Broad Ripple has a free-spirited vibe, with laid-back cafes, global eateries, lively brewpubs and happening clubs. Emerging and big-name acts play at storied music venue The Vogue, and indie shops sell records, handicrafts and vintage clothing. Broad Ripple Park has views of the White River, while the Monon Rail Trail, popular with joggers and cyclists, cuts through the area, linking to the Central Canal Towpath.
Twenty minutes north of downtown (give or take a minute), this neighborhood offers a lively mix of bars and clubs, as well as art galleries, restaurants, and shopping. One-of-a-kind shops include the Indy CD & Vinyl record shop, Artifacts art gifts, The Shop with handprinted apparel, and Haus Love for designing your space (among many, many others).
