Heading to Indy for the National Championship? Here’s what you need to know
Indianapolis receives a big boost in Southern charm this weekend, as fans from Alabama and Georgia converge on the Indiana capital for Monday’s college football playoff national championship game. evening.
Over the past few decades, Indianapolis has grown into one of the busiest and most vibrant cities in the country, and there is enough going on that you can’t ever see it all. But Morgan Snyder, a member of the BFC host committee, offered some advice.
“There is so much to do in this city,” Snyder said. “It’s a really cool place for visitors.
If you’re heading to Indy and haven’t found a hotel yet, you’re probably out of luck.
“Our hotels have been full for months in the downtown area, but I encourage fans to check out what we call Interstate 465, which is a big loop that goes around town,” Snyder said. “You’re going to see some of our cities like Noblesville, Greenwood, Franklin, Indiana that have hotels available there.”
Indianapolis high on Friday is 22. The low? 6 degrees. But the weather isn’t that hard to manage if you’re downtown, Snyder said.
“We have more climate control gateways than any city in this country, so if you want to walk indoors from one side of downtown to the other, you can do that,” he said. she declared. “You can enter Lucas Oil Stadium from your hotel room if you are in a downtown hotel or inside the Indiana Convention Center.
The question is: is Indianapolis ready for Alabama and Georgia this weekend?
“I myself am a southerner,” Snyder said. “So I’m delighted to bring southerners to the city. But Southern hospitality will meet Hoosier hospitality. It’s in our DNA. It’s in our blood, and I think you’re going to have a great time.
The game takes place at Lucas Oil Stadium on Monday and kick-off is at 7 p.m.
