We will be staying at the Doubltree in Carmel. I heard that downtown Indy has a nice area with restaurants, bars, etc.
A couple of ?s:
Is it easier/better to get on a hwy to get to downtown from Carmel or go another way (not familiar with the area).
Any nice wine bars and/cigar bars. We like a lively scene but won't stay out much past 9pm.
Is there a certain main drag that houses most of these places--what streets or cross-streets should we look for? We'd like to park the car, then be within walking distance to places to go.
