There's more than basketball in the Hoosier State.

There's more than basketball in the Hoosier State.

Indiana has a reputation for being a small, rural state whose residents are wild about basketball. While that may be partly true, not many people realize the state's capital, Indianapolis, is the 12th largest city in the United States - larger than San Francisco, Detroit or Boston. There will be no shortage of moving companies available to get you there. 

Because of its size, residents of Indianapolis can enjoy a number of architectural attractions that aren't available in other cities across the country. The downtown area is famous for Monument Circle, which revolves around the 284-foot-tall Soldiers and Sailors Monument. Among the other architectural gems that line the circumference is Christ Church Cathedral, which was built in 1857 and is the oldest structure in the circle. Though a little newer, Circle Tower - built in 1922 - features hieroglyphs reminiscent of ancient Egypt, which was a big craze back then.

For all the urban grandeur of Indianapolis, it is still surrounded by farmland, which makes it the perfect location for a variety of farmer's markets. These farmers don't let a little thing like cold get to them - there are farmer's markets all year round. The Broad Ripple Market runs from May through November every Saturday and features more than 60 vendors selling goods ranging from fruits and vegetables to handmade cheese. The Indy Winter Farmer's Market picks up where summer markets leave off, running from November through April. The Original Farmer's Market at the Indianapolis City Market, meanwhile, goes all year long.

If you are looking for a new hometown that offers great nightlife options, Indianapolis is the place. The Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn at White River State Park may have an unwieldy name, but it has been consistently ranked among the best outdoor music venues in the country. For some good ol' rock 'n' roll, head to Radio Radio in the trendy Fountain District. Or, if you're looking for a bit of blues in a unique setting, try The Slippery Noodle Inn. This downtown establishment was built in 1850 and is the oldest operating bar in the state.

Fortunately, you can pick up a home in this mid-America metropolis for a fraction of what it would cost in other major U.S. cities. Not only is the cost of living 10 percent lower than the national average, according to real estate expert Bert Sperling, median home prices are $123,000.
