton Brewing Company produces beer that is worth trying.
