Be Our Guest
When your next-door neighbor is Indianapolis, there are lots of added benefits. Visitors pour into the area to cheer for Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts and root for the NBA Pacers. Every May, a month-long party celebrates the Indianapolis 500 and the concert schedule ranges from the classical to the current.
Carmel is successfully building its own city center, blending municipal buildings with office, retail and walkable areas where you can grab a cup of coffee, shop for unique artwork and stroll the Monon Trail. Of course, there are the on-going attractions like the world-renowned Children’s Museum and Conner Prairie — an award-winning living history museum. And when you need to unwind from the excitement, our golf courses offer the sportsman a little slice of heaven. Public Courses include Plum Creek Country Club, Prairie View Golf Club, Mohawk Hills, Brookshire Golf Club, Sunrise and Purgatory. Woodland Country Club, Crooked Stick, home of the 2005 Solheim Cup, and the Bridgewater Club head up the private list. Altogether, Hamilton County hosts 22 golf courses, so you’ve been warned — area golfers have a lot of practice under their belts!
Through it all, Carmel offers the lodging options to show guests the finest in customer service. From national roadside chains to extended stay suites, there will be a soft bed turned down at the end of the day.
Nor will you leave hungry. Hoosier hospitality demands you are served the finest — whether you choose pizza or steak. Carmel’s concentration of exceptional independent restaurants and well-known chains mean the wait is always short and the food always cooked to perfection.
