Indianapolis is a terribly boring city, perhaps the mosy boring major city in the US. The crime is not too bad—it's not an unsafe city except in a few small areas. The schools in the suburbs are good; inside the city they're variable. The housing stock is inexpensive but pretty boring.

Indy has a few good bars and restaurants. Otherwise, it's lame, man. Super lame. Although long-time residents seem to like it. Maybe they don't know any better?
