Downtown Indy Cultural Districts

Indianapolis is bursting with pride over its six unique Cultural Districts: The Canal and White River State Park, Fountain Square, Indiana Avenue, Market East, Mass Ave and Wholesale District. Four of the six districts have homes directly in Downtown Indianapolis, while Fountain Square is just a mile southeast. You've probably heard of or even visited several of these areas before, but here's a more detailed look to really understand all that each district has to offer.
