Downtown Indy during the Super Bowl

            It’s finally arrived! After years in the making, Super Bowl week in Indy is finally here.  Now as a native to Indy, I may be a little biased when I say that I think Indianapolis is a great city to host the Super Bowl.  While some might say Indy is too small of a city, the very fact that everything in Indy is compact makes all of the Super Bowl activities conveniently close together and easy to navigate.  The hubs and I live only a twenty-five minute drive away from the heart of the city, so we spent Saturday enjoying all of the Super Bowl festivities.  I have to say that I think the city did a great job putting everything together.  It was very well organized, and there was lots of stuff to see and do for every age group.  The Super Bowl Village is free, so other than food and parking (which you need to plan before arrival), expect to spend $10 and a long wait in line for the zip line (if you think a three hour wait is worth, not so much) and $25 for an all day pass to the NFL  Experience.   To fully experience a day in Indy during Super Bowl week, one could easily spend $100 for two people.   Most of us locals justify the cost, because how many times does one really get the chance to live in the city that is hosting such a great event?  It certainly is a first for us, and hopefully it won’t be the last;)
