If you’re moving to Indianapolis, IN, and happen to a be a student of history then you’re in luck. The city is filled with more historical monuments than many people know and it has a great deal of significance in American history overall. This is particularly true if you’re a veteran. Indianapolis contains the largest collection of monuments dedicated to veterans in the country, outside of the nation’s capital. Some of these sites are:
- Crown Hill National Cemetery
- Indiana World War Memorial Plaza
- Landmark for Peace Memorial
- Medal of Honor Memorial
- Project 9/11 Indianapolis
- Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument
- USS Indianapolis National Memorial
As any sports fan who’s moving to Indianapolis will tell you, the city is a haven of collegiate and professional sports greatness. Some of the greatest teams and athletic performances the world has seen have taken place in the city. Indianapolis is sometimes even called the "Amateur Sports Capital of the World,” since the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the main governing body for U.S. collegiate sports, and the National Federation of State High School Associations are both based here.
Each year, the NFL National Scouting Combine, Circle City Classic, Big Ten Football Championship Game and Indianapolis 500 race are held in the city, and let’s not forget the great NFL quarterback Peyton Manning, aka “The Sherriff”, played most of his career for the Indianapolis Colts and brought a Super Bowl title to the city in 2006. Indianapolis is possibly the greatest city for any sports fan on earth to live in.
