Located 30 minutes' drive from Indianapolis, Carmel has a charm all its own. With a thriving arts scene, a busy social calendar and miles of walking and biking trails, you'll always find something to do in this Indiana city.
Carmel is home to unique independent art studios including Art Splash Gallery, Coats Wright Art & Design and Eye on Art Gallery. Feel free to browse or look for a special souvenir among the collections. Carmel's museums also offer visitors something different, from the Museum of Miniature Houses to the World's Smallest Children's Art Gallery. Monon Trail is perfect for an afternoon stroll or a bike ride. Bike share stations along the paved path make it easy for tourists to explore the area on two wheels. With the Palladium, the Tarkington and The Studio, you're spoiled for evening entertainment options.
Indianapolis International Airport, just off I-70, is the main airport servicing Carmel. There's a taxi rank on the terminal's lower level or you could organize a hired car in the airport to take you to Carmel. Road travelers will find Carmel halfway between U.S. Route 31 and State Road 421.
