Canal Walk

Posted on 08.21.2013

Unless you abhor nature, beauty and history—and equally hate doing fun things for free—you should make your way downtown to Indy’s hidden gem, the Canal Walk. Situated on the west side of the city, the Canal Walk is a three-mile pathway lining the former historic Indiana Central Canal, and an escape to nature amidst the urban life of Indianapolis. Except for the towering skyscrapers decorating the background, you will not believe you are downtown. But perhaps the best part of the canal experience is that you can make it your own. Whether you would prefer to run or bike, leisurely walk with friends, romantically stroll with your significant other, view the artwork under the bridges and appreciate the history of the canal, or even rent a paddle-boat or kayak, the canal has something for you. While you’re enjoying the canal, I recommend you check out the Project 9/11 Indianapolis Memorial, which sits above the canal on W. Ohio St.  and contains two beams from the Twin Towers.
