Mesmerizing architecture that you don’t get to see often. The centerpiece of downtown Indy. Wish we could have seen it at night when it is lit up. Simply a beautiful monument.

The Soldiers and Sailors Monument is a breathtaking structure. There is music, great places to eat, and just an amazing sight to behold.

My husband and I randomly decided to come to Indianapolis this weekend. No real reason. We left our hotel for a walk and ended up here. There’s so much to take in. Each statue and lamp post has so much to take in. I highly recommend checking it out.

This is a beautiful Monument in the center of the city. My wife and I rode the elevator to the top. The elevator is small and cramped. Once you get off, there are some narrow steps you have to climb. If you are a large person you may not make it through the narrow passage way. The views are amazing. Right now admission is free.

I love Monument Circle in May and how Indy is able to use it as part of the promotion for the 500. We stop by every year to see the driver’s names on the street signs and to check out all the different advertisements they have up for the year. Also, the Starbucks in monument circle is excellent!

I love historic places and would have given this place a perfect rating were it not for the disruption by homeless street people and the loud motorcycles that seemed to always be present around the fringes.

We drove down to Monument Circle one evening and were surprised by its sheer size. The lights were on and we circled it a few times. Then we parked and walked around on foot. It isn't on the same tier as the St. Louis Arch, but it is a tremendous tribute and a nice way to spend an hour.

It is a beautiful monument. It has a nice fountain and you are able to walk around it. It was worth a visit but there were quite a few homeless people around it. They never bothered us but it take away from the beauty of the fountain.

We stayed near here and saw it every day and night of our visit. It’s pretty, it’s picturesque, cool and night and in the daylight, but it’s not really something to do, just something to see. Also, even in February there are people around that make the experience more uncomfortable m: people trying to sell you things on the sidewalks, people yelling about life and throwing things, etc. I think we could have gotten the same effect of seeing this monument having just driven around the circle, rather than walked.
