Yeah I know over a year away 2014..But have never been to Indy for the 500 and have been a big race fan for over 50 years so time to get it checked off the bucket list. Would like to spend a week up there, would you stay Downtown or nearer the track? Like a little bit of luxury, my Hotel 6 days are long gone. Is the Bronze badge I keep hearing about something I should consider? Is the parade worth it? Is there a hotel near parade route in safe location, in our 60's so would like to be able to walk around evenings without looking over shoulder all the time. Museums you would take in being a FAN. What seats at speedway would consider for a 1st timer. Thanks ahead of time for any help I do appreciate it!!
