What is downtown like during the day?

If my husband & I stay at a downtown hotel, would it be fun to walk around downtown during the day (Fri/Sat) or is it dead downtown during the day? We're thinking shopping, fountains, waterfront, walking trails, etc. We live in Indianapolis and downtown is pretty lively during the day with plenty of things to see/do so that's what we're comparing it to. If there isn't, we're happy to drive to other parts of town as well; we just really like downtown areas. Thank you!

The Big Four Bridge is fun to walk. Indiana ramp is not yet completed, but still a nice walk.

also, walking/jogging/bike trails along the Waterfront.

There are some great museums downtown too. The Louisville Slugger museum is great even if you're not a baseball fan. There's a 30 minute show all about Kentucky at the Kentucky Center for the arts. There's also the Muhummad Ali and Frazier Historic Arms museums. The waterfront is a great place to walk around and people watch. Fourth Street has some shops and restaurants although they are a bit touristy. The Seelbach hotel is very historical and the 21c Museum hotel is a must see. There are some great local restaurants as well. You'll find plenty of things to do on a weekend. Have fun!
