Neighborhoods
Lots of restaurants and bars to visit in 'B-rip'. Good shopping options and well taken care of walking paths. Only about a mile away from the Airbnb, we recommend driving and parking nearby. South Broad Ripple is considered to start around 46th St. at Root & Bone, and continues up to around 62nd (Broad Ripple Ave.). All of the restaurants in the heart of B-rip are worth checking out!

Hip and trendy restaurants near downtown Indy. Can't go wrong with most choices, but we personally love Ralston's Drafthouse, Union 50, 45 Degrees, and the Livery. There's a brand new refurbished facility (Coca-cola bottling plant) with a movie theater, food hall, and unique shopping options. Google The Garage food hall and use it as your starting point to visit all of Mass Ave!

$$ Half price, high quality sushi on Sundays. Make sure to get there earlier if you can to avoid long wait times as they don't take reservations over the phone. Inside is hip and modern, but the outside patio is our favorite place to eat when the weather cooperates (good people watching on Mass Ave).

$$ Our go-to Indian restaurant - they have delivery available via DoorDash, or you can call them for pickup (about 10 min drive). Try the chicken tikka masala, and vegetable malai kofta. The cauliflower appetizer is really good too! Naan bread (garlic is the best) is a MUST also. Traditional northern Indian fare served with wine & beer in a serene setting, plus a lunch buffet.

Sightseeing
Close by and tons of hiking and biking trails. Highly recommend! Fort Harrison is a state park for many seasons for many reasons. Patrons may enjoy visiting the park year round, especially in winter since Fort Harrison features one of the biggest sledding hills in the area. Spring is the season to walk with the woodland wildflowers in full bloom across the park. Summer is the perfect time for a canoe trip down Fall Creek, the major water feature that runs through the north side of Fort Harrison. Autumn brings warm, sunny days and breathtaking fall colors to this, the last forested corner left in Marion County.

With a name coined from the computer architecture that several of our 35+ vintage arcade games were built on, 16-Bit appeals to those looking for an alternative to the monotonous. From bar-going veterans to young open-minded, beer-centric types, to arcade game novices and enthusiasts, the nostalgic and playful vibe is for players of all types. The time has come to relive your childhood and party like it’s 1999, or 1989 for that matter.
