And it's hard to argue their logic. With more than 30 breweries calling the Indy-area home, craft beer lovers can enjoy a cold brew in every part of the city.
Add Indy Eleven's emergence to the city's rich sports culture — the Indy 500 just celebrated its 100 birthday — and you can see why sports nuts love Indianapolis.
A revived Fountain Square, thriving music and arts scene and 8-mile Indianapolis Cultural Trail surely can't hurt either.
Don’t sleep on Indianapolis.
I am having a tough time wrapping my brain around this poll. I'm proud of Indianapolis for getting ranked in the top 10 for something that is not negative (see obesity and standardized testing) but this poll makes absolutely zero sense. If your city is truly underrated, it is not going to be on a list; because being on a list would make your city rated. The true underrated cities are cities than no one would even guess (Shout out Dayton, Ohio).
The most ridiculous part of this article is the fact that Travel & Leisure tried to say Boston, San Francisco, and Chicago were underrated cities. CHICAGO?! ... You are trying to tell me that the 3rd most populated city in America is underrated? I might buy Boston and San Fran for being underrated because of the shadow their big brother cities, New York and LA, cast on them; but no way do I believe Chicago is underrated. Absolutely no way do believe this poll. Family Feud poll's have more clout than Travel & Leisure.
