Best time to visit Indianapolis, IN, USA?

  • The best time to travel to Indianapolis is during the month of July when temperatures are hot but hotels are more affordable. During this month, a hotel room costs approximately $125 per night. That's 30% cheaper than what you would have paid in June. Temperatures hover in the low 80s, just a bit warmer than the average 75°F you would experience during high season.
  • In Indianapolis, tourism peaks in the early summer and this comes with higher accommodation rates. The Indy 500 week (May 24th - 29th), the Gen Con week (August 16th - 21st) as well as the Big Ten Football week (December 1st - 4th) are particularly busy dates that you should avoid if you don't like crowds.
  • Snow is common in Indianapolis in December - March.
