Indianapolis Scavenger: The Ultimate Search for Indianapolis’s Hidden Treasures

Do you know Indianapolis better than your friends? Are you new to the area and want to see it all and explore the city?

This book will send you on a guided scavenger hunt, dispersed across 19 of the city’s vibrant neighborhoods and cultural districts. The clues within are your compass, guiding you through breathtaking parks, historical monuments and oddities, local businesses and restaurants, sports arenas, public art installations, and architectural marvels unique to the city.

Every clue holds a delightful discovery or an unexpected revelation about Indiana’s capital city. Whether you aim to be the solver-of-all-riddles; desire a spirited adventure with family or friends; are looking for a unique date-night activity; or want to indulge in a solitary, creative journey, you’ll unveil new charms of Indianapolis.

Lifestyle and Indianapolis family expert Katy Mann from indywithkids.com has created a collection of quests with historical context, storytelling, and a bit of poetic flair. Join other Indianapolis scavenger-hunt enthusiasts at indyscavengerhunt.com.
