Indianapolis offers two distinctly different shopping experiences, but luckily, both are in downtown and close to each other. Circle Centre is the city’s best modern mall, with over 100 shops — including most well-known chain brands — all linked to 12 downtown hotels by climate-controlled skywalks. Massachusetts Avenue (known to locals as Mass Ave) is downtown Indianapolis’ funkier side, lined with one-of-a-kind boutiques, many of them owner-operated. The five-block area has theaters and shops galore — check out the shoe store that claims to be nation's oldest, Stout's Shoes, and follow your nose to the handmade chocolates at The Best Chocolate In Town.
