If any companies call you indicating they have special rates on flights or hotels available, they are “pirate housing companies” and DO NOT represent APPA, or area hotels or airlines that APPA has partnered with. If they reach out to you, we strongly recommend that you DO NOT use their services. No legitimate hotel or airline will ever contact you directly asking you to book with them.

* Any booking of non-training institute related events or tours are done at the discretion/risk of the attendee and APPA cannot be held responsible for any issues that may arise.

Indy was named the most ‘Underrated Food City in America’ by Condé Nast Traveler, and for good reason. Try classics like the searing shrimp cocktail at St. Elmo, the piled-high reuben at Shapiro's, or the oversized pork tenderloin that is served almost everywhere. James Beard-recognized chefs are on display at Bluebeard, Vida, and Milktooth. If you can't decide what to eat, wander into a food hall at The Garage, AMP, or City Market. From local restaurants to acclaimed breweries, Indy is fit for foodies.

Indy’s arts scene is also flourishing. Live theatre is alive and well in Indianapolis and there is talent around every corner in the city. From traditional Shakespeare at the Indiana Repertory Theatre to the eclectic and quirky spirit of IndyFringe, there are performances for everyone to enjoy. Indianapolis has emerged on the art and culture scene as a major player within the last 10 years. From public, free galleries to more quirky to professional spaces, Indy does art well. Cinophiles will find an abundance of film-related outings on a visit to Indy. Of course, there is no shortage of standard movie houses from which to select. Like many cities, they are traditionally settled around shopping centers, including downtown’s Circle Centre.
