Although I've lived in various places on the east coast for 20+ years, Indianapolis remains my favorite place to reside. It's about 150 miles from where I grew up but I consider it a second hometown. It is a beautiful, affordable city with great culture, amazing food and so much to do as well as lots of great surrounding towns--whether you have a boat and want to live on a reservoir or enjoy cobblestone streets and fox hunting. Often, I am surprised at how little east coasters know about "the middle." Here are some great photos from Herstory on Instagram (unless otherwise noted,) it's an account that chronicles historic buildings. I'm already planning a short visit this spring and my list is always longer than my time.
