Indianapolis, IN Overview

Through the UNIGOV consolidation with Marion County, the City of Indianapolis now encompasses the suburban townships that surround it as well as very small towns like Crows Nest or Rocky Ripple that retain a unique identity.  Historic neighborhoods like Old Northside, the Historic Arts District, or Herron-Morton Place provide opportunities for Victorian Queen Anne architecture or distinctive features such as bay windows, ornate stone fireplaces, stained glass, soaring ceilings, wide staircases, and built-ins.  Just south of the University of Indianapolis is the neighborhood of University Heights, where streets were named after the bishops and university founders.  Residents enjoy a location just minutes from the university's resources but also close to downtown, Greenwood shopping, lush parks, and Interstate highways.


Area youth within the city are served by the Indianapolis Public Schools, although the townships provide independent school districts for suburban communities.  Regardless of the environment or lifestyle you desire, Indianapolis offers a distinctive neighborhood or modern subdivision that meets every need.  Cozy bungalows, two-story manors, executive homes, and acreage properties in the suburbs are some of the possibilities.  Indianapolis International Airport and the impressive number of thoroughfares crisscrossing the region ensure that travel is efficient and convenient.  Throughout the county, the diversity of residential communities is enhanced by world-class attractions for a truly rich lifestyle that grows more endearing with every passing year.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
