What else is nearby?

Looking to enrich your weekend with local tourist attractions, shopping, and whatnot?

The conference is right in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, so there's a lot of great stuff within a short walk (or cab ride if you prefer).

The Visit Indy site is great for helping you explore the area, including tourist attractions, eating, and shopping.

Given the topic of the conference, Earth Crammed with Heaven, we recommend the nearby Indianapolis Museum of Art Gardens!
