Indianapolis is the capital of Indiana and the country's 11th largest city. It is large enough to play host to the Indianapolis 500 (the largest single-day sporting event in the world) and the 2012 Super Bowl, but small enough to personify small-town charm. Indianapolis offers superb cultural, educational, sports and dining opportunities. Residents enjoy low cost of living, short commute times, and high quality of life.
