Overview

For 2017 we are offering a 4-night package staying at the Hampton Inn located in the centre of downtown Indianapolis, together with an optional extension to New York for 3 nights - a great combination we think! 

There are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby dishing up traditional American food at great value prices. Alternatively, if you fancy something more formal, Indy has over 200 restaurants to choose from serving delicious cuisine from around the world.

The city comes alive after dark with hundreds of places for ‘good times and good conversation’. Some of the popular bars include Jazz kitchen, Cadillac ranch and Nicky Blaine’s.
