VIBRANT. INNOVATIVE. FORWARD- THINKING. EVER-CHANGING.
This list isn’t describing a Fortune 500 company; rather, a place that has transformed from town to thriving city newly renovated amphitheater in the Nickel Plate District. Grab a pint at the local brewery, sit back on the patio and listen to the music in the air. Rooted in history of early settlement, Fishers teaches its heritage to future generations at Conner Prairie, a Smithsonian Institute affiliate outdoor history museum. Kids’ eyes light up when they embark on a tethered balloon voyage high in the sky or interact one-on-one with a pioneer who tells them about daily life in 1800s Indiana. Fishers is a place you can celebrate the past and welcome the future, all in one.

“HIPSTORIC.” It’s not technically a real word, but if you looked it up in the dictionary you’d find a photo of a charming town square, complete with red bricks lining the streets and assorted items. Interact with local artists creating in their studios and try it for yourself with a mini art project to go. And if you get hungry along the way, there’s great local dining steps away. Beyond the heart of the “hipstoric” city center is a tranquil space along the serene White River, where you can walk alongside the flowing water or hop in a kayak or canoe. End the evening rocking out to your favorite artist at a world-class outdoor concert amphitheater, Ruoff Music Center, and the sun sets on the perfect day in Noblesville.

Westfield's rise to prominence as a youth sports capital has been a home run for the sports complex that welcomes thousands of athletes and families year-round, as well as the community. You’re bound to hear the cheers and shouts of teams competing for glory at Grand Park—it’s a massive, 400-acre campus after all. But perhaps the best Cinderella story isn’t found on the field or the court, but in a city celebrated as a culinary destination attracting foodies far and wide. When a dilapidated red barn transformed into a magical farm-to-table dining experience, the rest was history, and exciting eateries followed suit. Within a mile radius, you can savor mouthwatering barbecue, exquisite sushi, a hefty Indiana pork tenderloin sandwich, homemade ice cream, craft cocktails and more. Sports and food are a classic pairing, but Westfield is elevating both to new heights and knocking it out of the park.
